I think that it is funny how people think that it is such a stretch of the imagination to ask an DE to play OLB. Now think about that statement for a second and let it sink in a bit. A DE playing OLB in a 34 defense. I have read stupid statements comparing it to Alex playing OLB or Miller playing Tackle. REALLY!?! Dobbs is listed at 6'2" and 275 lbs. Haralson is listed at 6' and 255 lbs. Brooks is 6'3" and 259 lbs. I think that if he was able to shave off 15 to 20 lbs will put him right in their ball park. He has all off season to lose the weight and learn the position. I think he is a better athlete than people give him credit for and would like to see what the kid can do at OLB. My question to you is why not?
