He would be perfect in the type of defense I would run because he can cover TE's and most RBs out of the backfield. I'd put him with Thomas Davis moreso than Derrick Johnson because I trhink DJ is a little more pure OLB.
But I still don't know what any team saw Thursday night that would have made them comfortable with waiting a round or two for the offensive lineman they wanted. ---Todd McShay
We just converted half our LB to DL. We have a 30m starting DL, it better be pretty friggin good.
