Jarius Jones and Moore are the two best 3-4 OLB in this draft for the strong side. But Spencer has played very good al around football and the chances we are low enough to get either Moore or Jones is slim.
You're right on the 240, I got his and Ezekiel Ansah's weight mixed up. (was looking at them at the same time). I still think he's the best replacement for Spencer in our system, and I see his athleticism transitioning very well. I don't see why you think he's better suited to DE though. He plays well in space from what I've seen. How does being tall hurt his ability to play OLB? It gives him length to keep blockers off his body and disrupt passing lanes.
Jarvis Jones is better than Jordan right now, i'll give you that, but I think in time Jordan will be better, he hasn't played the position long and is still raw in comparison. As far as Moore goes, he is a stud when he gets to pin his ears back all game, but that's not what our SOLB does, I think he's the one better suited to playing 4-3 DE.
