[FONT=Times New Roman]That was apart of Tapps bio.. He's a playmaker and that's that.[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]About Barry - our problems were mainly protecting DB. Now if Barry can do that first, then I'm all for him.[/FONT]
There's a big difference between playing the run at defensive end and running down ball carriers in space or covering TEs down the field. I know Tapp has talent. I know he made plays in college. But he did all that at DE. He's neither fast nor very athletic, and those are two things a DE needs to play in space and make the shift to OLB.
