I've been looking at the list of defensive ends available for the draft that could be converted to a 3-4 backer... Manny Lawson Kamerion Wimbley Mark Anderson Darryl Tapp Jeremy Mincey And quite truthfully I don't see one of them that would make a good "strongside" OLB in the 3-4. A see a lot of "good pass rusher" or "has pass rush potential" or "Shows good moves rushing the passer". But I also see a lot of "Lacks anchor strength" or "Must get stronger" or "Needs to hold up better at the point of attack". What I don't see is with any of them "Shows good coverage ability" or "Has the abililty to fight through blocks". I think given the needs of what a strong-side OLB is suppose to do in the 3-4 I don't see how any of these pass-rush specialists are going to do what we need them to do--- even though many here seem to be in love with sacks and damn any other responsibilities. Given that I think all these defensive ends are a poor fit for our defense I think we're looking at someone who has played OLB in college. Hawk obviously won't be there at #18. Bobby Carpenter is a great fit but not necessarily at #18. Chad Greenway would be a great fit but I doubt he'll be there at #18. Thomas Howard of UTEP is an intriguing prospect even though he may be better suited to the weakside. I dunno. I'm not seeing a lot of OLB that have the potential to come on in 2006 and contribute (a lot) on the strong side. I'm thinking that if we don't select an OLB in the first or second round the SOLB spot is Al Singletons this year. Is that terrible? No not necessarily. I think the defense was better with him out there. And maybe we do have too many holes to fill right now to fill them all out of this one draft.
