What position does he play?
Would he replace Coakley/James or Singleton?
i assume you mean derrick johnson?
Yes /. . .
well from what i've heard about DJ is he does a good job when the play goes away from him and he can chase it down but he tends to struggle when the play comes right at him. this would leave me to believe that he would be better suited at the weakside which is coakley's and james position.
i think though with his coverage skills, size, and athletic ability he could eventually be a good strongside backer.
In the Cowboys system, he could fit in at middle linebacker as well. The hope is to use the d-line to tie up the o-line and let the linebackers flow to the ball. He could do that well.
he is an OLB.....think of 49er Julian Petersen....I have a UT Defense video clip with some hi-lights of him...if anyone can post it or wants it e-mailed to them IM me or post on this thread .(it is a 37 MB clip)
