    ILB seems shallow in this draft, so I was looking at some OLB that can play it.

    Norwood is a playmaker with good 10-yd burst. Could he play the ILB roamer in Wade's scheme?

    His description reads like he was a pass rusher in college but really should be a 3-4 ILB.

    He could really rush the passer from inside on passing downs and be a force on the inside if he could learn the position.

    One thing is for sure: This guy was a baller at South Carolina!

    Eric played ILB some as a Sophomore when Jasper Brinkley got hurt.

    Sounds like an interesting idea. I was thinking of him more has on OLB, but maybe he has the instincts and ability to move to ILB.

    If Weatherspoon fell i'd take him to replace one of our ILB in the next year or two.
