We have a quality group for the DL but would need ro draft OLB and have otherneeds like OL. Down the road maybe but for the immediate future we should sray with the 3-4.
exactly. i couldn't help but chuckle at the post suggesting woodley or worilds as 4-3 OLBer.
they'd get torched all day long trying to cover TE's and RB's.
timmons could play the middle , harrison could maybe be the sam , and the closest thing to a will backer on the team would be troy.
