Default Thaddeus Gibson

This is an interesting pick to me. A lot of people were complaining about them taking a OLB in the 2nd round, and we take another in round 4? He is too undersized to be a DE (6'2", 243) in our system. Can anyone explain this pick to me? Comments? Concerns? Suddenness and Glide?

Interesting you said?!? You mean from a psychiatric point of view?
I don't get it at all.

I had a good feeling we were targeting Gibson after we worked him out privately in Columbus during his pro day.

Lebeau and Butler must be making the picks.

Apparently the Steelers were after Gibson.

Here's a Bruce Davis pick. I don't get this pick. WTF? We just got an OLB in the 2nd round, what's going on?

They could project him as an ILB. Just a thought, I didn't think of that before. They could groom him for Farrior's spot, and it would explain the private workout.

One note on Gibson, he came into Ohio State as a stand up linebacker but was moved to defensive end after his freshman season. He may have less of a learning curve than other hybrids we draft.
