OLB - Most people say that this is a strength of our team. I feel it is a weakness. We have good pass rushers and good run stoppers in Hali and Houston. Hali is a natural DE, and Houston looks to be the real thing as a 3/4 LB or you could just say stud that could poss play LB in the 4/3 scheme aswell as be an effective pass rusher off the edge... However we have NO players at LB expecially OLB that can cover TEs or RBs a big problem. If we would switch to the 4/3 we would get Hali back to his natural position, I believe a better fit for our Defensive Line accross the board. We need to bring in an ILB and an OLB that can cover wether we are changing to the 4/3 defense or not.
1 - Hali - Excellent pass rusher, and very good against the run. Natural position 4/3 DE and still feel Hali is a 4/3 DE playing out of position = Why the screen game works so good against KC...
2 - Houston - a very solid all aroud 3/4 OLB. Could have the ability to play LB in the 4/3 scheme as well and would deffeinatly be an effective pass rusher off the edge in the 4/3 alignment...
3 - Jones - Good ST player, average OLB at best, could better as pass rush DE in 4/3 alignment...
4 - Studebaker - Drafted to play 4/3 DE and has never really progressed into the 3/4 role. good depth as 4/3 rush DE...
Decent at the top very average overall, in desperate need of an OLB that can cover... All around look at the team WISH we where changing to a 4/3 look to get our players back into the roles they where originally drafted by Herman Edwards to play...
OLB is a strength of our team.
