OLB in a 3-4

But do you think a 4-3 team may draft him and put him at DE ?

I would like to see him in Tennessee's 4-3 if im perfectly honest

he can easily pack on 10lbs to give him slightly more bulk

Maybe, he will need to bulk up alot more if they do, he is only 255lbs. He could be a alright DE, but alot better OLB IMO

In the games i've seen he doesnt look like a pass rusher. 4-3/3-4 OLB to me.

I'd definitely lean 3-4 OLB for Sergio Kindle. I don't know that he'd be physical enough for a 3 down stint on the line. I could see 4-3 SLB/3rd Down DE before I'd see full time DE in a 4-3.

Cover 2 DE, 4-3 SLB, 3-4 OLB

Imo just 3-4 olb, imo he is not a good fit in any other kind of D

What about Hardy, this guy looks like a DE to me but everything I read talks about him making the shift.

If Hardy is over 260 already, there's no reason he can't play a 4-3 DE in the NFL.
Nowadays I think so many edge rushers coming out of college are versatile and athletic enough to be productive in almost any scheme, whether they're playing from a two or three point stance.

Well Hardy has that experience standing up and moving around. He's played linebacker and he's looked great. He's a great natural pass-rusher also. So it fits for a lot of people. I'm really not sure where he'll play in the NFL though.

I think Kindle is a legit 255.

I think Kindle is a 3-4 OLB.

I think Kindle would be a SLB in a 4-3.

If you're a college DE and weigh under 270 lbs, then there's no stopping the 3-4 OLB projections.

I'm with Fenikz. I can see him play RE in a Cover 2, like a Dwight Freeney or Jevon Kearse. I think 3-4 OLB is his best bet, since when I've seen Kindle play, I haven't seen the consistent pass-rush technique that 4-3 DE's need. He can certainly learn it and become that, but right now, 3-4 OLB where he can use his natural athleticism is perfect.

Greg Hardy is now injured and out for the remainder. Lots of injuries with that one. He may drop quite a bit on that alone.
