  • DE/OLB Prospects?

    Who are some of the most talented and versatile prospects on the DL the last couple drafts?

    I was thinking before back to 2008 and all the attention Chris Long got, with opinions varying from 3-4 OLB, 3-4 DE, 4-3 DE, or even 4-3 UT.

    Everson Griffen out of USC this year played both DE and some standup rush backer while in college, shows some serious potential anyway with his triangle numbers.

    Orton will never be in the same class as the Drew Brees or the Peyton Mannings or the Tom Bradys of the world. Kevin Kolb has the potential to be that kind of player.

        Tyson Jackson is a good one.

        I listed as versatile off the top of my head but as far as the most talented, a couple on my list don't belong.

        I like Suh but I saw him as a 4-3 UT all along.

          Gerald McCoy played every DL position in college and was seen dropping into shallow coverage at times. In the 3-4 he played both NT and DE, and in the 4-3 he lined up at NT, UT, and both DE spots. I won't say that he wouldn't have had to make adjustments/improvements, but he could probably have projected to 5-Tech just fine.

            I think another good one is Mr. Tyson Alualu. He is alot like Tyson Jackson was.
