I actually think his best shot in a 3-4 would come if he got bigger and stronger to play the 5 technique - kind of like the 49ers are going to do with Tank Carradine. If he stays around his current weight, then 4-3 LE who has the length to set an edge. Would like to see him play a little lower - will rely on his raw power, but can get tied up if that doesn't work.
He was one I really wanted to look at closely at the Senior Bowl, but due to poor NFLN coverage have seen pretty much nothing of him. Haven't seen him mentioned that much in reports either. Will be looking closely every time he's in the game Saturday.
This is what I'm thinking. He's 6'6" 272 with really long arms, and doesn't look anywhere close to being maxed out.
He could play at 290-300 easily. I just want to see him against the run. He's not a 3-4 OLB candidate IMO. 4-3 DE or 3-4 DE, and possibly a guy who can shift to a 3 tech on passing downs if he continues to add weight.
