What do you think of that. It seems like a bad idea at first because he played DE/OLB in college. But his skill set seems pretty good as a 2-down linebacker for playing the run. If we could put him and Arthur Brown in on running downs. And for passing downs we just sub in Jameel McClain (if healthy).
Now to get the the minimum word count I will show the depth chart on our defense, which now seems pretty good at stopping the run. Also, I am not sure if this is right, this is just my assumption on who will start.
DT: 1, Chris Canty. 2, DeAngelo Tyson. 3, Kapron Lewis-Moore. Analysis: I like our Canty acquisition. He should be a solid starter. Tyson did fine last year, despite being a 7th round pick. Lewis-Moore should be good when he's healthy.
WILL LB: 1, Arthur Brown. 2, Albert McClellan. 3, Josh Bynes. Analysis: Arthur seems like a good 3-down linebacker. McClellan did solid when he started last year. I don't know much about Bynes, but he seems like a good backup.
SAM LB: 1, Courtney Upshaw. 2, Elvis Dumervil. 3, Adrian Hamilton. Analysis: Don't get me wrong Doom will probably play more snaps. I think Upshaw will play the early run downs and Doom will pass rush. I don't know much about Hamilton either.
SS: 1, Matt Elam. 2, James Ihedigbo. 3, Christian Thompson. Analysis: Elam seems like a great pick and safety. Ihedigbo is a solid backup. I have high hopes for Thompson to be our future SS. Either way, a good group.
RCB: 1, Jimmy Smith. 2, Corey Graham. 3, Chris Johnson. 4, Marc Anthony. Analysis: I hope and I am expecting Smith to break out. Graham is a good #3 CB. Johnson is good depth. I love the pick of Marc Anthony in the 7th round. I think he could develop into one of our top 3 CB's (along with Webb, Smith, Graham, Jackson, and Brown).
