    Comparing him to any good nfl LB is ridiculous.

    Yeah, he looks ok on his "highlights"... watch the highlight/lowlight videos. He stinks it up 80% of the time.

    His play vs teams like Oregon, Cal, and Temple was absolutely embarrassing.

    I agree at times he looks out of place. They did use him all over the field, DE, OLB and MLB. I don't think he is the kind of guy who can do those kind of things in the NFL and be successful. He looks more consistent as a rush OLB or DE. I still think the ultimate move is to become more of a 3-4 team and play him at OLB. Until they make the switch he will be a joker like LB.

    So now the objective is to make our defense fit him and not the other way around? We have almost no 3-4 type players!

    We could have drafted a 3-4 NT in Powe as late as the 5th rd and did not. I'm tired of hearing about this really.

    I was trying to think of an NFL comparison for Akeem Ayers, and I think I found the perfect one: Anthony Spencer (Cowboys).

    Couldn't agree with you more dude. We have 0 NTs, JJ could probably do 3-4 DE, I don't think Tony Brown could. Derrick Morgan would be stuck, I don't see his excelling in 3-4 OLB or DE. Ayers would be our only 3-4 OLB, and he's not even that good at rushing the passer. Who would be our ILB? Witherspoon and McRath? That's nothing great. We would need almost a complete overhaul to run a 3-4, we'd need a NT, a couple 34 DE, a new LB corp.

    This isn't coming from us, this is coming from Jerry Gray, our DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR. We're also going to try to get a vet DT in free agency which could easily be an NT.

    Silly. I wonder who the heck is going to play DE, OLB, and ILB in the "34" considering we have no talent in any of those positions for the 34 D. :hmm:

    I'm not saying I'm some 34 D guru, I'm just saying Jerry Gray apparently feels we can show a 34 look. I'd trust his opinion over anyone's on this forum, even my own. lol.

    True that, he must see something we don't. Or he has a "secret weapon"!

    We should do pickup the underachieving bust Vernon Gholston, why not? He'd be cheap, could have some depth at DE and then we could use him as a 3-4 OLB when we show that look.

    I think we might see some guys adding some weight too. But yeah there are a few guys we can still target in FA.

    Sometimes I think people are in this mindset of the usual year where we are pretty much already set with our roster at this time.
