We are taking Cam newton like it or not.
hes only been a D1 starter for one year....
And yes, we all know were not taking Cam Newton..
How do you guys feel about Von Miller?
He's the best OLB in this years draft. 6'3 240, runs somewhere around a 4.5/6. Problem is.. he ran a 3-4 in college & seems like the perfect fit for a NFL 3-4 scheme. I wonder how he would play as a 4-3 OLB?
he might be good after a year or 2 of adapting to the diffrent playing style but he would not be a plug in starter. ether way top 15 might be just a tad high for him anyway.
i could see us selecting him though if we elect to get a diffrent HC. a lot of HC canidates run 3-4 schemes.
I doubt we switch to the 3-4. We'd only have 1 legit 3-4 DE (Jones) and not sure about any of the LBs playing in a 3-4. It's possible, very unlikely though. Von Miller would be a helpful addition if we did switch .
I do not like the idea of drafting a 3-4 linebacker and trying to convert him, that always seems to end in disaster.
I want Robert Quinn. Maybe we have to trade up for him, I don't care. The guy is amazing off the edge, perhaps a little small for run support. It's been a while since I've seen a prospect with his burst, pursuit, and flexibility. Put Morgan on the left side, he's more suited for run support anyway.
Sorry I phrased that wrong, I guess it's more DE to 3-4 olb is a struggle, so I can't see the transition from 3-4 LB to 4-3 LB being an easy one either. Meh I'm kinda a draft noob though.
I wasn't trying to bust your chops or anything, I was just honestly curious. Sometimes, the DE to 3-4 OLB move doesn't work (Jason Babin), sometimes it does (Dumervil for the Broncos, Tamba Hali for the Chiefs seems to be doing well).
I would think that the LB transition would be easier, because they should already be experienced in pass coverage. I also think the Titans don't have the personnel to make that move without a few years to collect bigger guys.
