Kevin Dodd thus far has been a non factor. This is a fact. The question why is more difficult to pinpoint. I started breaking down some videos of him and also started to look up his college combine comparables and it hit me. Kevin Dodd is playing out of position. There I said it. His measurables and body type is not of an outside linebacker but that of a 3-4 defensive end. If you compare his measurables to those of the top 3-4 DL drafted in the last several years he matches up very similarly. The problem is that we already have Jurrell Casey, DaQuan Jones, and another disappointment in Austin Johnson at that position. I believe that Kevin was drafted to replace DaQuan eventually but was athletic enough to play at OLB for a couple of years and would eventually slide inside to DE. I think DaQuan’s play along with Kevin’s injuries changed things. This year is the make or break year for Dodd. I can see Vrabel moving him around and using him inside more in training camp and preseason. If he balls out then he has a chance to redeem himself. If not then he plays out his rookie contract and is gone when it expires. I see talent in him and as long as that foot is healed up properly and he is moved to DE he has the potential to impress. Titan UP!
