I would be hesitant to use a 1st round pick on him to play 4-3 OLB. He played DE his entire college career and if he played 3-4 OLB he would still be a pass rusher. But he would no longer be a pass rusher as a 4-3 OLB he would just be a LB.
Since he has never played that position and has always been a pass rusher I would hesitate to draft him that way. He has never had coverage responsibilties and would have to learn. He would also have to change his defensive mentality as he would not be rushing the passer on every play.
He could be great with that change and he could also bust. As a 4-3 team I would rather we draft him as a DE.
