He also makes all the calls on the fly after the offense makes adjustments to their alignment.
He is the #1 reason that Alabama defense has been stellar the past two seasons. Terrence Cody has had a minimal impact compared to this guy.
However, he is a MLB pure and simple. I wouldn't mind moving Demeco outside to WILL though and placing McClain at MLB. With Cushing at SAM we would have one of the NFL's best LB cores in a matter of years. Kid is a flat out player.
Would you be ok with Reeves on one side and Quin on other with FS Thomas on Quin's side? I think DR is out of here.
