Default Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos

Since Peek keeps getting injected--he weighs 250 lbs at least according to the Texans. Some of the lower weights have snuck onto the MB from his college days. At least as far as a 3-4 Taylor has no chance at OLB. Remember Capers comments on Babin (260lbs)--they put him at LOLB in large part because he carries 10 lbs more than Wong (250 lbs). Taylor would get abused going straight up against left or right tackles. No point wasting what could be a top 3 safety in the league to make a fast/flashy, but ineffective LB. As for CB, IMO all the size comparisons to the new WR's etc. and predictions of giant CB's miss the mark. The best CB's such as Deion Sanders, Champ Bailey or more recently Terrence Newman, Dunta Robinson & DeAngelo Hall and our own Aaron Glenn are not big guys--that is because the most important traits for a CB are instinct for timing and closing speed, i.e. the ability to close an apparent opening while the ball is in the air. Bigger guys can certainly have the former, but it appears the latter is much more common in "smaller" players.
