Im not a huge fan of the olb's as individual pass rushers on this team. I like barwin the most out of all the rotational guys, but I think watt is the best pass rusher we have. I'd like to see him get some weakside pass rush attempts in definite passing situations. And even occasionally stand up at Olb every once in a while .
Maybe every once in awhile as a wrinkle, but I don't know if making Watt have to run a few extra yards to get to the QB is such a hot idea. Guy is a huge bruiser up front and I think his versatility is better served rotating out of the 3 spots on the D-line (Similar to what Haloti Ngata does on the Ravens). If we're using the 4-down linemen look that Wade likes to bust out on 3rd down passing situations, I can see Watt being able to play any spot on that line. But starting out way further away from the ball seems like you're taking away Watt's ability to disrupt the QB or the ball carrier in a quick fashion.

Plus, you're possibly subbing out Tim Jamison for Barwin or Reed, and I think that takes the overall speed of the defense down a notch when you do that.
