Most will go with a nickel, removing the NT. If they go to a dime then they'll take that other LB off the field, but again, most teams do not do that as often as we do.
I doubt that.
The eagles took mychal kendricks last year in the top half of the 2nd round. He played Olb in their 43 but will most likely be an ilb in a 34. He's better in pass coverage than Demeco and I'd venture to say that he's their future at the MLB position.
He's a good player and I'd personally take him over every MLB I've seen in this upcoming draft. He's also really athletic and like I said good in pass coverage.
I'm not sold that Demeco would be their everydown guy in the middle. He might start off as that, but I think they'd try to get kendricks acclimated in that role.
