The rush LB spot in this defense has to be dominate at rushing the passer. Last year we were terrible at both spots rushing the passer.
That's why Montgomery is better over the TE where he can use his strength against the run game and his sacks will come in clean up where his motor takes over.
Williams is the rush linebacker to watch, I think. He's got the speed to do what Mercilus was expected to do.
I think we're going to see Reed and Montgomery used in a situational rotation at the SAM and Mercilus and Williams in a rotation as the Rush LB.
