They draft two defensive ends to play outside linebacker plus you have mercilus and willie jefferson is showing promise. i dont know why they didnt give any game reps to brooks for ILB.
that montgomery and travardo williams picks look wasted.
Probably due to Merci and Montgomery being injured and Trevardo not exactly lighting it up in TC. The Texans are just as thin at OLB as they are at ILB.
I agree, though. It would've been nice to see. ILB might be a more natural position for BReed.
