Re: The OLBs
It looks like our OLB's are: Reed, Mercilus, Braman, Montgomery & Jackson.
Can someone clarify, is it Reed on the strong side and Mercilus on the weak side? I'm assuming Jackson plays behind Mercilus. Is this correct? Which side does Montgomery play? Behind Reed? How about Braman? Which side is he projected to?
Mercilus is unproven and missed time in training camp and the preseason games. This side of the ball is a huge question mark.
Of this group of LB's, Braman has the most experience possibly for this second position. In the Dallas game he seemed to drop into coverage fairly well and on plays to the opposite side, took proper angles to help out down field if necessary. At the POA he made tackles but it seemed after giving up 3 or 4 yards.
Now that we know the players, how do you see this position settling out.
