Honest question, what are Bill O`Brien type players? Will he use zone blocking schemes? 3-4 defense? Creative coverages? Only tall TEs? Will he use a FB in the passing game? 5 WR sets? Wildcat? Blitz a lot or let the front handle the pass rush?
I'm certainly not qualified to answer for BO'B but I'd be very surprised to see him fill out the roster without a play maker in the slot. Can it be Kmart? He seemed to be coming along steadily. Posey? Bonner?
No quotes or links, just my hunch.
