Negatives: Lacks ideal size and his frame is at maximum growth potential Does not have the upper body strength to stack and control

Tell me that doesn't sound like they are describing Donald. Minus a few of the negatives.
Biggest difference to me is that Donald is an inside player. I think there should be some drop off when you're taking a DE & converting him to OLB, even if he'll be primarily rushing the QB.

There should definitely be a hit when converting a guy from DT to OLB.
