He would probably be better at inside where he could concentrate more on making tackles on the runningbacks, instead of attempting to come in from the outside and falling down missing tackles and sacks
I don't see that at all. He looks fast and agressive at times as he is still thinking first, then reacting due to learning a new position. He has plenty of speed to drop into coverage like a 3-4 OLB needs to have. I don't expect more than 6-8 sacks out of him his first year so 2 puts him on course. Jeff Posey had less than 10 his first year in our system and he has been our best OLB so to date (in terms of pass rush).
