Rep Power: 11 georgewashington is ridin' the pine

Babin is going to be a good player, but he needs to be playing what he was projected to play, a DE. If you look at all the draft analysis it talks about how he got up to 280 pounds at the combines and how he was a good rusher, even playing downs as a DT in college. Clearly looking at that and his production so far this year (stopping the run and more inside rushing skills as opposed to speed moves) why would the texans not be interested in playing him as a DE at least in passing downs? That would allow the best three rushers in the game, being Wong, Peek and Babin. Through in the blitz of Sharper up the middle or Robinson from the corner and there are going to be sacks.
