Moving Wong inside does put the best athlete's on the field but at a cost . Peek is the 3rd OLB right now , with him starting who is the back-up on either side ? Moving Wong inside more or less forces the need to draft an OLB or pick one up in free-agency .
As far as Sharper and Foreman having a high number of tackles , that is the nature of the 3-4 D , Lineman take up the blocks , Linebackers Fill the gaps and outside contain , meaning they will have a high amount of tackles . The stat that hurts is when your Secondary has the vast majority of tackles .... meaning the LB's arent able to make the stop before the RB gets into the secondary ...... that is the sign of a team with real problems stopping the run .
The Texans have issues on the D-line especially since Gary Walker cant seem to stay on the field , even when he is he hasnt made the plays . The guy is Overpaid , Oft' injured , unproductive and nearing the end of his carreer . Games are won and lost in the trenches.
There are still a few holes on Defense , I'd expect BPA at any rate . I doubt that either LB position is of major priority at this point .
