I'm just a little reserved on Wong switching to the right side and having Babin start on left. Wong may not have been the greatest sack master but he sure did do a lot of things to disrupt plays on the left side. Good run stuffer, good zone & Man coverage, and great attitude. I was thinking that Babin would be a perfect fit on at the ROLB once Clemons had an exit, but since Babin was playing alot at the LDE spot in college, this may be the best place to put him. Babin does lack the cohesion with vets, coverage ability and a new system. All this and he has to keep an eye on the FB and TE when they go out of the backfield, something he will be new to. We lose veteran leadership and play when we switch Wong over, although Babin may be the better player, it may take a while. It's tough for a rookie LB to come right in in the 3-4 and expect to be producing great numbers. It may take time, which is why we may have elected to try him out right away because we are still a few years away from contention.
