I was referring to a 3-4 defense. Your examples are all 4-3 defenses, where generally the DE doesn't drop into coverage (other then zone blitz).

In a 3-4 defense, both OLBs will be called upon to rush the passer from time to time. However when dropping into coverage, there will generally be more space to cover on the weak side (ie no TE and defender, more space). The decision to put Babin on the left may have had more to do with his coverage responsibilities, generally, than sack opportunities.

I think it has more to do with his size and his ability to stop the run than his coverage skills. I think the long term thinking is Peek at the Weak side and Babin on the strong side by 2005.
