Didn't Wade play Braman a little bit at ILB in the preseason last year?

Now was it Braman or Reed folks were talking about moving to ILB. Williams gives Wade that option.
Montgomery is only 260. Too small for DE.

Which coach did they trot out at the press conference to talk about the pick? Herring, the LB coach.

3-4 DE's tend to be bigger, for example Smith is listed at 284 and Watt at 295.

but what do they know
The Press Conference Link
And here's what Herring said:

Quote:
(on if he envisions Montgomery lining up over the tight end initially) Thats a great question. What wed like to do is wed like to start him out on the tight end as a SAM position. First, we have to find out can he drop and how adequate he can be. If he can make the transition and drop to the point where first and second down, hes not hurting the football team and hes okay or at least adequate in his job. The other things that he brings to the table could make him an outstanding player and a potential star for us someday. Thats what we see, starting him out at SAM. Weve got to find out. Then, if he cant, we always have the easy transition to move him over to the weak side and say you rush 95 percent of the time, which we know he can do off the edge as he did as a d-end in college. We try the most difficult task first. We throw him in the fire and see if it works. At the least, we see him as having sub-rush value which right now, with Connor Barwin moving on and having Brooks Reed and (Whitney) Mercilus, the only other outside backer we have on campus is Bryan Braman. This guy, Bryan has talent, speed and ability, but this guy right now possesses a very raw power in speed to power rush that could help us as far as depth and pass rush as the year goes on. So he does fill a void.
Looks like OLB to me.

Well I am extremely disapointed that no NT has been taken I am so tired of having subpar players at the NT position. We needed to make the DL stronger to help Watt this year, expect every team to double Watt all year. If NT was a strength instead of a weakness doubling Watt would have been more difficult to do.

DE: Watt/Smith/Crick/Jamison
NT: Mitchell/???

We can possibly use Crick at times in the NT rotation, but I'd prefer to keep him at DE. I think we're going to be looking through the FAs for an NT and I'm hoping we get someone we like later.

But... I'm hoping someone like Swope drops to us, too.
Back to this analysis...
I don't have any issue at all with how you've got them aligned. Gives Wade lots of flexibility.

except at NT....
Rick, Wade.... we're waiting....

LSU plays a 4-3 defense. A 4-3 DE traditionally converts to a 3-4 OLB.

I'm thinking we go FS, CB, RB, or DT.
