Default Strong Side OLB

If Brooks Reed were to be moved inside, who do we have to replace him?

The SLB, or "Sam", plays opposite the TE and has coverage responsibility, as well as setting the edge against the run. Rushing the QB is not a primary responsibility.

Before being placed on IR, Trevardo Williams was going to be tried at the Sam position, but at 6'-1" and 241 lbs is normally considered undersized for the position.

Has Mercilus developed any coverage skills?

I've been giving thought to Barr being our first pick, but he projects to the Will position; so where does that leave Mercilus?

Something similar applies to Clowney. He really doesn't project to Crennel's 2-gap 34 as a DE. His best position would be as a pass rush specialist from the Will position because he lacks the coverage skills to project to Sam.

Who in the draft has the coverage skills and size to play (edit) Sam?
