I also believe Ryans will be our most productive LB. At least he is a true Linebacker and not one of the project guys the Texans have drafted to play LB in the past few years. He should be very solid if not a great player there.

In this defense LB's will be asked to stop the run first and foremost.
I don't expect to see many LB's coming on blitzes. The line has responsibility for the pass rush.
However I think Orr has shown enough to be kept on to see what he can offer as a 4-3 LB.

Don't forget if Texans get Brooks in supplemental...this LB corps will be much sweeter.... Wong will start on PUP list. I like Polk, Orr, and Ryans. Hopefully, Greenwood will play to his contract. Answer: Ryans

that will be good - how about a cross between Tatupu and Odell Thurman who a had good rookie season at the Bengals?

If we get brooks and he is healthy, he is our best LB period...not questions asked. He is a better LB than Hawk IMO.

But assuming we stay with our current roster, its a toss up between cowart and ryans. Ryans should be better, but may not play as much.

IMO, Ryan will be our solid all around LB. The gritty gets it done but it won't look pretty kinda guy.

As far as sacks go it depends, Does Orr and Peek play same side linebacker? If they do how well do they adjust to playing a 43 -vs- 34?

Greenwood couldn't tackle his own shadow, Cowart's a little over his prime and has showed that the last few years, is Polk still a Texan? Are we crossing Babin off the linebacker list?

It will be an interesting year being able to mix and match our DL and linebackers depending on the situation. Smith has a lot to work with.

Default As a Bama Fan:

I saw Demeco play a lot the last few years and I know he is going to become a fan favorite. I think he will get a lot of grooming this year early on by our newley aquired Cowert andby a returning Wong.

I don't really think they want him at ILB (if thats what you are implying). I'm hoping we get someone used to the position to play there, rather than putting an outside guy inside (remember Greenwood?). It sort of concerns me that we didn't draft an ILB to groom behind Cowart, though

My impression was ILB. I thought Ryans played both inside and outside?

Inside makes the most since considering all our young, raw, fresh talent, are our outside linebackers. If Ryans does not play inside that leaves us with Cowart, Polk, Wong. One is hurt, one is older and the other (Polk) would be a solid edition to the middle but I dont see him being able to do it by himself.

Personally, they all seem to me to be a mish-mosh of mediocre to below-par folks. Greenwood came in here with a lot of hype but a lot of observers claim he has disappointed while Wong, from what I understand, has been somewhat medicore. None of these guys really stand out, IMO.
