    Peek is an OLB, Greenwood is an ILB, and if we draft Johnson, he'd be an ILB...

    first of all, Greenwood is already set to play ILB, and neither Wong nor Peek are very vialbe ILBs. Also, DJ is an ILB. The linebackers are probably going to be something like Wong, Morlon, Sharper?, Babin.

    Put Babin where you have DJ and then switch Greenwood and Peek and you'd be pretty close to what we will probably see as our starting defense next season...

    Foreman has already been released, but I wouldn't mind seeing the defense above as our starting D next year...

    I think we make Peek/Babin/Wong situational LB's Babin and wong on the run. Peek and Wong on the pass. and for an allout confusion drop wong inside and let babin and peek rush from the outside edges.

    Id like to see

    DE: Robaire Smith
    DT: Seth Payne
    DE: Gary Walker/Anttaj Hawthorne

    CB: Dunta Robinson
    CB: Aaron Glenn

    FS: Marcus Coleman
    SS: Glen Earl

    OLB: Jason Babin
    OLB: Demarcus Ware
    ILB: David Pollack
    ILB: Morlon Greenwood


    This could possibly be done with some trading up and down. possibly get the first and second picks from Philly for our 13th. Then use sharper and our second to trade up with Dallas for their #20. Something along those lines.

    I also want to put that dude from the CFL that we got, Tim Cheatwood, up on my list but since I have no real proof that'll he'll be good than I can't but I have a really good feeling bout him.

    I like that draft strategy Ware is getting more Praise than merriman at this point they are Saying Merriman might not be a tweener more a 4-3 end, and that Ware is the real deal, to be a dominate McGinest type of OLB

    Here is how it looks Pre Draft

    FS M.Coleman
    SS G earl
    RCB D Robinson
    LCB....................................................................A Glenn
    LOLB Babin/Peek/Wong
    LILB Greenwood/Wong
    RILB Greenwood/Wong/Peek
    ROLB Babin/Peek/Wong
    RE R Smith
    LE G Walker
    NT S Payne

    I think its a cool idea to use our versatility as it stands now... Why not get these Young guys accustomed to playing both outside and inside to add another wrinkle to our 3-4? It would be a thing of beauty to confuse them both on field personnal and play calling wise

    Thinking outside the box is a good thing. That said, our OLB's are converted DE's and they need to be able to take on OT's. Greenwood is way too small to take on 330 pound Offensive Tackles as the outside linebacker. He is giving up 100 pounds and is a chase guy, not a shed and attack backer. Its a nice idea but I don't think he isn't going to see any action on the edge. Nobody thought we would ditch Sharper though...so you never know.

    It's getting late for me...I saw Greenwood outside when I glanced at your post..but you have him inside. Time for me to get some sleep.

    I only have greenwood rotating on the interior, in my starter chart.

    But for the sake of argument if he was lined on the outside on a play it doesnt neccesarily mean hes goin to take on the tackle i may have him peel back into coverage.

    I just think with 4 extremely young versatile LB its not out of the realm to have them play in different LB spots. That way when we lose one its not as big of a loss as if he were stationed at that spot all season long.

    Plus it presents matchup problems and would cause a lot of audibles.

    not to mention it could even free up more for a Corner/Safety Blitz because since the QB is having to read the linebackers so carefully it can open things up from there too.

    It can be done. :idea:

    I think we wouldn't draft an LB in the first. I think the talent is there in the later rounds to develop a rookie by playing Wong inside this year and letting the rookie understudy that area.

    babin wont lose his job... i want to see us upgrade at CB or SS, preferably CB. with another shutdown corner along with dunta, the texans can play more aggressively, making the pass rush better. adam "pac man" jones is a possibility. he should be around.

    I would really like to upgrade our Safetys. Coleman is fine but Earl? I think we could do way better. While I was setting up that chart I even considered switching Faggins to that spot!

    Why is everyone talking about upgrading the S and CB position? We have Glenn, DRob, and Faggins at CB and Coleman and Earl at S. Earl was a rookie last season, give him time. We were 5th in the NFL last season with 22 INT's, and IMO our secondary is one of our strongest parts of the entire team...
