Since Tulane threw something like 48 times last week, I assume we will be in a nickel a lot. Which two linebackers will stay in and which DB will be added?
In general from a base 4-3 to a 4-2, the Will LB will be replaced with the 5th best DB on the team. The Will LB is usually the smaller of the 3 LBs and a good tackler.
Not true necessarily. Your Will is usually your most athletic and quickest LB. So it would ideal to keep him on the field. The nickel replaces the LB who is the worst of the three in coverage and assignment
