    wow people here predicted it. I didn't get it but I guess with Kevin leaving it makes sense now.
    who was ILB?

    Pelton did say he was going to get the best athletes on the field.

    I'm assuming Tre getting a lot of early reps now.

    Also hopefully A Harrel comes back strong from injury, he was doing really well before he got injured last year.

    This is a great move. We were wasting Jabari at middle linebacker because he was off the field 70% of the time due to nickel packages. I think he will emerge as a great player at DE. I have been suggesting this move for a long time.

    Go Jackets!

    Reminds me of Gerris Wilkerson who did a similar move during Gailey yrs when our DL was short because of injuries.

    I was racking my brain earlier about who it was that had made that move other than Sneezy, thanks for reminding me ;)

    I'm sure he will still play LB at times. I am guessing he is being cross trained.

    Whitehead comes in during the fall to play the same position. We are getting a lot of numbers at WDE I believe.

    does he have the first few steps needed? my only question about this move is his off the ball quickness..i never felt like he was quick twitchy enough to really be a good WDE...we will see...

    This worries me a little. It screams lack of confidence in the other guys in the pipeline. Hopefully I am over thinking this. He has been pretty successful at LB.

    You called it.. I didn't like it and still don't but you called it. Kudos
    I figure Beau Hawkins will get burn at ILB now too.

    Good move. The other backers, where we have good athletes and depth, are a step quicker. And this may be a big help at DE. Anyway JH-D may get more playing time at DE than LB and we can put more good athletes and experience on the field. I like it.

    Instant upgrade in speed off the edge, and will give Roof the option of flexing him to 3-4 OLB or 4-3 DE. It's going to help with confusing the defense if CTR chooses to create different looks before/after the snap. Not sure what happened last season...maybe new system, but didn't show the potential we saw in him as a RFr. He certainly has the frame and athleticism to grow into a DE.

    He has really put on some size at Tech. We know he is athletic. May have grown out of LB spot and into DE spot. Don't think we will see much if any drop off with our stable if young LBs in the system. Instantly adds depth to our biggest weakness on D and should create competition there. I like it. Hopefully will succeed for all involved.
