You could use him at OLB until you replace Tulloch. It's a decent way to learn the scheme, you can still be a leader in that case.


That would be 5 years from now.


Not necessarily. Trades could be explored, could release him early, etc.

Why though? Hes consistently our best defensive player and gives his all 100% of the time. On a team where we lack talented players with good character, we'd be fools to push this guy out

Just as we'd be fools to pass on a player of Te'o's caliber.

In 2-3 years, Tulloch may not be the same guy we see today.

What about moving Tulloch to the outside? I haven't put a lot of thought into it, but what do you think about it?

Awful. He becomes a liability

Why would we be fools for passing on a player that is playing a position where we have good starters and good depth?

How? The only thing he has on him is INT's, and those weren't due to talent as much as people think rather poor throws. Tackling? Kuechly. Speed? Kuechly. Instincts? Kuechly. Shedding Blocks? Tie. Better supporting cast in college? Te'o. Benefitting most from a great NT? Te'o. I dont see what Te'o has over Kuechly other than 10 pounds.

Teo might be the most overrated prospect this year. He still doesn't have great speed, he has some INTs but three of them are on deflections. He is more AJ Hawk than Pat Willis. I don't think he is an anchor, therefore you don't draft him that high or over other players at need positions who likely will be BPA. The media has made Teo a top 5 pick with the family/girlfriend story and Heisman hype.

That is funny because Revis wasn't even taken in the top ten.
