I'm sure that Cole will get a look by the Vikings in preseason this year, as I'm sure he did last year with Brinkley coming off an injury and going into his first year as the probable starter, right now Cole hasn't faced that high a level of competition yet in his preseason play, but if he flashes and plays well again, I'm sure they'll pay attention to him and see how to does with reps against higher competition.

I think Cole would be great starting at Weak Side LB. I don't feel comfortable with him starting at MLB, I don't think he has the back pedal to drop in a deep zone nor the speed to make up for it.

Agreed, athleticism seems to be more essential for a MLB than a WLB in the Cover 2. If anything, Jasper Brinkley might be better served playing WLB in the Vikings defense than MLB. OLBs rarely cover RBs in man, in Cover 2 so having an OLB being able to keep up with a RB isnt a glaring necessity as it would be in other schemes.

I think Cole wouldnt be a completely terrible option to consider as a WLB, at least he should be part of the competition if the Vikings lose Erin Henderson.

I still question Cole's instincts and ability to play MLB on run downs. WLBs really dont have a difficult task defending the run, that is why i suggested him moving out there. Really, the WLB doesnt take on blocks like a SLB or MLB would and is given a bit more freedom to knife in and make a play. Maybe Cole could get a shot at just playing in nickel/dime sets.

I'm hoping he becomes a Special Teams Ace.

anything after that is a huge bonus.

and Erin Henderson doesn't deserve to be brought back after 16 garbage regular season games.

Cole may be one of those guys that needs a few years to develop. Let him play special teams for awhile while he learns and becomes more accustomed to the nfl.

Pretty sure he earned it with more than two plays in preseason, unlike Cole. That's the difference.

He does. For a guy with a 6'5 239 pound frame, he lacked upper body strength. You expect an athlete that tall to be closer to the 250 pound range.

Wasnt Cole a QB at one point? That could explain it, most QBs dont train to get overly muscle bound. Unless your Brady Quinn.

I also believe he was recruited as a TE.
