Some are labeling him as a better fit in the 3-4 scheme than in the 4-3. He currently doesn't have the size you look for in a DE. I think a lot will depend on how big he measures at the Combine. He sounds like a player that is a better fit at DE than OLB, but I think ultimately he's going to have to come into Indianapolis at close to 260 if he wants to make the commitment to being a DE. And even if he does do that, I'm not sure I'd want him. I don't like guys that put on a lot of weight between November and February.
