Why is Coples playing OLB?
I thought the idea of drafting this kid was to have 2 HUGE above average DE's and cause havoc up front so blitzing would be easier and we can get pressure easier with just a base defense & no extra man. Why in the world is Coples playing OLB? He's way too big for that IMO and not fast enough. I thought he would switch back and forth from DT to DE depending on the situation. He looked really good last year at certain times and seemed to be figuring things out. Why switch him in year 2 when he was just figuring it out in year 1? I'm trying to follow this as much as I can from reading articles and etc but what am I missing?
