No, but CHris Carter is a 6'2 250 lb guy who had 10 sacks
last year, and he was available in the late rounds for whatever reason....he is EXACTLY the type of guy you can afford to try and move to 3-4 OLB - and to prove the point, was taken shortly after the Jets pick by the Steelers, a team that also runs the 3-4.
Nothing in the draft is a guarantee, but think of the best possible outcome for he picks:
Carter turns into an effective OLB Pass Rusher
Or Kerley becomes a slot receiver and Kick/punt returner.
I'd take the Pass Rusher any day of the week.
