He can fill against the run inside, blow up blockers, he can cover and he can stop runs going to the outside. We wont need much pass rush from him.
He is a great cover OLB which is what we are missing, so yes he'd be very useful vs 2 TE sets. I have watched a lot of this guy and I can say 100% certainty he is not a ILB no more then he is a S. He does not fit at MLB nearly as well as you are saying. He has good speed and agility but makes stiff ridged moves in traffic and would be killed inside. He plays his best ball unhindered. It would be a bad bad move IMO. If we took him it would be to play OLB, I am sure of it. He is not a 2nd round talent for that matter. His best fit would be outside in a 4-3, either side.
