    He projects to play DE in a 3-4. He's far too big to play OLB in a 3-4 alignment (he's around 290-295).

    Heyward is not in any way a pass rushing OLB...

    Our needs imo...

    1. DE - Ellis is likely gone and whoever plays this position also has to be able to bring an inside pass rush.
    2. OLB - Just not much this year from the OLB position. Taylor was our best and that's not saying much.
    3. DT - Devito is a 3rd man type of guy. Hopefully Jenkins gets healthy.
    4. RT - We can survive with Hunter, but if a guy like Carimi falls, he'd be awesome.

    Heyward can play DE in a 3-4 or a 4-3 alignment. I suspect Gholston would be a LOT better if you ran a 4-3, but I guess you won't find out unless a 4-3 team picks him up now will you?

    I was about to say that Heyward isn't an OLB but I think Fiji meant Heyward AND a pass rushing OLB.

    Misnomer... Gholston wouldn't be better.

    It still comes down to being able to get off blocks and beating your man. Gholston simply doesn't do that. Personally I think it's due to a lack of want-to. He doesn't show that next level desire.

    There are a lot of guys who are OK just hanging out on the peripheral of everything. He's one of them.

    He showed signs of it in college, but he would still make a number of plays that screamed he could be special.

    Oh well.. No GM bats a thousand. I'm pissed I missed on him.

    In terms of college, wasn't Gholston more of a bull rusher who goes thru the blocker, instead of around them?

    Justin Houston. Our solution to our need for a pass rushing OLB.

    This guy is an animal. 6-3 260 good size and as you can see very quick to get to the QB
