Brandon Graham: Effective OLB or 3-4 Casualty


Was pumped to see Graham in the final 2 games finally remind me of why we drafted him in the 1st round. Clearly too small to play DE in a 3-4, I worry he won't be nearly as effective as an OLB. In fact he could be a glaring liability. He hasn't played off the line of scrimmage before and more importantly opposing offenses will exploit his inexperience in pass coverage. Hence he needs to be up on the line 24/7 hunting QBs and containing RBs. But the birds paid big bucks to Connor Barwin to be the regular weakside pass rusher right? He didn't come here to cover. So assuming we won't rush both guys every pass play, TEs/RBS will be salivating to isolate Graham in coverage. Graham's too darn good to be relegated to a situational pass rusher. What's your plan B Davis?
