In the FWIW column, CJP said recently after the signings that the players will play the positions they want to play. Good indicator that Mr. Eason will play ILB until proven he cannot play ILB well enough to get on the field. At that point they may change.
What a guy is now physically as a HS player is not what he will be after a year in the S&C program. Personally I love the idea of playing a bone crusher inside that can manhandle O-linemen while doing it. Makes the other teams one dimensional.
He could play DE...He could play OLB...
Yet still be still listed as the starter at ILB.
Look at it as "flexplayers" vs "positions"
Ray Lewis was a great MLB and ONLY..a MLB.
Brandon Spikes was a good MLB and was a good outside rusher on 3rd down. And when Spikes did this...the backup MLB may have been on the field at the same time...playing MLB.
