Re: Clowney at Spur or MLB
I don't want to make folks mad, because I know its touchy right now. so, don't take this wrong. he doesn't have the tools to play linebacker in college football. he has all the physical tools, not the mental ones.
guys, the middle LB is the leader of the defense, and is most always the guy changing the plays at the line. he's responsible for communicating to the other defenders, and getting them in position.
he doesn't have enough knowledge of the entire defensive playbook, the leadership skills, and maybe not a big enough gas tank. the gas tank I don't know, but he looked pooped yesterday to me. if so, he will not last a game a middle lb. way more chasing the play there, than at DE.
HE'S IN THE BEST POSITION. as said, you don't take your best pass rusher away from the line.
