Could be a possibility, it would be funny to see a 6'8" LB. I think he will be used on passing situations in the rabbit package with his hand in the dirt.

He's pretty tall. Maybe in a 3-4 scheme. But kind of a high center of gravity to be a LB in our scheme.

He very well could be. He just needs to put some weight b/c Lawing said he is the most athletic (other than clowney) on the DL.

Darius English will push Sutton for the starting DE position. He's going to be a great one for us. The only possibility of a LB move is Kelvin Rainey(Likely). Our youngsters like Larenz Bryant and David Johnson probably will get some field time. (Bryant might win the WLB position)
With Cooper likely out next year we have Holloman and Kaiwan Lewis(4 star ILB prospect) and we'll need our young guys to provide depth.

AmonRa777, where have you been after all this time? Good to hear from you. Used to love reading your posts back in '06 & '07. Regarding English, he'll be Clowney's backup I'm guessing. He'll still see plenty of PT at backup DE in Whammy's defense.

Marcquis Roberts and Kelvin Rainey will probably make the switch to LB.

They could decide that Mason Harris needs to be a LB full time.

Might see a guy like Kyle Fleetwood make the move.

WHY do people constantly forget about Alfy Hill? HE is the guy who will push Sutton for starting DE. Sutton should be JD's primary backup, with Hill taking the strongside DE position (better fit there than Sutton is IMO)

Clowney Hill Sutton English etc will be the most talented group of DE's in the nation.. add a healthy Quarles and Surratt, maybe the most talented DL in the nation.

Just please stop forgetting Alfy people, he is better than most think.

I can't believe anyone would put an unknown in Alfy Hill in front of a stud like Sutton. Total lack of respect for IMO the second best DE on the team.

Darius English will not take Chaz Suttons spot! That is proposterous, a DE that had seen action and recorded sacks/tackles will get over taken by a guy who had None! Yeah right c'mon please!

You guys are so touchy.
Darius English has so much talent. Lawing said that he has more straight line speed than JD Clowney. Let that sink in. Alfy Hill hasn't even enrolled yet and while he will be in the 2 deep, Sutton is the likely starter. Our rabbit package will be hellacious with Sutton, Clowney, English, Hill. Ridiculous pass rushing talent. Hill will be a good one for us as well but I'm going to wait until he's actually in a carolina uniform to proclaim him as the next big thing.

English is too tall and skinny to play LB. Perfect for DE once he puts on a few more LBs though.

LMAO "total lack of respect".. really? Good lord. We are lucky to have him here, amps up our DE talent level and depth greatly (a position we NEEDED to get more talent at post Clown). It's a total lack of respect to ignore a player who has as much talent as anyone on our D outside the obvious.

IMO Sutton is the second best DE on the team NOW... DT was better.
BUT, Sutton is more suited for Clowney's position...There is an unknown with Sutton starting as well.

Alfy is talented but let's wait until he goes through fall practice to say he deserves to start over sutton
