Why’s that?

Has there been a successful 6’7 outside linebacker?

I like Davenport but I still prefer Harold Landry to Davenport IMO.

I'm always skeptical about players that play against low grade talent and amass big stats. Then everybody ohhhhs and ahhhhhhs over what exactly? But it looks good on YouTube.

Why did no major program pick him up?

I saw him projected to be a DE in a 4-3 (I think). Why a terrible fit for as an OLB for us though?

Unless you are going to bulk him up to play end, he's probably too tall to play OLB. There aren't many (any?) 6'7 outside linebackers. He's gotta be able to cover, turn his hips and run, use his arms right...Same reason you don't see many guards over 6'5, sometimes all that length works against you.

Didn’t Mario Williams play some OLB?

I want an elite pass rush, I don't care how it happens. Fangio is a freaking wizard with coverages on the back end... if you can get him pressure with 4 rushers, it's game over for the offense.

Find someone who looks at you the way G08 looks at situational pass rushers
