He doesn't look as big with his gear on. And I really hope they don't make the mistake of lining him up as a LB. Why do the redskins always do this? I guess their front office never played that blocks game in kindergarten. The game where you have to fit the square block , round block , triangle block, etc. in its corresponding hole.

Our FO learns from their mistakes. With Jason Taylor we moved an OLB to DE and it failed miserably. This time we're moving a DE to OLB. It's the opposite so it should work.
