Who would you prefer at olb? Bowman is a 4-3 olb and kindle is more of a 4-3 end 3-4 olb so who would be a better pass rusher?

Sergio Kindle. Kindle is about 20lbs bigger than Bowman and will hold up better, IMO, on the edge in the run game.

I like Kindle and I know it's not a popular thing to say but I think he is the best DE/OLB in the draft. I think he is a SOLB and has the ability to drop into coverage and move sideline to sideline and can be explosive in his pass rush.

I have to admit I have only seen 4 Texas games this year. I cannot give my endorsement for Kindle. My biggest problem with him is that once someone locks in on him he's a non-factor. He's got some good awareness for the pass rush and could be decent in coverage, he's got great size. I could see him averaging about 4 sacks a year but if teams decide to run right at him he's in trouble, which he shouldn't be for a guy his size. To be honest the guy I'm most impressed with from Texas is Lamarr Houston, I think he's going to be a pretty solid player in the NFL, maybe not Pro Bowler, but just a good player.

i don't like either one for our defense, personally. i see bowman as a 4-3 OLB all the way. kindle would be the better fit for our defense - but he flat out disappeared against some pretty mediocre teams last year. i wouldn't touch kindle until the 3rd round myself.

I'd take Kindle in the 3rd round. He could play either side but his lack of production worries me. He's the exact opposite of Von Miller. And Bowman would be useless for our team. So I guess Kindle but only by default at this point.

Kindle is a project. He's not yet a good pass rusher. If he's there in the 3rd, and there isn't a better value available, I wouldn't mind looking his way. But, I think a team will over draft him because of the combine numbers he'll put up. I see him going in the late 1st or early 2nd. He might not even be there when we draft in the 2nd.

If Brandon Graham is there in the 2nd, I think he's our guy - depending on what we do in RD 1 of course.

He is a very good pass rusher, the problem with Kindle is that he is not very good against the run.

The best OLB/DE in the drasft IMO is Brandon Graham.. he is a beast both against the run and the pass.. I have some vids I will post here shortly.
