Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what they would think of Upshaws ability to play in a 4-3, if our new coaching staff was to choose to go with this defense instead of our current 3-4.

He is a very bulky guy...maybe can play outside thumper type lb,but more of a pass rusher than anything.reminds me of terrell suggs

He'd probably play DE at the pro level in a 4-3 defense. However, in some games when Alabama went to a nickel/ 3-3-5 defense he was playing OLB still, so maybe he could be used as a Von Miller type of LB in the 4-3.

He'll be a Patriot, IMO.

If he somehow falls that low and they don't draft him it'll be a crime against humanity.

The Saints. I think that would be at the 27th or 28th spot.

Yeah, he probably won't fall that far.

hmmm...i'm not seeing 43 de with him unless its going to an undersized front look...too short imo for most schemes...to me he's more a 34 olb fit but i have reservations about him as a pass rusher

this isn't that uber talent thats just raw that you draft on upside with a top 10 pick...as such i think he's on the board longer than many think...outside the top 10
