    OLB Jeremiah Attaochu

    This guy might be flying under the radar a bit- can set the edge, read and react, has the strength to engage OT's at the LOS and shed, nearly ideal size, has a burst, good functional strength and he's the all time sack leader at Georgia Tech. Tailor made for a 3/4, but us running a 4/3 doesn't stop me from wanting OLBs who can pass rush:

    Struggled to keep himself clean at contact. Looked like a fish out of water at the Senior Bowl when asked to played off the line of scrimmage as a traditional strong-side linebacker in a 4-3 alignment. Fiery player with a violent temperament, but needs to keep his wits on the field and control his intensity. Doesn?t always appear to have a plan and will bite hard on play-fakes and get grabby in coverage..

    Someone you might be able to develop as a 4-3 OLB, but I think a 3-4 team will take him before the value is right for a 4-3 team.

    The point of the op is that he's an interesting OLB who imo is flying a bit under the radar, not that he's necessarily the best fit for us. If the Dolphins are looking for an OLB who can set the edge, is fantastic in space, can cover big and fast TEs with his fantastic size, cover RBs in the flat and be a true gem as a pass rusher with a phenomenal burst when off the line and not nose to nose with OTs, that player is already on the roster.

    miami needs to look for personnel that fit the scheme...not try and make guys into something they are not...enough with the bull**** square pegs round holes...and thats probably the first time i've heard olbs that set the edge in a 43...

    we'd waste a pick on this ga tech guy...miscast...although we have been pretty good at wasting picks of late

    So Misi doesn't set the edge? Hardly. As to OLBs, if I had my choice I'd draft Kyle Van Noy over all including Shazier, but imo Attaochu would bring some aggressiveness and pass rush to the position, certainly as compared to Wheeler. Attaochu's ability to place in space is a legitimate concern. The solution imo is Jordan replacing Wheeler at WOLB, regardless of Jordan's best fit being 3/4 OLB.
