 Good question… And the answer can be both. But even by playing the position in high school you can still have that four more years of developing division. Vision can be the great equalizer for linebacker Good or great vision is what makes a linebacker look instinctual. Where a guy who may not have the raw athleticism gets the job done because he sees it and can react faster.

Comment 25 Jul 2019

The most important characteristic traits or ability for a linebacker is vision! That is why to use as an example Zach Boren was able to switch to middle linebacker after not playing it since high school. She could see it.

 If you look at all the great linebackers Ohio State or elsewhere I’d be willing to wager more often than not they played running back in high school as well. 

Harrison played QB, I believe. 

Baker and Lee played QB and RB

Perry played QB and RB

Kwon played RB

I have said it numerous times, if I was in Browning’s shoes, I would ask for a redshirt year to learn how to play defensive end  for Larry Johnson.  And then laugh all the way to the bank when I’m drafted as a defensive end

Heacock used to say “go through their throat”

Fickell used to say “It’s 11 on 11, somebody has got to whip someone’s ass”

Mattison calls it “knock back”

The message is the same...the DL must WIN UP FRONT...and win by DESTROYING The Blocking Scheme

”That way the LBs can play their game”

If you are trying to establish the relationships with your local coaches pushing out their players committed or already on your roster is never good for business.I do not believe that the new coaching staff has the “credibility” to push out current cimmits, at least from the state of Ohio or schools that they have a long standing relationship with.

The installation of exotic scheme took a backseat this spring to emphasis of development of fundamentals. 

The scheme, especially for the front, is almost little league in simplicity. 

For example, in Over front, if the A-Gap is open, the Mike has to fill it. 

Thats it. 

Now Coach Washibgton gets spends all practice on stance, start, redirect and block destruction.

Re. Browning...if I was in his spot...Id ask to redshirt and move to DE...and then get rich in about 3 years 

that is not a knock...but rather a piggy back on those who say he should be on the outside..lhe should be...but with his hand in the dirt. 

Comment 21 Apr 2019

a few of my own...

T. Mitchell is a Manimal or Manster or whatever they called him

He is not very fundamentally (yet) sound a little (a lot) out of control at times but he is 100% going to try and rock somebody every single play Guard, H-Back, Quality Control Coach, somebody is getting wrecked 

Defensive Tackles...

Landers, Hamilton, Tommy T, Vincent, Cronell, Haskell...doesn't matter...they can all GO....rotate like crazy and bring them in waves...it would be nice if Jackson makes a push 

Arnette looks like he has really stepped his game up...

Proctor is a natural at Center Field...but I would guess what is holding him back is attention to detail 

Harrison is smooth at LB...dude is just going out and playing ball now..

Chase Young...he gone after this season...Cooper looks real good too...after that...???? 

I know everybody, and understandable so can't wait to see Zach Harrison...but I think that is actually the best course of action...he is so RAW and his upside is Bosa-ish...BUT...he is nowhere near as polished as they were coming out of high school....dude needs TIME to learn how to play DE...Noah Potter on the other hand looks ready to play now...very fundamentally sound...
