    Willie Offord at OLB?

    I was just over at Mr cheer or die's site and someone over there had mentioned that Offord may be able to make the switch to OLB in the Cover 2. Urlacher did it, Offord though? I have read that Childress has said a couple times that he "might" have someone in house that would work well. I guess I always assumed that he meant EJ or DT. The More I think about it, the more it seems possible anyway.

    What do you think?

    Thanks Lotza!

    Is Offord big enough to play LB?

    It would take some learning. Backer is a way different position than safety. Is he big enough though? I'm not sure on his size but I thought he only weighed like 215, that seems kind of small to me.

    I always thought Childress was talking about MLB when he said there was someone for the position on the roster.

    No way Offord could play OLB though, way too small. 6'1/215 is not LB size.

    I think those people at Cheer or Die are the same fans that yap over at KFAN, I think they're all on crack.

    Tank Williams will move to OLB before Offord. Williams is terrible in deep zone coverage while Offord is decent. Plus, Williams is 6'3" 230lbs, the size of the linebackers coming out of college.

    No, he is way too small. Why would you want to put him there anyway he has no experience at that position. I would much rather have EJ or Dontarrious Thomas keep playing there then try to get offord to play there where he would probably be just as good as them anyway.
