OK I will start this, I am not a coach

But I just do not understand the thinking of the Staff in addressing some of the problems from last year's D. We were not able to set the edge at all on Defense last year because our OLBs were not cut out to play the 3-4 OLB position that is a tweener between a DE and an 4-3 OLB. They were too small to hold up blocks and keep RBs from bouncing outside. Second is how does moving arguably our best cover corner to safety he had to bulk up to play that position. To me from looking at things it seemed moving Harris to safety, who IMHO was a serviceable CB but had a big frame, would be a plus cover safety with the size to cover TEs and inside receivers. Freeing Blanding to help reinforce the edges.
