I believe the team is planning on having Barnett and Morrison start as our OLBs. No doubt we need to find their replacements soon. But looking around the league, it's difficult to pin down what a prototypical 43 OLB is nowadays.
When I looked at the Pro-Bowl roster from 2011, most of the OLBs are from the 34 (Suggs, Wake, Phillips, Ware, and Orakpo). They are all basically DEs in the 43. The only 43 OLB named was Beason.
So my questions to you Linebacker experts are:
What are we looking for in a 43 OLB?
Who are the current examples in the NFL?
Which draft prospects look like they will be 43 OLBs?
