i was thinking something like this today but was on the lines of if we lose lofton is there anyone that could move to mlb and pick him or some of the other talent at olb cause there more talented olb free agents then mlb free agents this year but if ts not alot to sign them.

Yes - Lawson was great for the Bengals last year. He can play in a 3-4 or 4-3, he's good in coverage, I suppose it helps when you have 4.4 speed, and he can rush the passer.

He's played under Nolan and he's played opposite Mario Williams in college wink.png

I think Nic is good enough where he is and Lawson would probably come a little more expensive. Not that I don't like him, but we have waaaaay bigger needs than to upgrade somewhat marginally at a position that's already adequately manned.

100% understand what you mean but you cant coach speed and that what our team lack and the same reason why we keep hearing he almost got to the qb.there is some good speed at olb does this mean a better player not always but there some guys with speed at olb that i feel we can get cheap like Manny Lawson,Rocky McIntosh,Wesley Woodyard, Brandon Johnson,and Ernie Sims. i know this is off the subject but i also feel ted ginn could come in and feel the role and upgrade over weems and douglas.

We actually have pretty good team speed on defense. Offense, on the other hand, outside of Julio and HD, there is not much speed. Just don't think OLB is a concern right now and with Nolan utilizing more, different blitz packages, you may not necessarily need a good pass rusher from the second level because it will be all about confusing the other team.

I liked Manny at N.C. State, but he only had one year where he had any kind of impact in San Fran. That being said, If we didn't get a top DE like Mario Williams, I would look to bring in Manny and somebody else to give me some type of pass rush.

He was the Robert Mathis of NC State when Williams was the Freeney, but both are much bigger. I wouldn't mind the pick up.

if we lose abe and Lofton outside of spoon where is the speed Nicholas is ok but dont have the speed to get to the qb Sidbury and Adkins are unproven even doe i realy would like to see what sidbury could do with more snaps.
