OLB. This is his natural position. But we do need to have him rush often instead of just bringing 4 guys like we always do. He would make an excellent NFL OLB and unlike the rest of our linebackers wouldn't be a liability in coverage. Been saying this forever.

OLB is definitely not his natural position.

I'm assuming you're thinking his speed would translate into being a good cover guy. If that's the case I disagree.

Injury or not, Beasley is doing okay but needs the following IMO:

1. More strength. He needs to get stronger to throw guys off better

2. Use his hands better. He is not nearly violent enough.

3. Get some help on the line. Right now, he is getting no help inside so teams don't have to choose their poison.

4. Stop pussyfooting around and get after it like they hit your momma.

Things he doesn't need to do:

1. Move to another position. He is a hybrid DE/LB. He is mostly a dedicated rushing LB.

2. Gain weight. I don't know what he weighs but 5-10 lbs isn't going to make him win more often and getting into the 270-280 range where weight becomes physically more useful against 300+ lb men, probably slows him down significantly. (see #1 & 2 in what he needs to do)
