You'll see come September when they start playing for real where Barwin lines up at. And I would elaborate further on alignment vs. scheme, but you probably think Jack Ham and Lawrence Taylor had the role in their defenses just because they were both listed as Outside Linebackers. People often speculate when they speak. If Connor lines up as a LB'er and is listed on the depth chart as a LB'er, then he is a LB'er no matter what his responsibilities are. Just as LT and Ham were LB'ers. At this moment in time, Connor is a LB'er. His responsibilities might include rushing the passer, but he's a LB'er. If you take the time to watch a little film, you will see that in the 4/3 scheme he dropped a lot more in coverage than he did in Texas where he rushed more---usually from the WILL. You seem to be laboring under the misunderstanding that if someone is a great pass rusher, he no longer has a designated position--like OLB or DE. That is misinformed. JJ Watt is a great pass rusher, and he lines up all over the place, but he is still a DE. Demeco would be a great addition. Anyone know if he has cleared waivers?
