So I don't see Sheard fitting in. He's either going to be asked to get bigger to play 3-4 end, or he's going to be a situational pass rusher and not on the field except in passing situaitons.

Why can't he be asked to get smaller and play OLB?  Kinda a silly bit of logic to only assume that a 34 OLB/DE Tweener can only go one direction.  Didn't Jamir Miller go from 34 OLB under Romeo to 43 DE under Fazio?  Sheared would just be going the other way. 

I'm not saying that Sheared is a right fit and would still draft a pure 34 OLB who can get at the passer and provide good zone coverage but I don't see why you'd limit him.
I wonder what his real weight is. I've seen it at 255, 260 and 264. I suspect its more like 270 now.  I suppose you can get him to drop down to the 255 lb range. He's got the athleticism. His 40 time was 4.69  and his vertical leap was 31 inches. WHich puts him about the middle of the 2012 OLB numbers at the combine.

But I don't believe he's played LB of any type in college so he would be pretty lost out there if asked to cover.


No no. It's January & the reboot is in start up so Sheard will seemlessly transition. Until September whe he looks like Rahim Abdullah....
