He's gonna be there I'm tellin' ya. Somethin' was once said about a camera, a goat and Benson. I ain't wishing it, just predicting but if I'm right I'm gonna start believing those rumors.

I'd give Romeus one more year to see if he can stay healthy. If he can, he's no doubt a OLB in a 3-4.

Well, PFW's draft profile listed Romeus as having:

Outstanding body-length and size, long arms, large hands, a thick trunk, and good musculature. He has a strong bull rush and can walk his man into the backfield.

To me, that spells a 3-4 DE, but it remains to be seen if he can remain healthy and what the past two injuries have done to his level of play in general - he might not be the player he once was for the Pitt even if he has fully rehabbed and is able to stay healthy in order to be on the active roster. Also, the DE position should fit him better than the OLB because it shouldn't be as hard on the knees as the edge rushing OLB position.

IMO, he's a better OLB, but I'm no "expert" like the guys on PFW. So I guess only time will tell. I not counting on him staying healthy anyway. Im drooling over having Tez on one side and Ziggy Ansah on the other side. Please let this happen, lol.

Big arms are a huge plus for a 3-4 DE, because they allow them to engage more than one O-lineman at a time freeing up lanes for the OLBs to get to the passer, but I don't know either where Romeus would fit the best. I just don't know if he has the coverage skills needed to be an OLB and/or if his knees will allow him to keep up with receivers when needed to?!

Eh, 267 lbs is a bit light for a 3-4 DE. Those guys run more in the 280-300 range. In 4-3 schemes, they're DT's.

Not that he CAN'T play DE in a 3-4, but at his current weight, I would say OLB.

The funny part about this is I was lobbying for Romeus to replace Vilma in a 4-3 as a DE for the past 2 seasons. I think he could come in and help in a 3-4 as a DE but I don't think he would hold up as an OLB coming off back to back season ending injuries. " We haven't seen him play a down we don't know what he is capable of.....

Chamberlain is the exact same way!!!!

Naturally, but that is something that he can change if need be, it's impossible to change physical traits like long hands and and big arms, but not how much you weigh.

At the moment he would be underweight for a 3-4 DE position, but he has the frame to support more mass - it's just a matter of whether or not his back and knees could really support that added weight without any problems.

Oh, and we really still don't know what his current health situation is or if he can even be a productive player after sitting out two years away from the game, so it's all just speculation at this point and he'd be a depth guy at best.

I hope Romeus will be able to play this season, he needs to talk to AP's doctor.

He reminds me on Ninkovich. We can't keep him on our roster for several years hoping he heals up and plays, but just our luck in two more years he'll be playing great for someone else.
