On paper, yes. Seeing as how neither has seen much action in camp, especially JR who has never played OLB, and both are yet to play in any preseason games, I just can't pencil them in. Rufus, Martin, Atkins, and Thomas all flashed during the first preseason game. Smith could be penciled in by default simply due to his experience. I wouldn't be shocked if Rufus and Smith or Smith with Hawthorne open as "starters" at OLB with Lofton and Humber in the middle week one. Hopefully, JR and Wilson can get healthy. I'm excited about the young LB's though. First time in a long time I can say that.

Good dude. Hope we can keep him in a coaching capacity if he is done playing.

Smith will be lucky to be on the team come regular season.
