I will feel sorry if this move don't work out for him. I thought he was the wrong pick when we drafted him but after watching him he could be an all pro ILB in a 3-4 D.

Stephone is a smart dude but let's be honest, he was thrown into the fire with a LOT of responsibility (and not a lot of help) from DAY 1. Having JL at the MIKE should help him tremendously & it could aide his vision/taking on defenders at the point of attack. With his natural athleticism, he may be way more active behind the line of scrimmage.

Long term, I think SA will regain his position and play lights out for years to come in the middle .

I think my dislike for the pick was more of his horn being tooted. Tape I saw of him(college) he wasn't all he was made out to be. I still believe he's to slow to cover that much space as he was ask in the 4-3 MLB position or the insticts there either. But what I did see was a tackling machine and pops with good authority. Moving to OLB might be his best bet in a 4-3? But I see him more of a 3-4 stud ILB that in time possibly could be great.
