It involves Jason Taylor the Dolphins Pro Bowl DE. It looks like the Dolphins are considering trying him at OLB much like some Fans have talked about doing with SMITH here. He doesn't seem to keen on that? If he were to be available and or moved, How would this effect Howard's Market Value?

Taylor is an example of a pass rusher, plain and simple. Like KGB and Ugunleye. Run stopping is optional. Howard does both. Taylor can play an OLB in a 3-4 like Terrell Suggs, but not in a 4-3. I don\'t think this effects Howard\'s value at all.

On moving Will Smith to OLB, he is 282 lbs, Taylor is 255. If we had Taylor, i\'d say yes, but not for Will, no matter how much he \"experimented\" there for a few plays in college. We need him where he is.
