i think we all have learned: playing inside linebacker takes a unique or not easily learned skill set -- so many things happening at once from different directions.Collins was not a middle LB in college. He played OLB in a 3-3. He was off-ball, but he was still outside. More similar to an OLB in a 4-3 than an ILB in any scheme.
In my experience, playing one half of the field is very different than having to cross the C. It is similar to the difficulty of having to play 360 degrees as an off-ball LB vs 180 degrees as a DE. Can be a very difficult transition and is not natural for many players.i think we all have learned: playing inside linebacker takes a unique or not easily learned skill set -- so many things happening at once from different directions.
I read somewhere that a lot of offensive football play design is about getting either the inside linebacker or the safety (or both) to take steps in the wrong direction.
Reddick, Simmons and Collins. Three drafts in five years where the team projected a player into a very hard to learn position.
Good to hear about the physical work he's putting inxc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media
I will agree , if it should turn out that we have the #1 pick , I want Caleb Williams , if we should get picks two and 5picks , build around Murray . I think Murray is a top ten QB , I just think Williams is a top five QB !. That is where I am here ! If you have an oppertunity you take it .Everyone is dumping on Murray like he sucks right now. I'd say he's actually underrated at this point.
