    I am presuming Lance Briggs would move to an inside linebacker in a 3-4. Anybody believe he would be OLB in a 3-4 and do you think Bostic could be an ILB in a 3-4.

    Bostic showed us that he is not very good on the inside in a 4-3, so I would assume that he is not magically goin to be better because of scheme change.

    Briggs has played well his whole career as a WLB on the outside, but a OLB in a 3-4 is asked to rush the passer and cover. I think he would better off as a ILB in the 3-4, but I think he could be either.

    We are weak on the ILB area in either a 4-3 or 3-4 setup. I would think Briggs plays an ILB position in 3-4 formations.

    SEEMS ILB IN A 3-4 HAS LESS FIELD TO COVER SINCE THERE ARE 2 OF THEM SO THAT IS WHY I HAVE QUESTION WITH BOSTIC PLAYING ILB IN 3-4
