But, admitting I was wrong here, he couldn't (without losing his speed that is). His ideal playing weight seems to be about 245-250 and that is too small 99% of the time to stand up in the run game as a base 4-3 DE. I wish it wasn't so but he's a misfit for our D scheme. He needs to be a 3-4 rushbacker and simply isn't effective with a hand down on the line.
