    Just thought I'd throw this out there. I have been looking at alot of outside linebackers and really haven't been able to come to any conclusion as to who is the best OLB in coverage. I always hear this guy is good against the run.......that guy is great in space........this guy is the best at rushing the QB. I would just like everyones opinion, on who can cover the best.....while still getting the job done elsewhere if ya know what I mean. I have a few guys in mind but would like to hear what everyone else thinks??????

    Hands down it's A.J. Edds from Iowa. The guy had 5 total interceptions this past season and 7 career into's.

    I don't see Edds as an 3-4 OLB, but rather as an ILB.

    I have to say I don't know who's the best cover guy...

    Either way I'd rather have him playing zone for us than the other AJ on this team.

    For sure.

    I don't see AJ as such a liability as you do, but he's not a strenght.

    He probably would not play the run as well as Hawk though in my opinion
