    Wade Philips is either a genius or a madman, NFL.com is reporting that he is moving Mario to weak side OLB, considering he is 6'7" and all of 290 pounds, and they did draft Brooks Reed, which is who you would think take that position, this could either be the making of a new breed of 3-4 Defense, or the worst DL move in history.
    I have a feeling he wont be doing much dropping into coverage, but could a guy that big really succeed at OLB?

    Peter king commented on this in todays MMQB saying Mario Williams has averaged 9.5 sacks a year and this isnt as crazy as it sounds. medium risk high reward.
