    i was just thinking, with our crowded backfield and young talent at wide out, why not try addai at outside linebacker, he is tough as we know that from starting at fullback his frosh year, if he could add a few pounds he could be exactly like eric alexander at outside, imagine 6-1 230 running at u at 4.4 speed man could we blitz him off the corner, what do yall think?

    i dunno about that, he hasn't played defense, and we NEED to get the ball in his hands.

    Well.....we do have LBs to play LB. I know he played QB so he may have never played D in his life.

    i know he is a weapon, but i dont want a man of his size speed and agility dug in behind JV alley and edwards, he ll touch the ball 20 times all year if that happens, i say if he is 4th on the depth chart after spring, maybe we should try him at outside linebacker, i know he has delivered some big time hits against opponets playing special teams and full back, and saban is known for having a knack at what players best position are

    If he switches to anything it'll be WR. He catches the ball well and we all know he can run after the catch so it seems like a logical choice to me.

    Of course, I'm not Coach Saban or Coach Fisher and that's why they pay me to keep my yapper shut...

    He's talented enough to play anywhere, though.

    has he ever played D before? as long as we are bulking him up, i bet he would make a decent TE

    they pay you to keep your yapper shut? thats a weird sounding job but i would love to have a career in yapper-shutting.

    Remember a certain wide receiver Devery Henderson? He was a mediocre running back starting out and really excelled at wide receiver. Saban knows what’s best and will use his talent somewhere, bet on that. I remember at VT two years ago he caught everything that came his way. He is a hell of an athlete, lets be glad we have to worry about where all this talent is to be placed rather than not having it at all.

    In Saban We Trust

    yea but we are DEEP at TE, david jones (future all sec) Keith Zinger, high school all american kory hebert, i mean we have talent at tight end, i dont feel comfortable at outside linebacker, because eric alexander was so big for us last year, he was all over the field with his speed to go from sideline to sideline, i remember watching the SC game and listening to it, eric was in on every play, he blitzed and made BIG PLAYS, hopefully our recruiting from the past few years will pay off (which it will) and another stud steps up the production even more from alexander from last year
