JJT of DMN tells us that Akin Ayodele's adjustment to moving from 4-3 OLB to 3-4 ILB will hold the key to our defense this season. So far in camp, he's making good prgress.
"I've had to spend a lot of time studying film and understanding what my keys are on certain plays because one false step and it's over - I'm out of the play. The key, for me, is getting a good pre-snap read."
Obviously Ayodele will also have to fight off 300 pound plus offensive guards as well, something he never had to do playing a 4-3 OLB.
In Grizz's analysis of our defense, he's not quite sure where Marcus Coleman stands since he's been working with the 3rd team a lot. Well, Calvin Watkins of DMN seems to know the answer.
For Coleman, it's no big deal not getting plenty of reps or playing multiple positions because he's done it throughout his career.
"Marcus is a veteran player, so I feel I can mess with Marcus the way I want to," Parcells said. "I can put him at corner some, put him at safety some, and I don't think he's going to be all uptight about any of that."
I guess Parcells knows what Coleman can do and is letting other guys take some reps. I take it from this article he's pretty much a lock to make the team. What do you guys think?
