I disagree. Lebeaus defense needs two very athletic inside linebackers to really make it function. You can convert outside guys that are low draft picks because they really only have one function (should say primary function) and that is getting after the qb. The guys in the middle need to be able to get after the qb, go sideline to sideline to chase backs, and drop into coverage in the middle of the field. I'd also prefer to keep Troy, and any other safety, OUT of the box and let him be MORE effective because he doesn't have to cover for any poor linebacker play. Course, it's a moot point now that Troy is in the back half of his career.
