With all the talk lately from insiders and draft gurus that Everett Brown is a 3-4 OLB only, it was refreshing to hear that Mel Kiper believes Brown is strong enough to play DE in a 4-3. Now I’m not saying that Kiper knows better than some NFL scouts I’ve heard from, but he certainly does his homework.
The only thing is can he handle playing on the left side where the tight end usually resides and you have to hold the point of attack more often?
Kiper also sees Penn State’s Aaron Maybin as versatile enough to play DE or OLB in a 4-3. He said so in an ESPN media conference call. I’ll have more on this Thursday on the home page.
