Bills sixth-round pick Arthur Moats spent the entire offseason at inside linebacker learning the ins and out of that position in the 3-4 scheme. But plans for Moats looks like they’re changing.
Moats for the second straight day lined up at OLB, which resembles a lot of the same responsibilities he had as a defensive end in college at James Madison. Head coach Chan Gailey indicated that there could be some plans for him on the defensive side of the ball in the near future.
“We’re working more with him at the outside position,” said Chan Gailey. “He’s a little more comfortable coming off the edge as opposed to playing inside, so we’re going to give him an opportunity to see what he can do out there.”
Whether Moats gets the chance to rush from the OLB position on Sunday remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he got 10-15 snaps knowing how much Gailey would like to jumpstart the pass rush. It’s all part of Gailey and his staff finding the right personnel combinations and they know they need more consistent pass pressure.
