Oh, and as intriguing as it would be to switch to a 3-4, we have spent years drafting the personnel for a 4-3 With our depth at DT and prospects at DE, combined with the fact that we only have 2 starting linebackers on our team, a switch to 3-4 seems foolish, unless we trade some of our 4-3 talent away and get some players like Daryl Washington from the Cardinals. I feel like our trades and moves need to be focused on shoring up safety, rather than trying to create a need at LB and fill it.

He tackles with leverage, and he meets the runner in the backfield. I don't know what more you want out of him, but you won't get that much out of most of our LB's.
Oh, and also to say "he's to small" is ignorant. While i agree that being tall and huge can be helpful, you can play way above your size, as Dawkins showed us.
If Dawkins were drafted today, you'd all side with Howie and say "he's too small". If you watch Rolle, he was a game time player, and if he gets a chance in pittsburgh, he'll prove all you naysayers wrong. I just wish he were proving you wrong while in eagles' green

Keep Kendricks and Ryans at this point, all others are expendable
