Which defensive ends equipped to move to linebacker?


With so many teams playing the 3-4 defense these days, college defensive ends are often being asked to run some outside linebacker drills at their pro days.

Players such as Pittsburgh’s LaMarr Woodley and Washington’s Brian Orakpo have successfully made the transition in recent years. There are several candidates for such a move this year.

The prospect with the best chance to pull it off might be Texas’ Sergio Kindle.

Kindle’s the ideal conversion guy. About 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, he’s more athletic than his old (Texas) teammate Orakpo.
