I really like the idea of putting Wilson inside. That gives you a ton of options in regards to blitzing and that's where he played in college.
I kind of agree because I'd like to see more speed at that spot. But I think Wilson would have a hard time stopping the run.
let him rush the passer from the outside and maybe like you said... blitz him from the middle every once in awhile.
Hawthorne was a solid player in Seattle and I think he had some legitimate reasons as to why he never got going last year. He might not be the fastest guy but he's a hitter.
it really was a circus at linebacker last year. Joe Vitt was gone for half the year and the early injuries to Chamberlain, Hawthorne, and Vilma certainly didn't help.
I doubt we'd have that kind of tough luck at the same position two years in a row, injury wise.
