He could be a star at LB. Excited to see him.

Smart move. LB is very thin. No chance he can start at RB any time soon (hopefully). He's already built like an NFL ILB with wheels. Thinking ahead, LB at the next level is a more valuable prospect than RB. RB's last what? 3-7 years and you lead the league this year... they won't pay you the big dollars next year because of the "wear" from the previous year.

LOL classic Miles White: Coach can I see the field faster at LB? Miles: That may be true.

One quick look at NFL career expectancy for RB vs. LB would be all I needed to see.

he'd have to slim down 10-15lb in order to play running back, not a quick process

"he'd have to slim down 10-15lb in order to play running back" He needs to slim down 10-15# regardless. He was carrying a little "extra" weight this past football season.

This is awesome. Players willing to go play outside their preferred position ate very valuable and make the team better. I bet he's a beast in conditioning.

"I bet he's a beast in conditioning." Not yet, but I bet he will be shortly.

Smart move by Devin. Much better chance of playing on Sundays with his size.
