LSU defensive end Tashawn Bower will be lining up at outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Dave Aranda’s new 3-4 scheme, according to Ross Delleneger with The Advocate:
quote:

“I gained weight to play with my hand in the dirt, but this is fine,” he said after Thursday’s practice, the eighth of a 14-practice spring that ends with the April 16 spring game. “I can play with this weight.”

Bower, at about 250 pounds and standing 6-foot-5, is one of the largest outside linebackers you’ll see. The ex-defensive end is an example of what Aranda is bringing to the program — a think-outside-the-box approach that has LSU players shifting positions this spring.
Bower, a senior from New Jersey, has played defensive end since he arrived at LSU.

Bower is a pretty agile dude. I believe he was a very good good high school basketball player. I think he'll be ok.
