If Kamp does get moved to OLB, don't expect him in coverage unless it is a zone blitz drop back. He is not going to be able to cover TE/RB. He will basically always be a rusher. That is what he does best, and unless it is to create confusion, he will continue to do that.

I really do not see him moving to OLB. IMO he will be much more valuable as DE. Kamp has worked extremely hard to get and keep his weight in the 260 range. He was 280+ coming out of college. I think it would make more sense to let him bulk up some and bounce around the Dline with Jenkins.

Okay.. lets recap a little here.

Tony Brackens, a pass rushing DE, moved to OLB to get him more opportunities from even more of an outside angle.. but used in coverage in short zone drops. 260, good lateral speed, but no one would mistake him for a fluid linebacker.

Sound like someone familiar?

How many times do you see Ware or Merriman dropping into coverage.. Not very freaking often.

They are basically stand up DE, rushing from more of a outside angle and using their speed and power on the outer shoulder of a tackle.. if you as an offense make a mistake of trying to block them with a TE or back you are toast.

That is the role I am guessing.. but don't mistake that I think you will see Kampy also dropping inside and putting his hand down in known passing situation or rotated in during the game.

BTW.. how many outside running plays do you think you would see to Kampman's side in a 3-4? Guards and Tackles would have a hard time reaching out and effectively blocking him and FB and TE wouldn't have much luck against the more stout Kampman.

Call it a hunch.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I'm guessing Kampman will be the LOLB. If he is asked to cover it will be in a zone and all he does is play it smart. You don't have to be the best cover person for zone.

And Kampman did try to cover Jason Whitten on one play last year and while he didn't do great it was Jason Whitten, one of the better TE in the NFL. And that was Kampman trying to jam Whitten at the line and then try to get up with him. At LB he'll already be back in space.

Capes will pull the scissors and shuffle Kampman to the outside....often.

Kamp in my eyes IS mobile enough to play OLB.

If Kampman drops into coverage that means we are likely coming with a 3 man rush, which I HATE. Drop him into a zone now and then and I'm cool with that.

I think they could fake a blitz from Kampman and blitz two other LBers and then be man on man with everyone but the SS helping out Kampman.


FYI I'm not saying do that often. Once in a blue moon to catch the offense off guard.

True, Even just dropping Kampman into coverage and blitzing from elsewhere could cause confusion because they can't find the one on one match up Kampman is on, maybe they throw it into his zone out of panic. Get him dropping back or just out towards the flat.

I've been saying for a bit now that I believe Aaron Kampman will start at OLB in the 3-4 base defense, but I think Dom Capers will move him around and use him in several ways. At times I think he could blitz from the inside backer and at times he could rush as a DE. It all depends on the down, distance, and what type of situation the opponent is in.

You all remember the denver game last year when he was runnin all over the place running down wideouts on the flat and rb's kampy is coachable and that will translatge in most cases into a positive
I am therefor I think.
