Marcus Smith brings that versatility doe. Who knows why they do as they do? Graham was playing the Left side last year as well

I guess they figure if Trent went down, Barwin could go over there since he's the vet and Smith could step up. Or if Barwin went down Smith could step up the same way on that side.

Primarily doing it just so Marcus doesn't have too much in his plate year 1, and can just focus on one spot.

I think it's also because they want him to learn all the non-pass rushing stuff from Barwin, because he is more fundamentally sound at this point than Cole is in those areas. As far as the range of duties are concerned, the Jack and Predator positions are identical; both positions do the same things. The difference between them is the percentage of time the Predator is pass rushing vs the Jack. I think Smith has a lot more learning to do for the non-pass rushing duties, which is why they stuck him under Barwin. Once he gets those skills down, they'll probably shift him over to Cole's side to refine his pass rushing skills

The coaching staff has a plan and they obviously know a lot more than me, but the knock on Smith was that he was "only" a pass rusher. He didn't grade out well against the run or in coverage. I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. Just let him do what he does and help him refine that skill. The league passes like 70% of the time anyway. When Demarcus was in the 3-4, he rushed the passer 90-something percent of the time. That's what you do. You utilize the players best skill.

But like I said, I'm a couch coach. Hopefully the experts know what they're doing.

I'm curious where you are getting this from, because all I read months leading up to the draft was how he could cover and set the edge. Those things may need refining (so does his pass rushing cause he mainly just used speed), but they are definitely aren't things he can't do or excel at. An example of them being refined is in that article I posted it mentioned he mainly dropped back in college from a 3 point stance, so it's a little awkward dropping back as a LB.

Here is just one of the quotes about him showcasing his ability to drop back into coverage.

Quote:
But none of the potential tweeners of 4-3 college defensive ends at the Senior Bowl was more convincing in their ability to drop back into pass coverage than Marcus Smith of Louisville. Whether he was step-for-step down the seam 20 yards downfield with a tight end or sliding out into the flats to cover a running back on a swing pass, Smith showed the best agility among outside LB converts in his change of direction and play recognition.



Chip Kelly said:
Quote:
He's played with his hand on the ground, he's played standing up. He can drop into coverage, he can rush the quarterback.


I don't think this Eagles regime would ever draft an OLB they didn't think could cover and do more than just rush the passer, especially in the first round.

Daryl Washington suspended for the year. I think he's Arizona's MVP on defense. We're catching some breaks with these injuries and suspensions. Everyone on our schedule is losing impact players.

Washington was one of my favorite draft picks a few years back. Feel bad for Zona.

Not me. We travel there after our bye. Everything up until week 11 when we travel to GB looks very winnable. Yes, I am aware I'm jumping the gun a bit here.

Shocked
For hitting his baby momma?

Also I believe it when I see it. He's probably going to have it reduced or delayed due to complaining

An 8 week suspension would be fine with me Laughing

He's gotten in trouble multiple times and was suspended for the first 4 games last year. I think the year-long ban will stick.

Looks like he wasn't punished for the baby momma incident.

Quote:
FOX Sports 910 in Arizona first had the report, and it's now confirmed. The NFL announced this suspension is specifically for substance abuse violations and "unrelated to Washington’s recent plea bargain for an assault charge," which perhaps explains why the announcement was "at least" a year. (He could face further discipline.)


So, he was suspended for 4 games last year for violating the substance abuse policy. Now he did it again and he still hasn't been punished for the most recent domestic violence incident. The report is that he'll be suspended for at least a year.

And now Will Hill has been suspended for 6 games. Guess who we play in week 6 Laughing

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6496/will-hill

Quote:
The Giants "may not welcome back" S Will Hill after his six-game suspension.
Hill has been suspended three times since entering the league in 2012. The New York Post's Paul Schwartz believes "it's almost definite" this third strike will be his last one with the Giants. Hill is an impact safety when on the field and could provide a starting option as soon as Week 7 if the Giants decide to keep him. Stevie Brown is set to replace Hill at free safety opposite Antrel Rolle

Marcus Smith is actually pretty good in coverage. I am not surprised Smith is learning Barwin's spot first. Graham isn't much in coverage but he can go forward pretty well so it makes sense that he would backup Cole and Smith would backup Barwin.
