Is Kareem Martin a linebacker?

giantstock : 4/12/2018 11:48 pm
Everything I read that he is. Even DG made mention when they signed him - he was impressed how covers tight ends.

Isn't this just as crucial as getting another OLinemen? I'd take the OL first -- but right after the 2nd rd, we should be hoping a DL falls or at worst trade down in rd 3 if value is bad for early pick.

Here are my top 3 but not neccessarily in 3rd round. Though round 5 pick is just a bench player.

Tim Settle 1st of our picks in Rd 3.

BJ Hill 4th round? Or maybe 2nd pick of 3rd round?

Folorunso Fatukasi - 5th round.
Yes

I've seen mocks having Giants going after linebackers. Or an early rd selection LB yet not going after a DL.

Also when discussions come up as to getting a fa in the past several people would say someone such as HAnkins for example -- wouldn't start. I realize Hankins is too expensive.

Heck- even "ourlads" called Martin a DE.

I hope all this doesn't mean that they draft Chubb. If they do they better not go with a 3-4.

Is JPP a linebacker in this defense?

He was converted to LB by the coach we hired to run our defense. Yes, he is a linebacker. And that coach just waxed poetic about how much he has improved at that position last year.

seriously?
Pick 7 starters and stop worrying about whether they are DEs, LBs or  
Ivan15 : 4/13/2018 8:44 am : link
DTs.

Then figure out who is backing up whom.
Martin is a good player

Stuck behind talented guys in Arizona but he played well when given the time. I really love this signing
Martin

Is a prime example of many of our FAís we signed players most of us have never heard of before.

Yes, but he'll get stiff competition from Bernard Holsey.

Why?

If you hear a player is more suited for a 3-4 vs a 4-3 - wouldn't you want to draft - if available- to a player's strengths?
as was said  
msh : 4/14/2018 5:14 am : link
arizone drafted him as a DE and our current DC converted him to OLB he will be the hybrid DE/OLB in bettchers system where they line up showing 4 man front then martin drops back into OLB and confuses the blocking scheme on the OL

they really do need to add a full time pass rushing 3-4 DE to make that work thou they have snacks who can be the NT and tomlinson to be the DT and martin is the other 4-3 DE when they go 4-3 but they dont have the 3-4 DE on the other side and JPP was let go because he didnt suit that role (and was costing too much cap space)
I see it as almost a 5-0-6

With

2x OLB/DL blend players

And

2x ILB/S blend players

(3x varied DTs)

( 2 corners and 2 safeties)

Opposing 3 or 4 wrs you can -1 DT and -1 Lb of either type depending on other factors to ++ up to 2 additional cover corners

JFC, the 5-0-6 crap again?
Wait for it to play out

It's partly way way to get people to stop continually trotting out rote 3/4 shit in these convos.

Just because you've decided to start referring to OLBs as DEs and ILBs as safeties doesn't make your ridiculous 5-0-6 assertion valid, it's just contrarian nomenclature.
