no way, gibson is a converted DE. He has ridiculous speed and he put up something like 33 reps at 225....however hes on the smaller side with only like 240 pounds behind him. hes an incredible athlete though and very powerful and smooth. i would imagine hes gonna need time before hes any good against the run besides like tackle for losses because a guard could easily blow his **** up. harrison however is the best LB against the run that ive personally ever seen, hes strong as an ox and can just take on guards like its no big deal AND hes a pretty good, not great pass rusher.
timmons is a tremendous pass rusher but hes weak against the run, he would be better off switching with harrison.
woodley can be franchised tag, then it gives us another offseason to get a deal done.
It would be interesting to see how Harrison would do being in Farriors spot. I don't know the answer to this, but how would he do being the play caller and being strictly a run stopper and cover guy.
Whoever is where, I really like the future of our LBs after the draft. Now we just need to get our oline and dline depth.
Yeah that's the great thing about Harrison, he can play all 4 spots which makes him as valuable as you can get. We know Wood is set on the oustide, he's a beast and he'll get his new deal either this season or before he hits the market next year. Timmons, I could see him pulling a Chad Brown where he's a staple on the inside but either due to injury or just production they move him outside since he's got mad pass rushing skills, and then moving Harrison inside. James is still on top of his game and keeping the beast playing opposite Woodley would be the ideal scenario.
Farrior is really the key in all this, his production will be a big factor in how this group pans out in 2010. We all know they're talented but if he has another sub par year, Tomlin would need to consider taking him out of the full time rotation and trying Harrison inside, Timmons outside, and then some combination of Farrior, Foote, or Captain Kangaroo on the inside opposite James H.
