Golston at DE?

With Okoye moving up the draft boards & word that the Skins like him, while not being so impressed w/Adams, I see Okoye being our likely pick if we stay at #6 or trade down a few spots. Mel Kiper now has Okoye ahead of Branch. So, if we take a DT I was thinking that Golston could compete for time at right DE, depending on who we pick up in later rounds & how they look in camp.

Anyone think he could fit in at DE?

Re: Golston at DE?

I think he'll have his work cut out for him at DT. After only one season he did a really good job filling in for Sal.

Why would you think moving him to DE is a good idea?

Also, what makes you so unimpressed with Gaines?

I'd rather keep him at DT personally

It's not that I'm unimpressed w/G. Adams, but based on JLC's Skins insider, he has said that the coaches weren't that impressed with him. I would guess that a big part of that is his weight & strength (he didn't do the bench press at the combine, most figure it would've hurt his standing). He might be great in a couple years, but we can't afford to have 2 light DEs.

Golston is 290 & is a quick DT, but did get manhandled at times. If we draft a solid DT to start & don't draft a DE, the right DE position may come down to the incumbents; Wynn, Daniels & Evans (if they're here) plus whatever undrafted rookies or late pick ups come to camp. Golston is a good if unspectacular pass rusher.

My point is, it could easily still be a major hole to fill come august. I think Wynn can still play the run & Daniels is still solid all the way around when healthy, but hasn't been too healthy of late & they're both old. I see Evans as a camp cut unless we really can't get any rookies to step up.

Golston on the edge? HA!

Not nearly enough speed. Golston is quick with his hands, but he doesn't have the speed to get around the edge. Pretty iffy idea.

He'd make a good 3rd DT in a rotation. Okoye and Griffin would make a good 1-2 punch. Golston could come in when those two need a breather, and coming in with fresh legs would allow the team to take advantage of his quickness inside.

Re: Golston at DE?

I actually don't think it's such a horrible idea. Golston is a definite liability against the run, a liability that could be minimized by placing him on the outside. Moreover, it's not at all uncommon to move lighter DTs to DE. I don't know whether Golston would make the transition well, but it's definately not a crazy idea to move him to LDE.

Re: Golston at DE?

He would have to drop some weight and increase his speed/quickness along with developing some pass rushing moves.

Overall I don't think it would be playing to his strengths though. I'd rather see him go the opposite direction and bulk up a bit more to be more stout in the middle.

I don't like moving players around like this. I'd rather see us rotate DTs in and out to keep people fresh.

No way, his hands are too good to be put at corner. I'm thinking a deep-threat wideout.

Re: Golston at DE?

If we draft a DT, I see no problem in Keeping golston as a DT. He can come in in certain situations like 5-3 or 5-2 goalline/short yardage. We can also plug him in there on passing downs as a rusher and in the process keep the other DT's fresh. Moving him to DE would be a last ditch effort if we absolutely have no one else to play the position (i.e. injuries).
