    He is too small for LB
    Make the move to Strong Safety
    TP -Style....
    When Troy Polamalu won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, even tho it wasn't as a strong safety. There really is no title for what Polamalu does. He could always play the field like any other safety does.

    Now itz time for Devin Bush Jr. To create his own title for him as a player.......

    Ben's pretty big! He could take Bush's spot at LB?

    Take the only good player from a weak position to try and strengthen an already strong position :nea:

    Also, what made Troy so special was his instincts. There is nothing to suggest Bush could replicate that.

    I just want to see Bush not hit the wall conditioning-wise this year.

    I thought Bush was to fill the huge hole Shazier left?

    Shazier: 6'1 229lbs
    Bush: 5'11 234lbs

    Seems like the 2 have the same physical makeup; Why do you think Shazier and Bush are to small to play LB?

    Let's just clarify something here. Devin Bush is not small. He's short. Bush officially measured 5'10", 234 lbs. at the combine. Polamalu officially measured 5'10", 206 lbs. at the 2003 combine. Comparing Bush to some notable recent LBs who have had success as NFL LBs, and their official combine measurements: Darius Leonard 6'2", 234; Roquan Smith 6'1", 236; Rashaan Evans 6'3", 232; Shaq Thompson 6'0", 228; and let's not forget Ryan Shazier 6'1", 237.

    Bush at 234 lbs. and only 5'10" is pretty stout compared to these other guys. He lacks height, but not size or strength. Even his arm length is consistent with guys like Smith, Evans and Shazier at 32 or 32 1/4"

    Bush didn't go to Pitt, Penn State or Ohio State. A red flag if I ever saw one.

    I can't help but notice that the OP ha started two threads recently and both were highly questionable topics that are on the extreme fringe. I don't want to say troll but

    I agree with the OP. Move Bush to SS. Then move Edwards to LOLB, freeing up TJ to play at guard. Then DeCastro could move to ILB, which is his natural pisition.
