    He already went through the process of putting the weight back on and spent, basically, a second rookie year learning his position last season. He showed impact in limited reps at DE. He's poised to either become a valued addition to the team or a busted draft pick.

    While I both agree and disagree with many posts in this thread I have to lean towards champ on this one.

    It would be bad if he didnít, you think he just drafted Walker without a plan for him?

    That would be worse than him having a hand in making him an OLB. He had an idea how he saw him being used in Denver before the draft.

    Itís not like they drafted him and got him on the field and suddenly figured heíd be best at 3-4 olb based off a few practices. They had the guys measurables and tape for months.

    Walker was drafted to be a DL...IN camp when we lost shane ray and shaq VJ moved him to LB. Not elway. Also, VJ made the stupid comment that he thought Walker looked like a LB coming out of college.
    For now....
    1. Reuben Badass LB; 2. Joe Mixon RB; 3. Jake Butt TE; 3B Sid Jones DB; 4. Bucky Hoges TE; 6. Ryan Switzer WR. Trade for Sheldon Richardson.

    Youíre bonkers if you donít think Elway had s hand in him moving to OLB. Him and VJ for sure discussed it before the draft, which might be an additional reason Elway got him

    Then why sign Kasim Edabali and give him more PT? Walker at OLB was a panicked contingency decision after losing Ray and Barrett. And Iím sure the logic went something like well heís quick for an interior pass rusher at 280, if he drops weight heíll be a quick edge rusher despite the fact that heís clearly not flexible enough to play the edge.

    Kasim has nothing to do with Walker. Iím not saying Shaq and Shane didnít contribute to Walker being moved. But you better believe it was in Johnís scouting report that he could play OLB in a 3-4.

    There was no need to ďpanickĒ and experiment with Walker when they couldíve gotten someone off the street.

    John most likely drafted him with the idea he was a tweener and he simply wasnít

    Please provide a source with direct comments from Elway and/or VJ about their discussion.

    Common sense would suggest the coaches make coaching decisions and the GM acquires personnel. This is not Jerry Jones or Al Davis we are talking about here. Elway has never had a hand in player decisions, so why would common sense dictate that Walker would be the one time he has?

    GMs have an idea of how players are going to fit on a roster before they actually make it. If they didnít then they wouldnít be doing their job right

    Your comments about Elwayís involvement were speculation, which would be fine if not spoken as fact.
