RE: [patriotzip] Seymour's Role
- Plain and simple, I don't want to see Seymour at end. While he is quick as a
tackle, I do not seem him being quick enough to play end. I think he would
apply very little pressure on the QB from there, but he would be an
excellent run stuffer at that spot. Keep him at tackle...sign or draft
another big man to play next to him, and get some speed for the DE spot.
