Maybin mentioned on Sirius NFL Radio 2 minute drill

The brief mention at the end of the news blurb stated, "Bills have discussed moving rookie Aaron Maybin to outside linebacker if they feel he is too light to play defensive end"

I am sorry there is no link, but if you listen to Sirius NFL radio you might hear it again.

It sort of came out of nowhere, and seems very curious. With buffalobills.com usually "down" over the weekend, I can't find anything there or anywhere else?

Thoughts? I know Maybin can run a 4.6 timed speed at his more natural 240lb weight, and certainly has quickness, and while he was projected as a possible 3-4 OLB, how would that translate to the 4-3? As well, what are the thoughts of him developing into that position over the season and does anyone think that Maybin has already been preparing for a switch to LB with or without the Bills coaching staff in the mix? Another connection to this line of thinking could be his connections to LBs, Shawn Merriman, Ray Lewis, and Lavar Arrington? 

I will say that while I am skeptical about his effectiveness at LB, because I am not knowledgeable enough on Maybin's game or the specifics of such a transition, if it were to work it would certainly shore up the OLB position. However....I would be very disappointed with losing a DE prospect...unless they really plan on moving him around a lot. Could he be a Shawn Merriman, or just some guy we keep waiting to achieve? 

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
