I'm not saying he will be a 34 elephant, I'm saying it's my opinion that he has the skill to play there. No doubt he's a known commodity as a 43 DE, which is why he may not even be on the board at 28, assuming they're interested in him.
Unfortunately for this class, any high round DE/OLB type, outside of Von Miller and Akeem Ayers will be a conversion type and I'm not sure what your opinion of Ayers is, but I don't see him as an impact type player.
Houston was listed as a 34 OLB this past season, but spent most of his time with his hand in the dirt, rushing the passer, atleast based off of what I've seen and he certainly didn't look that comfortable when asked to operate in space at the combine. Kerrigan, Smith, Reed, Sheard, Acho and Quinn are all 43 DE's that would need to make a converasion. Martez Wilson who some posters have brought up was an ILB so he too would need to make a change of position. He's also raw as a pass rusher as compared to the others, so you have to wonder how advanced that part of his game would be early in his career.
