It may end playing out like this but I think it would be a mistake to play AJ at SLB ( or SAM). As you know the TE is usually over there.. with the extra blocker and of course the extra coverage responsibilities it will take away from his natural playmaking ability.
I got disagree with any comparison of Urlacher with Hodge.. theres no comparison. Urlacher is actually mucher bigger than any Packers LB at 258 and he just as fast as AJ. Maybe AJ can get bigger and to be in the same class as Urlacher he will need to play MLB (or MIKE). I do think this may be in his future.
