I see Gholston having a breakout season to be honest. Ryan doesnt just play his players at their best positions, he uses their specific skills and traits to make his 46 defense the best it can be.
Maybe, but other then big muscles and size what does Gholston have that Suggs has? Suggs is actually a great football player that can rush the passer from a variety of spots, and he's produced at a pro bowl level since he came into the league, Gholston had a
tackle...Suggs being good doesn't have anything to do with Rex Ryan, he moves him around but he really didn't make him into what type of player he is.
Not to knock Gholston next year, but I'm not touting a breakout season for a guy who had one tackle, that's just way too optimistic...Which makes the original question very easily, Durant has already looked like a young stud in the making and he's moving to a position where he'll be even more productive...Gholston would probably never outscore Durant in an idp league, I don't even know of many 3-4 OLB's who could and Gholston certainly isn't one of them.
Durant looks like one of the guys to target in idp leagues, Gholston is still learning how to make an impact on an actual NFL team, let alone a fantasy team...Gholston is very stiff, he's nowhere near as agile and flexible in the hips as Suggs or Ware, which is why he should of stayed as a 4-3 End where he played in College...He's not good in coverage, and looks uncomfortable rushing the passer standing up, I would expect Ryan to line him up in a 3 point stance alot as an edge rusher in sets that look like a 4-3 base since they ran a hybrid scheme in Baltimore, and they'll try to put him in positions that resemble a 4-3 End but I wouldn't want him anywhere near my idp team.
