connor has yet to show anything, and diggs is very under appriciated

I don't feel like connor fits here but hopefully I am wrong.

I don't think he has enough athetism to play in a 3-4 and I don't know how effective he will be in a Tampa 2. The Tampa 2 requires the MLB to drop in deep coverage and I would probably take Diggs to play shallow coverage over Connor.

Whoever proves to the coaches that they are the better player for the position. I say that will be Diggs, based on experience and better coverage skills. This might be a moot point anyway, because the coaches might not give Connor a look at OLB.

Diggs is a very solid player. He's not a big impact player but he's certainly not a weak link either.

People forget that Dan Connor played OLB at Penn State his first three years and was All-American at OLB as a Junior.

He can play the position, and he will get his chance to start hopefully sooner than later.

I still don't understand everyone's obsession of trying to find someone to start in place of Diggs. The man has been nothing but solid since he's been here.

i think it has more to do with the fact connor was a steal in the draft and people just want to see him on the field

^^What he said. I also agree with most that diggs has been solid. Not spectacular but really solid. I think Morgan can play OLB so it will be whomever plays in system best. We know Beason, Davis are locks. Johnson stepping up would be a pleasant suprise also.

I also think that thid will be the year that Landon Johnson steps up his game....its hard to say who will start bc LB is such a strong unit for our team
