Replace Will Smith with Kenny Vaccaro at OLB

Anyone who was watching the first series against the Chiefs last week will have seen that the major flaw in our defense is having Will Smith covering running backs and tight ends. He is way to bulky to chase after them. Offensive coordinators watching that tape are going to eat us alive, beginning with Steven Jackson and Atlanta. Why not think out of the box and have Kenny Vaccaro play OLB with pass coverage responsibilities. He would eventually gain some bulk, but in the meantime he would be a great tackler and could easily match up with tight ends and backs. He could also be sent on the occasional weak side blitz. The rest of the defense looks good, the run defense, pass rush, and coverage of medium to long routes. But we are gonna get killed if we don't find an OLB that can cover the flat and short routes.
