He tested really well in the high school camp settings and was pretty explosive. He was just 6'1" and 230, and doesn't have a really big frame.
Considering they want full service DE's, I think they'll want him to be 260+. They would obviously never turn down an elite edge rusher, but the standard guy for that position appears to me to be someone in the 260 to 280 range, that can hold up well enough in the run and still influence the QB. Frankly, the entire DL seems to be more about occupying blockers than necessarily making a ton of explosive plays. Wouldn't surprise if we see an LB lead the team in sacks as often as not.
Moving Lole inside would surprise me. He's a really good fit for the DE position in this defense. I frankly can't tell exactly what they are looking for in the NT position. Wren played there, but that probably wasn't his best fit. Davidson is more in the roll of the traditional 3-4 NT, but Forman is more of a tweener. Pesafea will probably play inside, but he isn't a nose tackle in the traditional sense either.
