Lawson to inside linebacker...

Just wanted to through out this idea. Even if we do re-sign Takeo Spikes, both him and Ulbrich aren't getting any younger and we need younger talent at the inside linebacking position. Manny Lawson has shown that he is not the pass rushing threat the 49ers wanted when they drafted him at the outside linebacking position, in fact when it is a "passing down" they take him out. But he has proven that he is great at covering and he is a sure tackler. So why not try him out at inside linebacker? The way things are going now, i just can't see the 49ers bringing Lawson back after next season. Also as we all have been saying the 49ers need a significant upgrade at outside linebacker which would mean Haralson and Lawson would probably split time if the 49ers acquire such a starter. I really like Lawson but I think he needs to either get angry and become a QB head hunter at the outside linebacker position, or find a new position. Heck, who knows, maybe he could play safety.

BTW, if Spikes does come back, and I hope he does, I think he should move to outside linebacker (if Lawson moves to ILB) a position he has played before and has excelled at.
