I agree Ogaltree would work there, but that's because of his versatility and coverage ability. In Base D he is either a 4-3 OLB or 3-4 ILB.
The big nickel and peso are pretty much the same thing. If Woodson could come in and replace Leonhard who I think is too small for that role 5'9 188 pounds when NU used guys 6'2 210. Woodson is closer at 6'1 200 pounds.
