BOR, have you given up on the idea of Barwin potentially playing SILB? I know you think Sintim could play inside. I like the idea of Barwin moving inside, and providing some situational pass rush at OLB as well. What about Clay Matthews? Do you see him playing OLB or SILB in our system? Personally I prefer Matthews to Sintim. Again, I have nothing against Sintim, but I think he will be solid though unspectacular.
I never did consider Barwin for ILB, that was your delusion.
Sure Sintim isn't the smoothest LB prospect, but he's used to playing on his feet and has played in space. He can play downhill just fine with 245 TT in a four year career at Virginia, he can generate some pass rush, he has the size needed at 6'2 1/2" 249, and he has 33" arms which compares well with top interior OL in this draft class:
Mack 33 1/4"
Unger 32 1/2"
Urbik 33 1/2"
Caldwell 33 3/4"
Luigs 31 3/4"
Matthews is an OLB for the forseeable future.
