THe problem with putting him in another lane is ganks. You put him in bot lane and it opens you to ganks from Jungler/Mid. You put him solo top and it's suicide. You put him in the mid and he can ward the sides, push the lane, and be able to keep himself fairly safe (unless they have a rammus or nocturne, but obviously you have to shift play according to the enemy team.
He has good synergy with a cloak champ like twitch. He can push his lanes, look like a derp to the enemy champ who overextends to his death when twitch is roaming through mid. It requires coordination with the pushing and twitch showing up, but that would give you a slow, stun, and good damage output between the two and drop someone quite easily.
Twitch is a great bot lane and a decent jungler if he gets aid taking down Red buff so there's an option for you.
