An overall deep group of defensive linemen is likely to be especially attractive for teams that play a 3-4 defensive scheme. Draft guru Tony Pauline includes most of the top defensive linemen in this year’s draft as prospects to play in a three-man front.


“At the top you have Star Lotulelei of Utah. You have Sharriff Floyd of Florida, who can play two-gap defensive end; Sheldon Richardson of Missouri, a 3-4, two-gap defensive end. Jesse Williams of Alabama can be used at nose tackle or as a two-gap defensive end. Johnathan Hankins of Ohio State, Sylvester Williams of North Carolina, Kwann Short of Purdue, John Jenkins of Georgia are all potential nose tackles in different types of systems,” Pauline said in ticking off the prospects.

“Down the line, A.J. Francis of Maryland, William Campbell of Michigan and Abry Jones of Georgia are all 3-4 defensive ends. Brandon Williams of Missouri Southern and Montori Hughes of Tennessee-Martin are potential nose tackles,” Pauline added.

And the Texans will take Jose Jose as an UDFA.

They interviewed him but man the red flags. Possession of a firearm and assault with it? Getting kicked of his team? Man that better have been one hell of an interview.

William Gholston from Michigan State is touted as a 3-4 DE. 6-6 280, athletic, pretty decent production.

Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. Not to mention he has some character flags.

He was touted as a breakout player as a Soph, but never broke out until he had 2 sacks in their bowl game (5 on the year).

This past season he was touted as a preseason all-american and had all of 4.5 sacks.

Guy is great when you run away from him because his athletic ability allows him to chase and get to the ball. But run right at him and he folds.

I think they relied too heavily on him as a pass rusher, when that really isn't what he is good at, or at least not in that fashion. They kept asking him to change his responsibilities up, or atleast that's what it looks like when you watch a full game with him.
