You would need a NT, two OLB's with some ability to get after the QB, and if you're thinking about shifting Cushing and Ryans (coming off a major surgery as it is) you're still leaving two gaping holes at LB. If you even attempt to assert that Diles is an answer, I will laugh in your face. Then, you can move to our current problems that we will have a hard enough time filling with our lack of a true FS and our complete ineptness and lack of experience at CB. Like I said, I will absolutely laugh in your face if you think switching would be the smart move.
Sorry to rant.
as I know your prone to do
but in this scenero I must agree. Conversion back to a 3-4 that was never successful to begin with, then aquiring defensive foundation players speicalized for a 4-3 would be suicide, setting Texans back another (regime) 5 years. the Texans need to get smart or lucky, I don't care and actually draft an interior ideal three technique 4-3 DT. Let's assume our professional representation amongst Texans scouting department have a better understanding what exactly to target & fill this need? Texans are going to need some luck on this but a perfect fit would be Drake Nevis, LSU & he might still be on the board in the 2nd rd.? He is cat quick & fits the profile @ 6'1" 295. Unlike Amobi or even Mario he has an assortment of pass rushing moves, I've seen him use a spin, rip, club & arm over just to name four, plus he plays consistantly with a sense of urgency.
