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.
If they make the shift to the 3-4 you don't think Cushing & Barwin would be good OLB's? You have Cushing & Barwin on the outside with Sharpton & Ryans in the middle. Get a big NT in FA or the draft & I could see them making a quick transition to the 3-4.
