This is one pick outside of the top ten. This should be an impact player. Most DEs hate converting to a 3-4, because DE is not an impact position.

People were concerned that Mario would be upset about switching to a 3-4. They are saying Antonio Smith is not happy about playing in a 3-4, even though he has no problem sliding inside in a 4-3.

4-3 DE, impact player. 3-4 DE...... not.

It's like Tackles wanting to play LT, not RT. Or corners wanting to play corner, & not safety.
We play a 1 gap 3/4 where the DE's are expected to penetrate, not take up blocks like most 3/4's.
