It's all a terminology/semantic thing.

Since we're a hybrid 3-4, most people are going to say that JJ is in a DE position... with Cody/Mitchell in as the NT and Barwin/Mercilus/Reed in as OLBs. But you COULD use the standard 5-2 terminology which usually calls the two outside guys (Barwin/Mercilus/Reed) DEs and the three inside guys (Cody/Mitchell, Watt/Smith/Crick) DTs although sometimes they make a distinction between those three inside guys by calling the middlemost lineman an NT instead of a DT.

Personally, I still think of the positions in terms of a 3-4 even though it has strong 5-2 tendencies.
