Default Re: Dutch's 2013 Texans Offseason Projections and Info

Just like any team in the NFL, we're a multi-front team (though we have more different fronts than most.)

Our favorite front is the WILL WINK (5-man front).
It looks quite similar to the 4-man under (with a LB on the LOS).

In this front, the NT shades to the strong side as a 1-tech
The weak-side DE lines up outside the weak-side guard as a 3-tech (Antonio Smith).
The weak-side OLB lines up about 2 yard outside the weak-side tackle as a 7-tech.

The strong-side DE lines up on the outside eye of the strong side tackle to head-up (4 or 5-tech) (Watt).
The strong side OLB lines up usually outside the TE as a 9-tech.

The two OLBs could line up wider than that, for different reasons (depending on the offensive personnel, or certain specific D-call).

It really is very simlar to the 4-man under front, except that Watt is head-up on the tackle more often than outside the tackle.

And we have two guys with hands off the ground (the 2 OLBs) whereas the 4-man under has the weak-side DE with hand on the ground.

The NT, the UT (under tackle), and the SAM (strong side OLB) are the same on either front.
