Default Defensive Gurus.... I need some help

please.

If you've ever coached or been coached to play LB can you help me figure out this alignment.... it's from LZ's recent article.

If you watch the video, you have the SAM playing 5 yards from the ball, His outside foot lined up on the TEs inside foot. A DE is lined straight up on the TE.

The Mike is also 5 yards back he's lined up directly over the A gap. The Center is uncovered, the DT is lined up at 3 tech.

The WILL is lined up over the LT, 3 yards from the ball. The LT is uncovered, the DE is playing the 5 tech.

Why? Why is one LB 5 yards back another is 3 yards back? Why isn't one on the LOS? Outside the TE?

I know there is a whole lot that goes into the scheme, just trying to figure out what coaches are thinking with their LBs.
