For me, it's because Crick is a true DT. Smith & Jamison played DE most of their careers. Crick is a truer inside player.
According to my way of thinking, Smith & Jamison would be out of place in what I consider a traditional 3-4. Too short to play end, not wide enough to play NT.
But wade is using them as a traditional 4-3 UT & it works. In a 4-3 I can see Crick playing both the NT & UT, but not DE.
