If Okam pans out, he should make a decent NT in a 3/4.
We'd pretty much kill Mario's career, if we made him a DE in a 3/4, and pretty much wasted a #1 overall draft pick.
Don't get me wrong, Mario would be perfect for a 3/4 DE, but a 3/4 DE is not worth a #1 overall draft pick.
Amobi should never see a 3/4. he doesn't fit either position, just like TJ does not fit a 3/4...... at least not my vision of a 3/4. They've got the body to play NT, but the skills to play DE... more quick than strong.
Look at Spears, Canty, Castillo & Olshansky. That's what a 3/4 DE should look like. 6-4 and up, 300lbs or so.
Weaver would make a decent 3/4 DE. We don't expect him to rush the passer anyway. Just create pressure up the middle. Same thing with Cochran(a little smallish) & Tim Bullman.
Mario would have to be an OLB..... he may be athletic enough to pull it off.....
