A good example of of this type of thinking is San Francisco, who has moved Sopoaga - a classic nose tackle - outside. They think he has the quickness and feet to play out on the edge.

I can see a defensive line, at some point, consisting of Mario and Okoye on the outside and with TJ and Okam in the middle. With Mario and Okoye pressuring from the outside, Mario getting +15 sacks and Okoye getting +10 sacks, and Okam collapsing the middle, getting 4, 5, 6 sacks, things might open up for TJ so he too could get half a dozen sacks.

This could prove to be a dominant pass rush and solid against the run.
wow. Don't fix whats not broken.... Okoye is already a stud at DT, a position he played since high school. It likes the Winston debate, why move him to LT when we already used two years to teach him how to play RT. Plus I don't think Okoye could play DE, like the poster said above me, he might be quick for a DT, but could probably get neutralized by a starting NFL LT.
