There is more than one kind of 3-4 defense. Phillips' version doesn't need a massive NT to operate like the purer 3-4 Parcells favors.

Here is a great link someone posted earlier:

That guy might actually be on the team right now ..... Shaun Cody had a pretty damn good season. I think he was the best player on the DL for much of the year. Made plays all over the field.


Ive stated this a dozen times or more here but it's always overlooked ....

The main problem with this defensive front is what the DT's are asked to do which is penetrate rather than push the pocket what this has done is always left a place for the QB to step up away from the outside rush which just gets run right by on the back side. They have always left angles for the QB because of what they have been asked to do ....


Maybe a change in scheme and responsibility is what this defensive front needs. Especially 0k0ye , I think he's better suited to a 3-4 DE rather than a 4-3 DT .....

Put some money up:

Nick Fairly (Auburn)Height: 6-4

Quote:
Weight: 315
40-Yard Dash: 4.90

Strengths:
Incredible combination of size, speed, and athletic ability
Uses hands very effectively, long arms
Disruptive run stuffer, often getting to the ball carrier in the backfield
Explosive pass rusher, great first step and burst off the line
Can get to the quarterback using his strength on the bull rush, but also has a nice arsenal of pass-rushing moves that take advantage of his athletic ability
Consistently splits gaps and double teams
Has the agility and speed to chase string plays out from sideline to sideline
Great snap anticipation, often the first player off the line
Good closing burst on tackles

Weaknesses:There are no significant weaknesses in Fairley's game that I can see at this time.

Bottom Line on Nick Fairley:Nick Fairley is an elite prospect at defensive tackle who should quickly develop into an impact player in the NFL. His overall size and athletic ability are rare, which is why he will go very high in the draft. He also has the versatility to play in any system. He's equally devastating against the run and as a pass rusher, and has Pro Bowl potential written all over him.

Projection: Fairly should be a top-five pick in 2011 if he decides to leave school early

Man, you've got to love seeing that

I don't want to see Fairley in a 3-4 at all. I think he will do very well in a 4-3, think Warren Sapp. But he would surely do fine as a 3-4 nose.

If you're gonna have your nose tackle play a 2-gap then you want somebody like Wilfork, but if he's in the gap (a 1-gapper), as Wade did in Dallas where he used the "smallish" Ratliff, then we don't need a "space eater".

Thanks to the clutch win against the Jags, there is no way the Texans land Fairley.

Probably no one worth a 1st.

A pass rushing OLB will probably be the pick. I see Cush going inside, and there is way too much risk of Barwin flopping due to injury

Wilfork's played all along the line (except DE, obviously) in the Pats hybrid. He actually kicked more ass playing the typical 4-3 DT position.
