This is ridiculous. The strength of the 3-4 is not the OLBs. Take Demarcus Ware off the Cowboys & you've lost your pass rush, but not the heart of your D.

Cushing is a football player, he's very rounded, very versatile. At ILB, he'll be in position to use all his talents, not just his pass rushing ability.

Think Demarcus Ware/Bradie James. Each of those guys were instrumental to the 2009 Cowboy's Defense.

Cushing is perfect where they project him to go. He's a decent blitzer but not a good pass rusher if that makes any sense. Demeco is similar too.

Wrong. Nading is definitely not a 4-3 DE. He may look a lot better as an OLB.

And what's up with Mark Anderson? I think he's as good an OLB prospect as anyone out there in FA or the draft.
Like Barwin, Nading & Andersens experience is also limited to the 4-3 as DE ends so who knows how they'd do in the 3-4 ? For example, who knows how they can play in pass coverage ?

If Demarcus Ware and Bradie James both hit the free agent market, who would ca$h in the most?

Equating Bradie James' value to Demarcus Ware's is what's ridiculous.

You're right, I should have used Ray Lewis & Terrell Suggs.

Patrick Willis & Manny Lawson.

Bart Scott & Calvin Pace.

Maybe a consideration when you are drafting, but once you have the assets just have use as many of them in the best possible combinations. Of course, if we had enough good assets might not be talking about fitting Mario and Cushing into what is probably their 2nd best positions.
