We have a good linebacker core. Consisting of 4-3 linebackers.

We are not going to scrap the whole defense to change to the 3-4.

I second that. Most people think it's all plug and play and that a 4-3 linebacker can just switch to a 3-4 and be successful. Look no furthur then what happened to Johnathan Vilma when the Jets went to a 3-4. He was constantly looking lost and out of place. Not only that but a most people think that all you need is big guy to put on the Dline. Size isn't everything the best thing they can do is absorb multiple blockers and allow the LB's to finish up the play. In order to do this that OLine must respect there skills in order to double team them.

To use the tired cliche' "Its like comparing Apples to Oranges"

I am sure everybody read the article at the beginning of the web site....

I agree that Fox is not a 3-4 guy but lets face that might be the personal we might have next year....

I don't see nobody other then http://www.draftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/de/Tyson-Jackson.php that can replace Peppers in this draft (as poor mens version..).

If we can't lend him, we are in trouble.....

Isn't wiser then use the strengths of the roster

A LBs core of Beason, Davis, O'Connor, Diggs, Johnson can play 3-4, isn't it coach duty to apply a scheme that fits to the roster strengths instead sturdly apply scheme that the team has no personel for it....

*personnal attack*

Lock.. I'm tired of hearing about a 3-4 defensive scheme we will never switch to as long as Fox is here.

the roster is setup for the 4-3. We're a one-gap team. We're going to stay a one gap team.

As for the draft ends, Jackson's more of a DT in our scheme, or end on a 3-4. He's a hell of an athlete, but there are numerous first-day DEs that fit right end very well - Brian Orakpo, Everette Brown, Michael Johnson, Larry English, Connor Barwin.

I don't know. Jackson, despite his size could still very well play DE here. Fox likes his linemen big, I mean Pep was around 285, and Brayton at 280.

Could, just as Chris Canty could. But our problem isn't stopping the run and Peppers was brought in for his rush, not his run stopping. That he became a complete player was a great bonus, but we need pass rush. A guy who can do that situationally to grow into a role would be better than a guy who situationally stops the run and can't contribute where we're worst.
