How many tweeners does a 4-3 team need?

Would you call Hardy and Johnson tweeners too? All of them are practically the same size.

No to tweeners and the idiots who think we're going to a 34 D.

If we were going to a 34 D, then Ingram would be the obvious choice. However, I don't think that's realistic.

I have seen just as many scouts say that Ingram fits in a 4-3 better than a 3-4 than compared to 3-4 vs 4-3.

u know were switching to 3-4 right?

We'll use the 3-4 with the all black uniforms, and the 4-3 with the regular uniforms.

Norwood weight 240, Keiser 260, Applewhite 260. Ingram played last year at 264, now 276. Johnson and Hardy are both in the upper 270 ranges. The question becomes whether or not Ingram can maintain that bulk without affecting his speed, and whether he'll be a good run defender. There's no evidence to support either claim. Even if he is the same size as Hardy, the worst run defending right end in the NFL, that's not necessarily a good thing.

Bottom line, he's short and small. Not a big fan of taking him in the top ten with those measurables.

I was skeptical at first, but a Von Miller type role does sound pretty awesome.... I just like Thomas Davis, and hope he can come back from his injury is all.

When did he gain 12 pounds. At the combine he was listed as 6'1" 264 lbs and ran a 4.79 40.
