Draft Picks Hint At New Defense?

Watching the first 4 rounds of the draft has me thinking, we might moving towards the 3-4. I know this is an old though, since thats what RR ran in SD, but look at the picks. Kuechly, a MLB, could be combined with Beason in the middle. Alexander, viewed as a "tweener" DE, could be moved to a pass rusher OLB.

These two picks don't prove anything, but do bring up the interesting prospect of carolina moving in that direction. Also, we haven't made any of the moves people thought we needed to make for our current defense. Such as getting another strong DT in the middle or drafting an elite DE.

just a thought.

I'll buy it when we pick a 3-4 nose. I don't think Fua could handle that role. McClain definitely could not.

thomas davis and james anderson are not 3-4 linebackers. charles johnson would be a olb. It's not gonna happen we are a 4-3 team.

Don't forget about Ron Edwards, didn't he hold up the nose for the Chiefs?

We will see 3-4 looks, but our base D is going to remain 4-3.

Expect to see some awesome wrinkles with TD coming off the bench to provide a dynamic element.

If we picked up someone like Josh Chapman then I think there's a strong possibility.

The coaches told Luke Kuechly they wanted him to learn "all three linebacker spots".

That makes me think it's highly unlikely we're switching to a base 3-4.

Damn all these injuries! I've forgotten about half our roster.
