    So make him a 5 tech. He's better at rushing the passer anyways

    I'd say draft a nose in the draft but... Really we are better off taking a DE and sticking to a 43 because we are closer to being a solid unit in that scheme. 34 NT use to be easy to come by. Not so much now.

    Sammie Hill is terrible against the run. Perfect NT...

    Let's be honest, we don't have one good MLB on this roster, let alone two. We don't have a NT. Derrick Morgan wouldn't have a position.

    About the only guy this change would benefit is Ayers, I guess, but he didn't exactly set the world on fire as a pass rusher last year.

    The 3-4 alignment using the front 7 we have now would be.

    ---------Pitoitua--- -Hill ----Casey-----------

    Brown--- McCarthy--- Fokou ----Ayers/Wimbley

    Hill as a NT doesn't excite me.. Wimbley will be gone, can't count on Mccarthy & Fokou..

    Gooden, Brown & Ayers all fit 3-4 well, but not sure how all 3 can play at once..
