    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>The Jaguars hired a defensive coordinator, Mel Tucker, with a recent background in the 3-4 and one of their two defensive ends drafted last season, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11286" target="_new">Quentin Groves</a>, can play comfortably as a 3-4 outside linebacker.</p> <p>Add it all up and it means we'll see the Jaguars <a href="http://jacksonville.com/interact/blog/michael_c_wright/2009-02-27/jaguars_to_try_some_3-4_defense_next_season" target="_blank">jump into some 3-4</a> in 2009, according to Michael C. Wright.</p> <p>He gives a very detailed account of two different versions of the 3-4. Interestingly, he says <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3537" target="_new">John Henderson</a> was actually playing like a two-gap nose tackle last year, frustrating coaches who didn't want him to wait and decide which gap to fill.</p> <p>How much will the Jags do this? It could be merely situational. But if they prove good at it, we could see it more than that.</p>
