    Not sure if anyone's caught on
    we took a few guys that project into positions we currently do not have

    Antonio Johnson called "a natural zero-tech Nose Tackle"
    Jacob Ford - a possible 3-4 OLB

    both these guys have the developmental tag


    just thinking out loud

    I doubt it. Those guys can also play 4-3. But I could see them mixing in some 3-4 looks in.

    so weird that we drafted a bunch of guys that do not have clearly defined positions (off-topic a little)

    WR Paul Williams - CB
    C Leroy Harri - ANY OL position (i like that actually)
    WR Chris Davis - Returner
    DT Antonio Johnson - NT
    DE Jacob Ford - 3/4 OLB
    CB Ryan Smith - Nickle
    LT Mike Otto - RT / OG

    no freaking wonder people had no clue what Mike / Jeff were doing
    hell, the guys they drafted don't know what the hell they're doing either

    strange things a happenin'

    seems to me they all have clearly define positions.

    Williams said himself he doesnt know where he wanted to play corner himself came from.

    Devin Hester is an example of someone without a clearly defined position.

    they do not have clearly defined positions when WR's are being talked about playing Corner and DT are being talked about as true Nose Tackles and DE's are discussed as 3/4 OLB

    we have a different definition of 'clearly defined'

    talked about by who? the team or the experts?

    being versatile doesnt mean they dont have a definition.

    You can also add Griffen - S or CB

    I think we might be switching to a 3-4 in the near future. We have very talented LBs (Bulluck, Thorton, Tulloch(developing), _______), and we have VDB and the new guy on the outside of the line. We'd dominate..........im just kidding!

    I think we'll use the 3-4 just as we have in the past because it take KVB out of the play.

    We don't have enough LB's for a 3-4. You have to have a slew of LB's.

    we used a little bit of 3-4 when odom was on the field last year, but it was essentially a four man rush since we just rushed odom, starks, haynesworth and kvb. very enginuitive, i must say....

    in an interview ford said he was told he would be playing with his hand on the ground, but i wouldnt be shocked to see him used in the same role as odom last year.
