I don't think so. The 3-tech should be a guy like Warren Sapp, Richard Seymour, Ndamukong Suh, or Geno Atkins.
The 4-3 Under was developed to isolate the weakside DT in a one-on-one matchup with the LG. The 3-tech has to be able to consistently beat the LG, and should get 5+ sacks every year. Elite 3-tech's can get 10 sacks per year.
Wolfe is the only DT we have who can do that. Knighton might be decent, but nothing special. They have bigger fish to fry now. Gotta find another Dumervil.
