Good point, that being said setting the edge for a DE is extremely important, forcing the plays inside really helps the LBers do their jobs, especially in a 5-2 where you only got 2 LBers flowing to the play and if the opposing oline is any good, one of those LBers is being blocked by an onlineman leaving 1 LBer to make a tackle.
