Why Sly as Nose? He's not the biggest at 315, Vickerson is bugger at 330+. And you would waste Sly's quick 1st step against double teams instead of maybe getting single match against tackles.
P.S. Of course we are asumming we're playing in a 3-4 even set.
,vickerson weights only 9 lbs heavier the Williams.
You can have vickerson,knight & Williams rotating at NT or DE.
Wood yard is a good player but he doesn't have the pass rushing skills to play OLB in a 3-4. I hate to say it but woodyard at best is a ILB in a 3-4,outside of that he doesn't fit into a 3-4.
