Default Sticking with the 3-4

Have to say, after watching the draft, if we can trade down at all, boy would I love to get Vonn and Jordan. Two immediate impact players at DE and LB would make a immediate difference.

If we stay with the 3-4 Dareus would be the best option at 5 tech DE and then if we could swing getting Paea or Taylor then we would definitly have something

We're not sticking with the 3-4. At most the defense would be a hybrid, but Fox has always used a 4-3 base defense just cause he didn't shoot down the idea doesn't mean they're really considering it. The only way I could see them going to a 3-4 is if they hired a defensive coordinator that had more experience in that scheme. Allen has some, but has mostly worked in a 4-3 and as a defensive backs coach he hasn't been involved with the front 7 anyway.

Its a safe assumption that this team will be working off a base 4-3.

Besides with a last placed defense change is generally a good thing.

Dareus would still be a good (and safe) pick.

Fox' first NFL job was DB coach under Chuck Noll in Pittsburgh, running a 3-4.

I'd personally bet on a hybrid front, seeings how Fox has talked about 4-3/3-4 isn't the most important aspect of a scheme and how we just hired a DC who has experience in the 4-3, 3-4, and is coming from a team that has been doing a lot of hybrid scheme stuff.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Dareus is our target. His style of play reminds me of Sedrick Ellis and New Orleans has done great using him as a movable impact player on the DL.

I'd love it if Dareus is our target. Fairley, Dareus and Peterson are my top 3 if we stay at 2.

They don't know what defense we'll be running till they evaluate the players so to say they are definitely going to run a 4-3 is not true. I believe it will be a hybrid

"I don't look at it as a huge issue," Allen said. "Each player has a unique skill set and the challenge for a coach is to find out what those guys do well. So we're going to give them opportunities to do the things that they do well, whether it's 4-3, 3-4, 4-4, it doesn't really matter. I think our challenge is finding out what our personnel can do and highlighting those strengths."

This sounds like what Pit does. They run more 4-3 now than 3-4 it sounds like. I'd prefer running a 3-4 100 percent of the snaps ala Pit.

Xanders in a recent interview said that they're adjusting their draft philosophy from the 3-4 to the "John Fox 4-3" so while we'll likely see situational 3-4 sets it seems we are moving to a the base 4-3 that John Fox has consistently run.
