    Just a few comments, I think it's Eric Norwood, not Freeman. Also I'd list Sintim as a 3-4 OLB not ILB, that's where he plays now and does a very good job of it. Interested to see how he produces with not as much help.

    That is correct comahan
    I ******* LOVE YOU DG

        6'6 is wayyyyy too tall for a 3-4 NT, usually the tallest you will see them is like 6'4, 6'6 is perfect for 3-4 DEs

        and how is James Laurinaitis(?) not in the ILBs collumn
        I'm doing a real job now...well, semi-real.

        Check out my twitter @mrocchio42 and check out my radio show on wqqx1490am.com. I'm on every morning with Pro Football HoF voter and NFL regular season awards voter, Howard Balzer. It's always a blast from 9-11.

          He is a better fit for a 4-3 not a 3-4

                  Alot will depend on the system being implemented.

                  For example some 3-4 teams prefer faster, more athletic ILBs for their 3-4. A good example is Donnie Edwards for the Chargers.

                  Some teams want pluggers at DE (ala Ty Warren, Luis Catillo etc); other schemes want DEs who can penetrate alot more.

                  Some other guys who could easily play in a 3-4

                  DE - Jeff Owens, Georgia [6-1, 298]
                  DE - Vance Walker, Georgia Tech [6-2, 295]
                  DE - Evander Hood, Missouri [6-2, 295]
                  DE - Alex Magee, Purdue [6-3, 295]
                  DE - DeMarcus Granger, Oklahoma [6-2, 315]
                  DE - Ricky Jean-Francois, LSU [6-3, 280]
                  DE - Sen'Derrick Marks, Auburn [6-1, 290]
                  DE - Vince Oghobaase, Duke [6-6, 310]
                  DE - Geno Atkins, Georgia [6-1, 290]

                  ILB - James Laurenaitis, Ohio State [6-2, 240]
                  ILB - Darry Beckwith, LSU [6-1, 235]
                  ILB - Tyrone McKenzie, South Florida [6-2. 235]

                  OLB - Michael Johnson, Georgia Tech [6-7, 256]


                  That is without any major positional changes such as Nic Harris, Oklahoma
                  [6-2,224] moving to LB

                    If Nic Harris, Myrone Rolle, or Taylor Mays move to LB it will be in a Tampa 2 defense not a 3-4. That, or they would be used much in the same way as Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers.

                      No matter how hard I try I can't see Rolle becoming a LB. It would have to be a T2 though (if it was attempted). You're right about that.

                          Just found yet another 3-4 edge rusher, Everette Brown DE Florida St. [6-4, 246]

                          Heres some things I learned about him
                          Might only have been a part-time starter but is more physically gifted than former Seminole Kamerion Wimbley.
                          Remember the big, bad Florida State defensive end? Guys like Andre Wadsworth and Peter Boulware and Reinard Wilson and Derrick Alexander. Seemed like every year during the glory years of the mid-1990s, the Seminoles had at least one dominant end, maybe two, and maybe one or two lurking in the shadows, waiting.

                          Well, been a while since FSU had such a guy. Yeah, the Seminoles have had good DEs in recent seasons: Kamerion Wimbley. Chauncy Davis. Eric Moore. But they haven't had that player - the one capable of instilling fear in opposing quarterbacks and the one that causes offensive coordinators to adjust their gameplans.

                          Everette Brown, though, might just be that player. The redshirt sophomore emerged in the fall with 37 tackles, 11.5 for loss and 6.5 sacks -- a team best. Now he wants more. And expects more. I caught up with Brown after practice yesterday and we discussed his performance in the fall, his goals for the offseason, his transition into becoming a leader and the prospects of the Seminoles' defensive line, which loses Andre Fluellen, Alex Boston and Letroy Guion.
                          Interview: http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/spo...tte-brown.html

                          Willie Young DE North Carolina St. [6-5, 243]

                          Starting defensive end in the last eight games of the year, he played in all 12 contests ... Tallied 16 tackles for loss for the season, that ties as the seventh-best mark in school history ... That mark ties as the second-best ever by a Wolfpack sophomore and was one more than #1 NFL draft pick Mario Williams had during his sophomore campaign ... Pressured the opponent quarterback 24 times for the year, including an incredible eight times against North Carolina ... 14 of his 16 tackles for loss were in the last seven games of the year ... Posted the best all-around performance of his career in the win over Virginia, tallying seven tackles, including three sacks and pressuring the Cavalier QB five times ... In for a season-high 62 snaps in that contest ... Broke up six passes for the season, the third-highest mark on the team.

                              This upcoming year seems to be one of the best ever for 3-4 talent.
