    why are people saying timmons is a better fit for the 3 - 4?

    just curious, they seem like the same player practically, played the same pos in college, their measurments are almost the same, etc.

    thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

      I think Timmons is more explosive as pass rusher

        Forget the height, the thing that concerns me with Timmons playing in a 3-4 is his weight. He's only 230 pounds, I want my 3-4 LB to be at least 240-245, 250 would be ideal. The thing I see from Timmons is that he does not beat blocks head on, but rather uses his speed to get around them. When being ran directly at in a 3-4 you need that size and strength to take a blocker head on and direct him out of your way in order for you to make a play on the ball. That's the only question mark I have. No doubt Timmons can be a great edge rusher, and that's the difference between he and Paul P. I don't see Pos as a true rusher. However with both Beason and Timmons, can they stop the run at the next level within a 3-4 relying on their speed?

        If I had my pick give me Anthony Spencer, 6-3 260, 4.6 speed, and 500 pound bench press. He can get after the QB, he's big, powerful, can shed blocks, and plays well vs the run.

          blah neither of them. i think i would be somewhat dissappointed if timmons or beason were picked in the 1st round.


          Silverback....still the best.

            ya i think the situations they were made to play in is what people are going off of. beason in miami was a roamer and a coverage guy that helped with the run. cover two OLB. timmons was a pass rusher that tried to help stop the run. 3-4 OLB. and the reason i want neither of them, is beason is a cover two OLB, don't want to change to 4-3 cover 2 and timmons is a 3-4 OLB but he sucked against the run and we haven't allowed an 100yrd rusher in like what over 50 games now, or close to it.

              Beason would be a Vilma/Lewis like MLB.

              Timmons would still be an OLB, but frankly, I'm tired of hearing the Greg Lloyd comparison. Lloyd was a rare athlete, but It's rare to have someone of his size and speed with the rare power he possessed. I don't think Timmons has his speed, power or will to succeed.

              Frankly I still thinking we'll transition to a 43 and this might be a moot point.
