  • Pete talking a move to a 3-4

    Adjust your mocks accordingly. He seems to be saying the strength of the defense is the LB corps (especially with Lofa coming back). My guess is Lawrence Jackson would fit nicely at DE and they would probably use Aaron Curry as a rush linebacker. Wonder if Darryl Tapp could man the other OLB spot?

    Aaron Curry at 3-4 OLB? I don't remember him being a highly touted pass-rusher, although I remember him doing everything well. I'd figure Leroy Hill would be a better rush-backer.

    Haven't kept up on Tapp, but I'd think he could.


    What does this mean for the Seahawks Draft needs?
    Still Team The Ke$ha!!!

      Curry showed some good pressure on the QB this year, unfortunately not a lot else.

      Not sure if they can afford to address the D with their 2 number ones, there seem to be more pressing needs like OT/S/RB. If a Jerry Hughes or an Everson Griffin are there at #38 they probably would be interested.

          DL is fine, especially at 3-4 DE. Cory Redding, Patrick Kerney, and Lawrence Jackson can all play 5-tech. Red Bryant at NT could do the trick too.

          Is that an elite group though? :/

            I could see the Hawks taking Cody in the 2nd with this.

              I would think Colin Cole would be the nose tackle. I could see Redding at end but not Kerney or Jackson. Although, Kerney's probably out the door anyway because of his age.

                I think your right about Cole, Mebane can play there too. I happen to like Lawrence Jackson at the 3-4 DE and i know Pete likes him. To me the LBs are the key to a successful 3-4 and they should be good there. The D was terrible this year so it shouldnt take much to improve.

                As to the question of Mt Cody in the 2nd i still think they have too many other needs.

                  Either that or he's a 3rd down pass rush specialist. I don't see Kerney at 5-Tech at his age. He's a true 4-3 DE and he always has been.

                  On another note, everybody wants to play a 3-4, why not a multiple 46 defense. Show 'em a bunch of looks, a lot of pre-snap movement, rush at least 5 with a lot of Fire Zone blitzes. I admit that zone blitzing is a Lebeau thing, not a Ryan thing, but it's probably necessary to making the 46 work in today's NFL.

                  No excuse for these players being left out of the Hall of Fame:
                  QB Ken Anderson
                  DT Alex Karras
                  LB Chuck Howley

                    If you're talking a Buddy Ryan 46 defense then i would think you need better D-lineman. I'm all for more pressure from all directions. Pete's specialty is defense so it should be interesting.

                      I didn't get the impression that he was saying we were going to be switching to the 3-4, and neither did Eric from TNT.

                        He said as much on KOMO sports the other night. Said he thought the LBs were the strength of the D and wanted to get more of them on the field. Cant be any worse than what they have now.

                          The strength of our D is the linebackers.....in the 4-3. I'm not sure they'll look as good in the 3-4 and our d-line will look even worse. Also, if we were moving to the 3-4 why would we have kept Bradley, who has no experience with the 3-4?

                            I really hope they don't move to a 3-4. The best player on the defense is Mebane and he's so much better at UT than NT. I don't want to see him moved to 5-tech or NT in a 3-4 at all.

                            Plus they don't really have any pass rushers.

                              Pete's response had to do with maximising Aaron Curry and he seemed to think that was the way to go, as a pass rusher i assume. Personally i dont care as long as they get er done.
