  • Are we going to see more 4-3?

    Considering all the defensive line picks in the draft, does anyone besides myself think it entirely possible we may employ a hybrid defense, running a mix of 3-4 and 4-3 on a regular basis?

    If the Pats sign Taylor[I am all but certain they will], he could stand up in the 3-4 or go down in the 4-3, Seymour is a 3-4 end or 4-3 tackle, our DL has tons of depth for both systems.

    As for as LB goes, I think you could put Mayo inside or outside in a 4-3, the guy is faster than people give him credit for. I think he ran a 4.6 40 last year.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a lot of Nickel and Dime, using a 4 man line and 2 LBs, to take advantage of our [now] deep secondary.

    Thoughts?

    Not really. Belichick said Brace could play NT and DE for them. In goal line/short yardage, the Pats will be sick, but I don't think we'll see more 4-man fronts because of the draft. Pryor and Richard are likely to end up on the PS anyway...

      Mayo isn't faster than people give him credit for. He's just plain fast. That 4.6 is actually a 4.5 and he plays up to that as well.

      As far as the 4-3 looks, I think we could see a bit of that this year. We've played with it before but never really kept it around for good. With the personal we've drafted, we could bring those looks back.

        Maybe some looks I'm sure. Our base set will undoubtedly still be a 3-4, but showing alot of different looks is always a good thing. I agree that our goaline should be nasty with Wilfork and Brace in the middle...that's alot of beef.
