Skills vs. size are two very different things. I just don't like the skills that Kampman has translated to the 3-4.

I think he's going to be a dominant bull rusher, but the other skills have to develop (which isn't guaranteed to happen). And he can stop the run, but he can't let himself get lost in space and he might be too slow to catch runners on the outside.

Kampmann makes his money with leverage. He's one of the best leverage bullrushers in the game. Reminds me of a poor man's Strahan.


With the switch to rushbacker, its gonna be much harder for him to use leverage, because he's not squatted down, and isn't short enough to get under pads like Harrison and Woodley of the Steelers do.

And thats just the pass rushing aspect of it. How fluid are his hips in coverage and run stuffing?


I think he's much better suited as a natural base LE in a 4-3, but we'll see how he fares. He's the one real question mark to this transition.

That's what I am curious to see too.. I want to see how he does standing up and in coverage and basically reading his keys up right..

Arizona's defense was basically a 3-4 in a 4-3 base. That's what Pendergrast runs. It's a hybrid. The Chiefs will likely run the same thing with more emphasis on 3-4 fronts.

I see them moving Dorsey around the DL. He'll play both NT and DE, I see that as the most effective way to utilize him until he can handle the NT duties full-time. He could definitely develop into a Casey Hampton. But he could be a Jay Ratliff in the mean-time.

The Chiefs need to focus on getting a few 3-4 DE's and OLB's. Plenty of options in UFA, but they should also probably be the ones to pull the Jarron Gilbert trigger in the 2nd round if Tyson Jackson isn't there.
