    If not a QB then a S or DT. I like Fairley (sp?) from Auburn, but I think he's just a Junior and might stay for another year.

    If we get a coach that runs the 3-4, which most teams have gone to. I don't see us drafting another lineman in the first for a while. Brown could play the NT spot. If not QB and we do make the switch to 3-4, then we need to go after a dominant LB.

    There's no way Brown could play NT, he's too fragile, and a bit undersized as well. If we switched to 3-4 we would basically have to rebuild our entire front 7.

    True. However, I think the 3-4 is the answer to many of our defensive problems. It allows for so much more versatility and confusion against opposing offenses.

    I wouldn't mind a switch to a 3-4 but I don't think we could do it all in one off-season, we'd have to gradually build towards it, because really who from our front 7 would work in a 3-4? Our tackles are all too small, Jason Jones would probably make a good end though. Tulloch is not a good enough athlete, I don't know how well McRath would transition to a new scheme. Witherspoon would probably be a good fit though. Babin and Ball I can't see working our very well, because well I think they're pretty mediocre as it stands.

    Here's the thing, do we really want to be one of those teams that switch to the 3-4 just because? Belichick ran the 4-3 for most of last year, because his team's skill set dictated that. He fits his scheme to his personnel, not the other way around. Many teams try and force scheme changes, and they suffer because of it. We just have to adjust according to our talent.

    CB or SS. Our secondary is horrible.

    We're going to probably be drafting in the Top 10. Hopefully we can get Patrick Peterson or Prince Amukamara.. because there isn't any good SS available that early.

    We will be in the top 10 for sure but it's too early to tell who we would take or what we would do yet.

    The only question is...

    Offense ~ :goodbad: ~Defense

    Can we take an unprecedented leap and draft a head coach?!

    Switching to the 3-4 won't solve anything. A well-run 4-3 can be just as effective.

    Besides, the Titans are so entrenched in the 4-3 that it would take a MAJOR overhaul to run a productive 3-4. At least half the defensive players would probably have to be replaced.

    I agree. The only front 7 member that would be suitable in a 3-4 would be Brown at end. Jones is undersized, and doesn't play big enough for a 3-4 DE. If there are 2 teams that should not go to the 3-4 in the near future, they are the Titans and Colts.
