I think Glover will struggle to find playing time at 3-4 end....he'll be a NT, and he'll either earn his time over Ferguson, or he'll be used in long yardage or in the 4-3 changeup.
A probowl DT in the 4-3 doesn't automatically start at DE in the 3-4...I think Glover's days will be numbered eventually due to his size, which has been an issue even in the 4-3 in short yardage and goal line...he gets killed by the double team.
