Question.. where do the pieces fit?
I need a little help here.. I've dropped this question into the chat room but no one seems to have a good answer...
Everyone is declaring this draft a success, and prior to the draft the consensus was that we needed two starters out of the first two picks. So where do these players start?
Can you run a base 4-3 defense that looks like, D-Line: Ellis, Ferguson, Glover, Spears, LBs: Ware, Nguyen, Burnett .. ?
Everyone seems to be talking about our base defense being 3-4, but it would seem to me that takes a starter off the field. Don't give me rotation either, we needed to draft for starters.
So questions, can Spears play the end spot in a 4-3? Can we get the best front 7 players on the field or are we going to be stuck with a Singleton on the field while one of our draft picks sits on the bench?
