    I think the Dallas Cowboys' four-man defensive line in their new 4-3 scheme looks very good as long as the four starters are healthy (DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer at defensive end and Jay Ratliff and Jason Hatcher at defensive tackle). I think it has a good chance to work. The question is how much they have behind the starting four, and that's where 2012 third-round draft pick Tyrone Crawford could factor in. After bulking up to nearly 300 pounds last season to play as a 3-4 defensive lineman, Crawford is back down to his college weight of 285 and playing the 4-3 defensive end position he played at Boise State. Per Todd Archer:

    He played in every game but he did not have a sack. He was credited with 33 tackles and five quarterback pressures.

    “I felt like I had more in me,” Crawford said. “I could’ve made a lot more plays and helped this team out a lot more.”
