The 2 aren't mutally exclusive. If he's big/strong enough to move the pile he'll get double teamed.
I understand that, but New England uses a 3-4 D, yet they have 4-3 packages. I don't see any reason to slavishly stick with the 3-4. Notice that the 4-3 teams are more successful rushing the passer. Chicago,Seattle,Philly, all those teams use the 4-3 and get it done.
I realize that... I'm simply saying I think BP puts more stock in a guy being strong at the point of attack and being able to command double teams over a NT who is a great pass rusher. It'd be great to have a guy who could do both, but if they WERE mutually exclusive, then I believe BP would go for the OL eater.
