    • In the Cowboys’ new 4-3 scheme under Monte Kiffin, there are a few leftover, ill-fitting pieces. The switch could lead to Anthony Spencer seeking work elsewhere from a 3-4 team whose scheme fits his skills best. But it also might affect some younger players such as LB Kyle Wilber, who appears to be a tweener in the 4-3. Could he play linebacker? Hard to say because he missed much of his rookie season with injury. But the early guess is that it’s not his best fit.

    I actually think Wilber might be a better fit for 4-3 SLB.

    IMO, Albright is the one who is a 3-4 LB who might not fit all that well into a 4-3 alignment. He might fit best as a DE in the new alignment but will need to put on 10-15 pounds to do it.

    OTOH, he may have enough agility and strength to also compete as a 4-3 SLB but I think he may be a tick slow in coverage at 4.85 40, unfortunately.

    Albright could do some things on the DE, Lessimore is a good fit for a 4/3, Ratliff, Spencer, Lee and Ware fit perfectly.

    Defensivly Dallas has to add at least 2 more safties in the NFL Draft/Free Agency.

    Can he bring an imaginary QB and coach with him?

    Teams running the Tampa 2 defense have a history of using light DEs.

    Highly doubt this happens. MLB in a 4-3 isnt effective without DT's to keep O lineman off him. Right now they lack that unless they find somebody in FA.

    I was never s fan of the Wilber pick anyway. I didn't like him in the 3-4 either. Wasted pick IMO.

    I am sure he can find an Internet based coach somewhere here on the Zone. You know, coaching is overrated, there is no real need to actually meet him/her in person. It can all be done virtually....

    How fitting. Jerry imagines himself to be a GM and a coach. I guess he needs a player who imagines he has a girlfriend too as well as one who imagined himself tackling Crimson Tide players.

    Maybe he can bring an imaginary GM with him to run this team.

    Albright had really good measureables except in the forty.

    Check out his Short Shuttle (20s), 3-cone and 10-yard times. All very good, especially considering his size. He also had a very good vert which is another indicator of athleticism.

    He was coming off a season ending leg injury when he participated in the pre-draft workouts. It's possible that he is actually faster.
