    He played DE his first year some. And he played SDE. i saw him play against Atl that year at SDE and came away impressed with his strength. Obviously he can play the 3 as well although he's not as quick as Melton...was anyway. I just see him as a prototypical SDE. He has a bit of quick twitch but he'll never be a huge rush guy. Better bull rush than anything else.

    I'm thinking they may want to give him another shot at WDE and start Holloman at SLB. Not having Ware changes the landscape. But it's just speculation.

    Spencer is not, right now, healthy and I don't expect him to. Crawford is best rushing upfield. I expect him to be used at both DE spots and rotating in to the 3 tech.

    In this scheme Crawford is a Strong Side LE on 1 & 2 downs.. on 3rd down an inside rusher.

    I don't think people understand how worthless Hayden was. The scheme asks for a guy that can demand double teams in the run game to keep the LB clean. He was always singleblocked and easily at that. The scheme also asks for a guy quick enough to run stunts and the like. He was so slow off the line as to be pitiful.

    Hayden was flat terrible and hopefully we upgrade the roster so that he isn't even depth. He was like Lynn Scott or Keith Davis at safety. Just awful but at least those two helped on teams.

    Sounded like Selvie is starter at RE and Lawrence comes in on Nickel. Don't know who is LE if Crawford is inside on 3rd. Spencer? Selvie? Mincey?

    That's good news considering that he said in that DMN interview he's playing 3 technique!

    Totally agree. SDE is the need right now and the best fit for him, but with Marinelli's scheme he can rotate to different position to give the offense different looks on different downs.

    As of this moment:

    LDE – Selvie / Lawrence / Mincey
    3 Tech - Melton / Bass
    1 Tech - McClain / Hayden / Pick from tomorrow
    RDE - Crawford / Spencer / Pick from tomorrow

    I don't see any way he makes the final 53. His roster spot is easily upgraded. If all we did was improve the production from his spot to average it would be very noticeable.
