    What does Kiffin say?

    I think Rat/Hatcher will be the DT's.

    For once, Jerry may not be wrong. Hatch, if I'm not mistaken, is only signed through 2013. He could learn under Hatch/Rat.

    I can too.

    I don't think Crawford has the burst to be a better-than-average 4-3 DE.

    I think this team has a boat-load of 4-3 DT's...

    Lissmore
    Spears
    Hatcher
    Ratliff
    Crawford

    4-3 DE?

    Ware

    ...And not much else.

    In this day and age, you rotate out your DT's so you end up with 3 or 4 guys as de-facto starters.

    I like to see them give him a shot at left end and if that doesn't work move him inside. Or use him like the Giants used Tuck. Outside on run downs and inside on the nickel.

    Right now he is built more like an end. Have to see how big he comes in at camp.

    I agree with you. I'm think DE is a much bigger need than DT at this point.

    Right. Crawford is the most suited for 4-3 DE of that group. So why stick him in the DT rotation?

    Chances are he's just repeating what Kiffen told him. Or what anyone with 2 eyes can see.

    You're right in that he's probably better suited for being a 4-3 DE than the others.

    But he's probably not the best option for being a starting 4-3 DE.

    Not in a Giants style 4-3, but he is very similar to a Strong-Side DE in the Kiffin style defenses.

    I think he can player either the 3-tech DT or the SDE.

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    I just think the Cowboys will come up with a better option at DE.

    I like that idea. I think the Cowboys should have been doing it with Rat for a long time.

    he does not have the ability of Tuck though, I don't think, so who knows if it would work as well.

    Jerry can't just tell if Crawford can play dt. Either marinelli or kiffin had to bring this up

    Crawford is a good asset for us going forward.
    He's already shown he can play in this league and he could have some versatility in this scheme.

    If 4-3 DE is the question, then Ezekial is the Ansah.

    :laugh1: Nice.
    Could be true too.

    High risk though
    Huge upside.
