    You guys both contribute some good things to the message board.

    I would encourage you not to let yourselves get sucked into this level of banter.

    No team in football has the 8 DL we had in those days.

    And NFL players are bigger than ever.

    Smallish guys are going to have shortened careers. Heck even some of those guys did.

    As a note:

    Melton is making a Pro Bowl and stands ot make as much if not more money than Anthony Spencer.

    He is a great fit for any defense because he is a really gifted player.

    We aren't landing him.

    If we could make him work under the cap this year, he wouldn't fit next year. He is simply too expensive.

    I would prefer him over Spencer for Kiffin's defense.

    I think if Crawford plays at the same 275 pounds that he played at when he was at Boise State, he would make a good strong side DE in a 4-3. His heavy hands and ability to set the edge would be a good asset.

    If he remains at 290, like he was this year, or gets larger, he really would only be a fit inside. I think I prefer him at 275 out at end, where his strength and quickness would be more of using his strengths as a player.

    There are many variations but generally modern 4-3 use big SSDEs who are much like Crawford. Huge sack totals are merely a plus but they have to be able to control the LOS and stop the run.

    I could see Crawford playing SSDE/QDT by downs.

    Definitely a better natural athlete.

    May well cost more too.

    I love all the local high school kids so it'd be nice; but probably not very realistic.
