    This is a listing of teams by draft order in the first round. Does anyone know a complete listing of what form of base defense (4-3 front or 3-4 front) each team runs? I know a few but not sure about a lot of the teams since several teams have switched over the past few years.

    2 Jacksonville Jaguars
    3 Oakland Raiders
    4 Philadelphia Eagles
    5 Detroit Lions

    8 Buffalo Bills

    Why? Seems a generic enough thread to me. And if you think hard enough, you could make a case this is Cowboys-related.

    Besides, it's not like he's battling for forum space right now.

    You can Google most of the details.

    I'll start with KC. I went to their team website and determined that the Defensive Coordinator is Bob Sutton. I Googled Bob Sutton and found that his preferred defense is a 1-gap 3-4; however, he has experience in a 2-gap 3-4 and in the Tampa-2 style of 4-3.

    Next, the Jags site shows Bob Babich as the D-Coordinator. Googling him show that he was a LB coach and DC under Lovie Smith in Chicago. That defense was a Tampa-2 style 4-3.

    Oakland Raiders...
