But Joseph is a prototypical NT
[/quote]What tells you that, his zero combined years playing in a 3-4 defense???
Other than his size, nothing says 3-4 about the guy. He's been playing great as a 4-3 1/2 gap hybrid with Canty so far. Personally Id RATHER have a 1 gap and a 2 gap DT, but Canty and LJ are playing fine in the hybrid set
his size, stength, and what he does best is take on mutliple blockers. Hes perfect
I mean theres no real difference between a 4-3 DT and a 3-4 NT, besides size and strength. He has it. Hes one of the strongest guys in the NFL - thats what he was scouted as. Most places had him listed as a NT coming out
I mean Skins gave Cofield a huge contract to go play there and he never did before
[/quote]Thats like saying 4-3 and 3-4 LBs are the same
He has the size to be a 3-4 NT at 6'4 330+ but he was a 2 gap/3 tech (mostly pass rushing) DT in college and now he's being used as a 1/3 tech hybrid, just like Canty. Coefield was our 1 tech DT whose role is 'similar' to a 3-4 DT in the same way a 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE have 'similar' roles
I like keeping 3-4 guys as 3-4 guys, and 4-3 guys as 4-3 guys.... Clint Sintim is still too fresh in my memory
well besides size and strength what do u think the difference is between 3-4 NT and 4-3 DT?
Its not much of a difference. Hes not a solid 3 tech every snap... they move, blockers come from all directions
