Anthony Spencer DE in college

Haloti Ngata DT in college
Richard Semour (DT in college DE when for Pats 3-4)
Glen Dorsey DT in college
I can go on and on but the overwhelming vast majority of the outside front 7 players played a different position in college. Most 3-4 defensive ends where taller defensive tackles. Most 3-4 OLBs where smaller defensive ends in college

Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
He is 90% right tho.
Georgia ? they just started running this. Justin Houston was drafted in 2011 he plays OLB for the chiefs. Is playing well... he played DE in a 4-3 while at georgia.
LSU plays with 4 down linemen your just flat out wrong here.
Notre Dame has produced 0 nlf caliber 3-4 OLBs or 3-4 DEs .

Maryland almost seems a shadow of the football program it was when I went there. Chuck Faucette and our 4-3 FTW.
Other teams may successfully convert 43DEs to OLBs but there have to be examples where players have struggled, failed, or simply don't dominate as they did hand in dirt a little bigger, playing their natural position, without having to even think about it. Why did they fail...was it always 4-3 coaches, or were some poor candidates to convert; just why dont they all get 10+ sacks?
Those teams that hit homers on stud OLB's Ware etc, did they have a working 34 in place for them to integrate into, mentors in place perhaps? Or were they all but expected to spearhead the transition as rookies, like Kerrigan or even Rak in his second season?
Coaching may have a lot to do with it, but some guys just want to get after the QB and do it much better than they do in space covering the flat. Some guys just dont have the hips. Rak looks stiff to me.
Any time I see Kerrigan in coverage, I know we are not going to sack the QB. Is Kerrigan in space, what is best for our team?
I for one think the answer is no. QB's must love it.
