cribbs is the man Posted April 12, 2010 Report Share Posted April 12, 2010 I saw talk of us having interest in Penn State's 6'5 305 pound DE Jared Odrick since he is an "ideal" 3-4 DE. Given that the defensive line in a 3-4 is mainly there to occupy blockers and free up linebackers to make plays, it made me wonder how much impact Odrick could possibly have as a first round pick? I understand there has to be some skill involved to be a 3-4 DE, but how important is that position to our defense? Wouldnt it be smarter just to find big bodies in late rounds to "occupy blockers" and go after more important positions? or am I missing something...
