    Those are 1.43 and 1.45 10 yard splits. Robison is 80-90 pounds heavier and ran 1.49.

    His vertical jump of 40.5" would have been tied for the third best at the combine.


    He's an awesome athlete. I don't see any reason why he couldn't play the James Harrison, DeMarcus Ware, Aldon Smith role in a 3-4. Those guys are practically defensive ends anyway, all they do is rush the passer.
    This man speaks the truth.

    Robison and EG might be a good pair of 3-4 OLB, should we switch. I'd be more concerned about getting a nose and some mikes.

    true, but it is reported that we will keep some kind of 4-3 hybrid, (whatever that means)

    It means we'd have some 3-4 concepts and formations, depending upon down, distance, and offensive personnel packages.

    A little more versatility.

    Do we even have the players to run a 3-4? What would that look like?


    DE - S Floyd
    NT - ??? - Maybe bring back Kevin Williams?
    DE - ???
    OLB - B Robison
    MLB - C Greenway
    MLB - A Cole
    OLB - ??? - Maybe draft Anthony Barr?
    CB - X Rhodes
    CB - ???
    SS - H Smith
    FS - ???



    not a fan of the 3-4 at all....
    I didn't like the 3-4 originally but it has grown on me, it is definitely more flexible than a 4-3 and I like the fact you can disguise your blitzes better IMO. We don't have a lot of guys for a 4-3 also so we could go either way and need about the same number of players probably. Floyd would be a wasted pick though if we move to a 3-4 has too small a frame to play a 5tech and would enveloped by the big OTs and he is not a true NT in a 3-4.
    Kevin Williams is as a very good 3tech but I don't know how he'd do as a NT in a 3-4.
    Great pick with Anthony Barr but he is very raw but great upside, he would be a good fit.

    IMO we would need a complete new line if we went to a 3-4. at least 1 OLB, 1 CB, and 1 S

    If we look at what we need for a 4-3, we need a RDE, NT, OLB, CB ,S. So as I said before not much difference we would need a few more DL for a 3-4 but if you want to make a change with the D we have, now would be the time.

    I would love that pick, I would also love Barr out of UCLA. I think we need Barr a little more than Mosley. I think Cole and Greenway would be serviceable as mikes in a 3-4. We would need a rush OLB like a Barr. We still have Robison and Griffin so it may not really matter who we draft of the two.
