Re: Personnel for a 4-3?
For those who think we don't have the personnel to run a 4-3:
All if not 90 percent of our 1st round defensive players played a 4-3 in college, Don't forget that we will be losing Kiesel, Hampton, possibly letting Ike Taylor go to free up cap space and this will help in being able to then later sign to fill whatever we need to run a 4-3 next year.
I don't think you draft 4-3 if you don't intend on using it eventually. The 3-4 defense isn't Tomlins preferred scheme and I'm sure he's been wanting to make his own imprint on this team. He started it by drafting a 4-3 linebacker in Timmons.
Edit: Losing James Harrison will also free up cap space to fill in positions.
