In the unlikely scenario that Suh falls to us at #5, many fans feel that we should take him. But then we would have Dorsey, T. Jackson, and Suh as our starting DLinemen. Who plays where? We wouldn't have a true NT. What should we do? I don't understand how these questions are still questions when we have a coordinator like Crennel.
I would hope that we would take Suh, as he is a rare player. We should not, however, play him at NT. He's not fit for a 2 gap NT. We also should not move Dorsey inside and have him play 2 gap NT. Neither of these players are suited for that position.
But why couldn't Crennel come up with something better. Why do we have to play with a 2 gap NT. I know that is how he normally plays, but I firmly believe that when you have a great set of players like this scenario could give us, you work your scheme around them, not the other way around. If the unlikely happens and Suh falls to us at #5, we need to get him, and then rework our scheme to fit around the line we have. Maybe playing Dorsey as a 1 gap NT (like Dallas) would be a better idea. It isn't like our ILB's are making plays. Surely a smart coordinator like Crennel could come up with something, rather than playing someone out of position or *gasp* passing on a rare talent.
What do you guys think? What is to stop us from running a 1 gap NT with Dorsey like Dallas does with Ratliff?
