    considering the Pats like to go between the 3-4 and 4-3, I think the Patriots should look into drafting a pure 4-3 pass rushing DE, possibly with their 3rd round pick. lets face it none of their Dlinemen are that fast and sometimes when they go with the 4-3 the pass rush isnt always there. Just imagine if the Pats could find like a Mark Anderson or Elvis Dummervil situational pass rush type type later in the draft who can get you close to double digit sacks. I think it could really improve on what the Pats can do.

    I think that's exactly what Jarvis Green is.

    Green is a decent pass rusher, but Im talking about a pure speed pass rusher. Its hard to always find guys who are versatile, this guy would be someone who can just get after the QB when the team switches to a 4-3.

    Maybe if Pats select a Jarvis Moss or a Antony Spencer, they will have a guy who pass the rusher in a 3-4 and in a 4-3..

    Because drafting a rusher who will only play on 4-3 situations (3rd down) would not pass BB's "versatility" test .

    If this is meant to be an April Fool's post, it's clever, but rather late in the day.

    Exactly. So, what RT26 is asking is to have a replacement for TBC ar OLB, who can play DE on 4-3.

    Btw, Jarvis Green plays also DT in 4-3 formation.

    Are you sure? Cuz that makes no sense. Green is listed at 285 while Seymour is listed at 310 and Warren is listed at 300. Last time I checked the bigger players play DT in the 4-3 so it should be Green and Warren at DE and Seymour and Wilfork at DT.
