100% hypothetical situation. Let’s say Schiano moves on to Temple, and Day promotes Grinch to full-time DC. Will we see Grinch carry on with Schiano’s scheme of a 4-3 over look with press man/quarters, or will we see what Grinch ran during his time with Wazzou, which was a 3-4 base with mixed zone coverages on the back end?
At first glance, I like having more DLinemen on the field because of our ability to establish the LOS with our front four. But, for off-season’s sake, let’s look at a possible 3-4 front we could implement.
DE - Tyreke Smith
NT - Tommy Togiai
DE - BB Landers
Rush - Chase Young
Mike - Tuf Borland
Will - Baron Browning
Sam - Malik Harrison
Pete Werner would come in on obvious passing downs, but this front 7 intrigues me given different responsibilities. Togiai could dominate as a 1 tech nose. Landers would be amazing as a strong side 5 tech DE. Chase is versatile to be a stand up rush player that can also drop into zone coverages.
Just something to chew on over the course of the next 7 months.
