There is so much wrong in this thread lol. Bunkley did not play in a 3-4 in Denver. Denver played a 4-3. Von Miller wasn't a rush 3-4 LB. He played as a regular OLB in a 4-3, then would drop down as a DE in passing situations.
Lofton is perfectly suited to play as a MLB in a 3-4. I really don't know what that one guy is talking about lol.
Will Smith is like 290 pounds and is pretty strong. I don't think he will be back, but I think he has the size and power to play DE in a 3-4.
Hope the person who said Vilma and Shanle are being moved inside was trolling. Hawthorne will be moved inside. Someone else said Junior and Lofton didn't fit a 3-4 lol. This 3-4 thing is really screwing with people.
I think Hicks could play NT or DE, but I think he could be a Richard Seymour type dominant player at DE. I wasn't that excited about the options the Saints had for the draft before, but now I'm pumped for all the possibilities. I agree with the person that said Jordan, Jessie Williams, and Hicks up front. Other options in the first round or Minter, Teo, Vaccaro, and any one of the many pass rushing OLB's available. My friends and I said all year that this defense was more built for a 3-4.
