Why do people consistently think akeim hicks will be a nose tackle? The dude is obviously an end in a 3-4. Plus even listing Tez Wilson at any position other than OLB is nuts. I honestly believe the guy is going to be a hell of an edge rusher.

I think Tez will play both, but the Saints list him as strictly as DE, even on their official roster.

I hear you on Hawthorne. He's occasionally played outside, but he's not an edge pass rusher.

In the 4-3 he was a DE definitely will not be playing there in a 3-4

Changed Martez and doubled-up Hicks.

I have a feeling a lot of LBs and DEs will be all over the field

On paper Brougton is a beast 3-4 OLB. 6'5" 270 4.55 40 coming out of TCU last year

This is my breakout/ surprise player for next year

Great to see this all on paper, however I think Tom Johnson will play 3-4 DE, and Rufus isn't on the list

Rob Ryan listed Will Smith as an OLB when he was on the radio Thursday.
