^ I know. I know they said it but I have to keep reminding myself that the coach's seem content with our O-linemen we have now. They must be making sure there is not a issue with changing scheme's on defense.

Isn't Vonnie Holliday a singer?

I agree on both parts. I would love to see us bringing as many OL as we have DL. I do think bringing DL in is a way to say to AH that we will have a plan if he doesn't show up in shape. I hope that Capers long term is an excellent draft pick, maybe even getting playing time at the RT spot this year.

We also love ex-1st rounders. I think Smoot had the stat before of how many of our players were drafted in the first round, and you can add V. Holliday to the list.

For those keeping score we currently have 15 OL on the roster, 12 DL.

The DL number doesn't count guys like Carter, Jarmon, or Rak who are listed as LB.

If all goes well and everyone comes in healthy I sit back and think about the 2010 Redsksin D-line and wonder how nasty it can be.... Daniels, Kemoeatu, Haynesworth. All I keep seeing is the pockets for the QB's collapsing constantly. I know AH is supposed to fill in at NT but I look at the idea of Daniels, Kemoeatu, Hanesworth and think putting Orakpo on one side rushing and just about anyone of the other and OL will be saying just stay in the shot gun and get rid of the ball fast.

I think your scenario is right, and we will have a flex front, where we may show 3 DL and then have Orakpo or the other side OLB walk up pre snap to change the look. I am excited about the DL potential

It's definitely going to look different than the defense we've seen the last couple of years. Not as predictable.

We really have to go back a-ways to a time when we had a D/L this flexible. Will be interesting to see out of all the new additions, just which one's make the final roster.

Depending on how much the 3-4 is going to be deployed during the course of the season, there may be more of a need to keep D/L - L/B types, the breakdown will certainly be worth watching. For far too long we have been less than enthused about the D/L this time of year.

Too many question marks all over the D-line. I do like the low risk high reward type signings but I wonder if any of these guys can actually play. Daniels can't run around my mother so he's a complete waste of time and a roster spot. Kemoeatu didn't play last year and is coming off a serious injury. Haynesworth may or may not be in shape. Carriker also is coming off an injury and even when he was played he really showed nothing. Jarmon is also coming off an injury. Not sure how Carter fits in with the new defense. Holiday is got to be on the other side of 35 and has bounced around the last hfew years. I'd say the only guy that we can 100% count on is Orakpo.

agreed. Why change the D.......Our offensive line was offensive. Change that.

Anytime you change a D there are going to be question marks. That shouldn't scare you away from making a change though.
