He's 311 pounds? Seems a little light for a pure nosetackle (you at least want a guy to be around 325 pounds), but Scouts Inc doesn't have a full review out on him yet. Then again Jay Ratliff is 303 pounds so you never know.

Nevertheless Williams is currently graded out as a first round prospect.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

Lets just run the 5-2 defense and get it over with. It's like the 3-4 but the OLB's are DE's. You play 3 DT's and keep AH from being the NT to keep him happy. It would look like this.

McIntosh & Fletcher at LB

RE Carter, DT Haynesworth, NT Daniels/Montgomery, DT Griffin, LE Orakpo

We would play to the strength of our defense which is the defensive line by keeping our best players on the field. Orakpo would have his hand back in the dirt most of the time. We would cover up our lack of depth at LB. Just like the 3-4 we could drop D-Linemen into zones, run stunts etc. I think that it is a good fit but then again what do I know? I'm just a fan with some football coaching books, a dream, and a keyboard.

Also if you play a team like Tennessee or Dallas, the QB can always drop back and roll out of the pocket and run. But other than those reasons, ya I've always wondered why there aren't any 5-2 defenses in college or pro football.
Not necessarily, like I said before you can always drop a defensive lineman into coverage just like with the 34. Also if you get enough pressure it really doesn't matter who is open. As far as scrambling QB's are concerned you can always spy them. I would not run this defense exclusively, but on most 1st and 2nd downs and in obvious running situations.

Re: Shanahan wants a 3-4 Defense

I"m for any defense that makes critical stops in the 4th quarter and causes the occasional turnover.

You mean the opposite of the Greg Blache defense?
