The difference now is, they actually have a guy that is versatile to be in both packages.
This is not exactly accurate.
They align in 3-4 and 4-2-5 (nickel) quite a lot, but never in 4-3, we never have 3 linebackers in the backfield (unless you count Harvey-Clemons as a LB, but he's a hybrid nickel player IMO). That makes quite a difference against the run.

Now, you do have point saying Payne can be a nose in a 3-4. But I'd like to see what Ryan Anderson can do as a Sam or Will LB.

when I watched those games, I remember thinking I wish we had a D lineman with a motor like that. God I hope he plays like that for us !

Re: All about Da'Ron Payne

One thing on the Alabama guys is they will set the tone in the defensive locker room. And that, I think, is a real good thing. Bring a little Nick Saban attitude to our locker room!

One thing I do know is Anderson is not a OLB in a 3-4. They're wasting their time playing him there.

How about this? Not every high round pick pops their first year. It's doesn't mean they can't be a good player (look at our RT, Moses looked shitty year 1 and now he is a really good RT).

Let players develop. Right now, we have Preston, Zack, Mason and RK as the starting four. I like Anderson and, while he may never be flashy, I will be happy if he eventually steps in and plays like a solid every down starter.

It's great if rookies come in as plug and play, but that just not how it works for the vast majority of them.
