[QUOTE=palmetto defender;3518934]Dunlap and Griffin are not 3-4 DEs. Too small. 3-4 OLBs? Why? The Jets have 5 OLBs.
Don't like Odrick? He may be gone at 29 or not. Take Lamarr Houston. He's a 3-4 DE type.
The Jets defense ranked 18 in sacks in the regular season. But is it the people or the scheme? Who is this hybrid pass rusher to replace? Pace? He had 8 sacks in 12 games. As previosly stated, the Jets pass defense could not be too shabby ranked number 1.
And just for the record, when the Jets finally figured out what was going on, [B]they were number 1 in sacks in the post season[/B].[/QUOTE]
it's not just the number of sacks, but how many players the jets had to blitz to generate them. also, for every play the jets blitzed and did get a sack, there were plenty of other plays that did not result in a sack and left few defenders to play the pass. the fewer pass rushers needed to generate a pass rush, the better the odds that the pass will be incomplete or result in a turnover. i will say that pace certainly improves the pass rush, but ellis is on his last legs and they desperately need his successor. this draft, which is deep in DL talent, is a gift for the jets to find a quality DE in either round 1 or 2.
