    sure, why not, Ellis seems like a very lucky guy.

    by the way it's not like i hate this player, in fact far from it, i just don't see the value in taking him at an elite draft slot.

    [QUOTE=lageman4ever;2331975]Going to the 4-3 would solve a number of problems:

    bad rushing defense -> now we have 2 DT to stop the run

    mis-matched players in DRob and Vilma -> now they fit

    can't find a 350 lb NT -> don't need one anymore


    It makes absolute perfect sense to draft Ellis and convert to the 4-3. But of course stubborn Mangini won't do it . . .[/QUOTE]

    The more I think about, the more that it seems like a perfect solution.

    A 4-3 DLine of Shaun Ellis, DRob, Sedrick Ellis, and Coleman will be a big & strong line. Shaun Ellis will be the lightest at 285. They'll essentially have 3 300lbers on the DLine. All 4 are really strong, and DRob & Sedrick Ellis are both penetrating DTs, so the "speed" rusher DE is not necessarily needed. Plus, Mosley & Pouha offer good DT depth.

    That front 4 will create matchup problems and a LB corp of Harris, Vilma, and Thomas will benefit greatly from it. In the 4-3, the Jets Defense will finally not be undersized.

    But like you said, Mangini won't do it.

    I agree, but like you said, it's a moot point. He's not giving up the transition to the 3-4.

    [QUOTE=Beerfish;2331883]I still wish the Jets were a 4-3 team, put DRob and this guy together and you'd have a dynamic middle of the defense.[/QUOTE]

    Exactly what I've been feeling/saying.
