Hypothetical D-Line Configuration

I was rereading Der Jaeger's excellent post Examining Multiple Defensive Fronts, Featuring Kyle WIlliams and got to wondering about a potential set-up that would play to Kyle's strengths that wasn't discussed (quite possibly because it wouldn't work) that I wanted to air out.

What would happen if we keep WIlliams at NT and have him shoot the strong side A gap and have two tanks playing 5 technique on the ends? In my imagination, that would be Troup and Dareus (if we end up drafting him, mind, this is entirely hypothetical, but you can plug in Carrington or Edwards here if you like). WIlliams is quick enough off the snap to merit being double teamed semi-regularly, which should free up the ILB the run is toward or leave the DE one-on-one with the tackle they're heads-up on, which, if they do their job correctly, would allow them to shed the block and make a play on the ball. If they don't double team him, he's liable to disrupt plays right quick, and with big guys on the ends containing, there'd (hopefully) be nowhere to go.

Just an idea I wanted to put out there. Curious for input.




Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
