Paging Crack - 3-3-5 Base Revisited


Crack - I posted a comment on the bottom of your 3-3-5 base post from last week - but chances are it won't be noticed as doesn't appear to be showing up as a new comment.  I really liked that post and think you are very knowledgeable about the defensive scheme (and the necessary players) that Rex wants to implement here.

Your premise was really based on beefing up the Defensive Line and finding a hybrid pass rushing linebacker to move around the middle of the field and disgusing looks where his primary responsibility is to get to the QB and create havoc in the backfield. 

You never mentioned a pass rushing Defensive End or the type of Defensive End who could take up 2 blockers at the point of attack - my guess is because at 30 we weren't expected to have any of the top flight Defensive Ends be available - hence better to focus on the NT with that pick and then look for the hybrid LB with our second pick.

Obviously it is too early to know what our DL will look like come Opening Day - as we may or may not bring back Shawn Ellis (I think we do bring him back), Trevor Pryce (I think he comes back for a very reasonable 1 year deal - to have a chance at winning the Super Bowl in NY), Kris Jenkins (I think zero shot he is back - nor do I think would make sense to have him back) and even Jason Taylor (don't be shocked if he comes back for 1 more year to try and win a Super Bowl and to be a tutor to Wilkerson).  Plus you don't know who is going to be available in Free Agency or via trades. 

What is your take on Wilkerson as a Defensive End in our defense and what do you see us doing going forward? I find it very hard to believe that the Jets don't aggressively pursue Kendrick Ellis with their next pick as I think plugging him into the NT role is going to really give Rex the horses he needs.

And in your view, does Wilkinson fit into this 3-3-5 base defense that you are expecting?
