Great write up Boomer!
I just do not know what we are going to have next year. I would settle for mediocrity at the DE positions if we could get a great push from our tackles. We have been fortunate to have great speed rushers at the DE position, but there is nothing wrong with pushing the pocket back with brute force on the inside.
I think Jabari could be a situational DE, but not an every down DE.
JHD is not the same as Attachou, he was a MLB and an ILB whereas Attachou was an OLB that did more pass rush things than JHD.
You can't just take your best LB and put them at DE every year to make up for DE recruits that don't pan out.
