Looking at this draft we got two D-lineman that are 4-3 DT we will convert to 3-4 ends and a Tampa cover-2 style CB.
We didn't invest in the O-line much but did grab a speedy WR and a H-back.
Considering Timmons would ba a natural 4-3 OLB, Gay would fit nicely in tampa-2, and we are getting rid of blocking fullbacks for pass catching H-backs I think it is time to consider that Tomlin is slowly morphing this team toward his style.
The draft we made is not a pound the ball and throw deep draft, it looks more like a West-Coast Hybrid draft. Also the defense is slowly gaining the ability to also Hybrid itself.
We aren't the same team we used to be. But then we didn't run well last year and we played more deep safeties (and will need to do so again). We are a QB driven team with a flexible defense, and we just won the Super Bowl.
Then again, we drafted a mauler at Gaurd and the Tank (maybe an Alstott role?) so maybe I'm full of crap. What do you think?
