Is it sacreligious to suggest a 4-3 for next year?

Before you boo me out of the room, hear me out. I've heard it said many a time, get your best athletes on the field at all costs. Let's look at this rather simply. How potentially scary would a D-line of Woodley, Hood, McLendon and Heyward be, coupled with Timmons, Worilds and Spence (or Williams, whoever rises to the top). On the one hand, it may limit Woodley's pass-rushing effectiveness, but he's certainly strong enough to hold the point of attack and get through to the backfield from a 3-point stance. If I recall correctly, he made a living out of it at Michigan. My biggest question mark would be Worilds' suitability as an inside backer. Seems to me he may work just fine in a run-stuffing role, and leave most of the pass coverage duties to the other two, but could also be an intimidating and big-hitting presence in a zone defense. I also wonder if the brilliant mind that is Coach Dad might find a whole new set of toys (read: havoc-wreaking schemes) to introduce in a new structure like this. So, interested in whether a few of you have any thoughts on this premise?
