Actually he was.a much better player with the Broncos 3-4 scheme than he was with the Saints 4-3.

The obvious choice is Will Smith.

Re: _____________ doesn't fit a 3-4 scheme!!!!

Like lsutiger fan pointed out, Bunkley came from a 3-4 and dominated, so he'll be perfect for our scheme

My choice is Will Smith
However at the minute you could say Junior Galette because we've never seen him play coverage and he'd be the OLB in the system, so coverage skills are a must

Martez wilson is a former LB so he can play coverage, We haven't seen galette do it yet

I think people might've forgotten about it since the Broncos went to a 4-3 base defense this season, so they might automatically think that he was a 3-tech 4-3 DT with them. But yeah, Bunkley was highly successful as the NT for that 3-4 defense they had in 2011, and I remember reading articles about him - when he was signed by the Saints - that quoted Broncos' defensive players saying that Bunkley was one of the biggest reasons why their defense was so good and why their OLBs and DEs were finding ways to get to the QB. They even tried to re-sign him even with the change to a 4-3, but the Saints were offering more, so Bunkley decided to take their offer.


Anyway, Will Smith doesn't fit the system as he is too small for a DE position and doesn't have the explosiveness nor the coverage skills to be an OLB either. Galette and McBride are two other DEs who may not fit the system, which is why they might not get re-signed this offseason, but Galette is the more likely candidate to continue with the Saints as he does have pass rushing abilities superior to McBride. Ellis doesn't fit in the system, but he wouldn't be re-signed even if he did. Vilma, Humber, Shanle, and Casillas are all LBs who we probably won't see coming back as they are either undersized, too slow, without coverage skills or just plain suck at life (-->SS). Casillas could be re-signed on the cheap even though he is an UFA because he didn't have any suitors last offseason when the Saints originally didn't hand him a RFA tender and he was free to meet with other teams. And on the backfield it'll be more about salary cap restrictions if we see any cuts, since the base 3-4 doesn't really affect that side of the defense - more so what the new DC and Secondary coaches decide to run as the main coverage scheme. But Harper might be gone since they could save $3.5M by doing so, and if they could bring in a FA safety like Byrd - there really wouldn't be any need to keep Harper on the roster with his limitations and high cap number.

That awkward moment when an attempt at understanding bites you in the azz.

How many DT/NT does a 3-4 team usually carry?
