"As the Green Bay Packers brace to enter the brave new world of the 3-4 defense, the longtime defensive line coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers has a word of warning for holdover starters Ryan Pickett, Cullen Jenkins and Johnny Jolly.

"If he's got selfish guys, Dom won't be playing the 3-4. Period," John Mitchell said Tuesday at the Super Bowl, referring to Green Bay's new defensive coordinator, Dom Capers. "Because the defensive line is not going to get a lot of sacks or pub.

"You've got to have three guys who don't care who gets the publicity. All they want to do is be good football players and win."

Pickett, who will enter his ninth season, will be asked to be Green Bay's version of nose tackle Casey Hampton.

Pickett has been that type of guy his whole career. Jenkins is a pretty quiet guy and should do well also.

What I liked in the article is the description of the difference between the two and one gap systems. IMO the one gap currently fits our players better. Smaller and quicker. But we would need a DE opposite of Jenkins.

Perhaps that other DE could be Tyson Jackson, DT, LSU. Could trade into the late first round and pick him up.

I am not sure if Jackson would be as good in the 3-4 Dline as Jerry or Marks. They have about the same size and speed, but Jerry and Marks have both played inside at DT while Jackson has been an outside DE.

from what i've read jackson is by far the best 3-4 de in the draft this year.
He'll prob be a 5-tech de.. he can hold his ground, bull rush the qb and had perfect size

I have seen that he is the only True DE with size. But the size of all three is close. I have seen the others at DT which is closer to the DE in a 3-4. Jackson I've only see outside. I may well be wrong, but that is just what I've seen.

None of the thee are worth a #9 pick and I see less of a chance of Jackson being available for us in the 2nd as the others. But then again. Thompson has never been predictable.

Notice how I said that we could trade into the first round. I didn't say that we should take him at #9.
