    3. Ohio State
    4. Washington
    as the final four.
    With Alabama beating Clemson in the NC game.

    Lakeland, Florida USA.
    Coach Dan Mullen has a lot of hard work to do. A lot to rebuild.

    That #3 SEC ranking at LB is pretty generous even with us going to a 3-4.

    I hope that the coaches do not take his position on the roster including Slaton as DT rather than NT. If Slaton does not take a majority of snaps as NT (in place of Clark, not with him), I think our DL is going to underperform. I want to see Slaton with Conliffe a lot.

    Ok, more basic question on the d-line depth chart.
    we are running a 3-4.
    3 down lineman, 4 LBs
    If it is considered two defensive ends and one nose tackle on the d line, what is the difference between the NT and DT?
    Are the ends heavier(Carter, Conliffe, etc.) or the quick ends (CeCe, Zuniga, Clayton, etc)?

    basically, I'm looking for a depth chart geared towards the defense we are playing?
