If we were to switch to a 4-3, I'd like to see this
DL: Hali-Powe-Poe-draft pick/FA
LBs: DJ-draft pick/FA-Houston. You could keep DJ in the middle if you wanted I suppose.
Ideally, I'd like to switch to a Phillips 3-4 and look like this
DL: Either DraftPick/FA/Jackson-Powe/Poe/FA-Poe/DraftPick
Either switch is going to require us getting at least 1 pass rusher via the draft or FA. If we switch to a 1-gap, we maintain continuity with our LBs, and the difficulties for Poe decrease dramatically IMO. Additionally, there is a very very slim chance that Jackson improves in a 1-gap. Doubtful but stranger things have happened.
