Everyone says we need a pass rushing d-lineman. But in the 3-4, u want big lineman. What we need is good pass-rushing linebackers. Foley is good at it, and maybe shaun phillips will be. But iof Derrick Johnson is available with our pick, we should take him. Why? Cuz he was a great blitzing linebacker and great at everything else too.

Agreed. Our Dlinemen are used to free up the LBs for the most part in the 3-4, so it stands to reason that we should get a pass rushing LB as opposed to Dlinemen. If we do draft a Dlinemen he should be like igor or jamal in that they are huge and can occupy blocks.

hey i have idea...why not igor gain more weight to 310 to 320 pounds and cesaire same thing and they all get double up a lot so linebacker will be free to get in and sack.....how that? why not tripe Jamal William type (with good speed and pass rusher) so each of them got double up and linebacker get free to get in then quarterback will have hell of game.....20.5 sacks per game hehehehehi/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gifi/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

also i dont think we need to draft DE becasue casire is developing and we need to check out ball he may be pretty good DE like igor instead waste time to draft DE....i think we need to draf LB's becasue Godfrey and Edward getting old...

Any one remember Dave Ball? He will be the long term answer at pass rusher for DE. It sucks that he couldn't play this year, he would have been a huge help.

He's been mentioned, but he's a third down pass rushing specialist at best.

The Chargers need an every down DE who has pass rushing skills in addition to the most important skill for a 3-4 DE: tieing up multiple blockers on run downs.

He's a LB. And while I think he might be a very good down-linebacker, he's not the kind of player I can envision AJ going after...could be wrong, but he just doesn't fit the mold.

What you need is a big linebackers that can speed rush from the outside, big enough to stop the run and fast enough to cover.

that would be lavar..........of course hes an lb....in a 3-4 thats where your pass rusher is......everyone keeps talking about getting an end and its funny......a 3-4 defense essentially has 3 dts....now they may be ends but they are bigger ends, and not javon kearse or dwight freeney-like......? for thunderstruck....why doesnt he fit the mold?

I dont know what you guys are talking about because Arrington signed a long term extension last year. Anyway if you want a pass rushing LB you want Channing Crowder from Florida. The guy is a beast and will be an all-pro in a few years. I think D Johnson will be gone by our first pick and that we'd only take him anyway if neither of the top 2 WRs were gone already.

Dave Ball needs to spend the off season lifting and getting bigger and stronger if he wants to be the guy opposite Igor. He has good skills a pass rusher so if he can bulk up from his 277 to about 310, he could win that spot. I wonder how his rehab is coming along?
