In a 3-4, you need elite pass rushing talent at the OLB position. You don't have to have elite pass rushers anywhere else. Aaron Smith, Brett Keisel, and Casey Hampton weren't guys who are going to get you a ton of sacks. Maybe 10 between the three of them. Their pressure comes from dependable linemen who can attack, creative blitz schemes that create pressure from the middle, and outstanding edge rushers (which we have).
We're not as far off as you think. Changing scheme alone is going to go a really long way.
