Glenn Dorsey's role in the 3-4

With Vrabel coming in, I think we can officially say we are going to be a 3-4 team in '09. This leaves Dorsey kind of in positional limbo, according to those who know D-Line play better than I.

What will his role be? No way is he going to be a Haloti Ngata type at tackle, so end it is. What is the problem with Dorsey at end in a 3-4? He couldn't possibly be anymore out of position there than the way they used him last year, right? And isn't one of his strengths rushing the passer?

Please enlighten those of us not as adept at d-line, 4-3/3-4 play.

I seem to remember reports before he was drafted that said DT in a 4-3 and DE in a 3-4, not that it's a lock, but it would seem to be more possible than naysayers are allowing us to believe...

I remember him saying he would put on weight to play NT in a 3-4.

The only way that to happen would be if we played ILB, ala Levon Kirkland form the Steeler defenses of the 90's. Interesting thought, but I'm not sold.

He is heavier than Arizona's Darnell Dockett, who played both 1 & 3 gap.

I'm not writing off Dorsey until I see how he plays in the defense. IMO how has the upper-body strength to play NT (he could chuck pretty much any NFL C on their ass), the question is with his lower-body strength & whether/not he can learn the proper technique(s) to play the position.

I hope he has the same attitude he had when the Chiefs drafted him and he is hell bent on being productive next year in the 3-4.

I won't write him off either, all the experts had this guy at the top of their draft boards last year in terms of talent. He's going to have to play end though, no way he's big enough to play NT. I just don't understand insisting on switching to 3-4 when three of your former first rounders don't fit well in that scheme. DJ, Hali, and Dorsey will all have to learn new positions now, not something I'm thrilled about my best three players in the front 7 having to do.
