Gus Bradley Says Jaguars Defense Will Be 4-3, 3-4 Mixture
New Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley held his NFL Scouting Combine media session Saturday and it appears he will run a mixture of 4-3, 3-4 defenses.
"You see a lot of teams that may be a 3-4 and then on third down they show some 4-3 principles," Bradley said. "Where on first and second down, we'll have some 4-3 and 3-4 principles.
"Some offenses say here's our run-game attack for a 4-3 team, here's what we're going to as a run game for a 3-4 team. When they see us do both, the run game shrinks down a little bit. The philosophy behind it, defensively, is that it pares it down and becomes easier for us as far as the style of runs that we see. We like to be able to rush out of both."
"We like to have those rush-type people on the right side. We call it the Leo end," Bradley said. "We've had some success up in Seattle with them -- the Chris Clemons', the Bruce Irvins. So we'll take a hard look at those guys in the draft -- the outside linebacker types.
"We have a philosophy that we'd like to eventually get to. That's getting those ends on the perimeter that can rush, not only on first and second down, but third down as well."
