Raiders to use more 3-4 looks this year but still will use the 4-3 as the base defense



 According to Bill Williamson Tom Cable said we will use more 3-4 looks this year which is great to here since were really building towards a good 3-4. This probably mean to more zone defense as well since 3-4 teams use a lot of zone coverage. Also according to Bill we will try to take Bruce Campbell with our 39th pick if he is still there. Can't say I'm that mad since he's not as big of a risk in the 2nd. I'd prefer getting someone more proven at tackle and with our next two picks get a nose tackle and a corner. Than in the later rounds we can pick up some guards, center and maybe a QB. 

What our front 7 may look like in the 3-4

DE - Trevor Scott, Dez Bryant

DT - Tommy Kelly , Rookie(?)

DE - Richard Seymour , Matt Shaughnessy , Jay Richardson

OLB - Kameron Wimbley , Sam Williams

ILB - Rolando Mcclain, Ricky Brown

ILB - Kirk Morrison , Thomas Howard

OLB - Thomas Howard, Quentin Groves

And us in a 4-3

DE - Trevor Scott, Jay Richardson

DT - Richard Seymour (Natural end but may need to play inside) , Dez Bryant

DT - Tommy Kelly , Rookie

DE - Kameron Wimbley (OLB if Kirk or Howard is moved) , Matt Shaughnessy

OLB - Kirk Morrison , Ekijuba

MLB - Roland Mcclain , Ricky Brown

OLB - Thomas Howard , Sam Williams
