According to "Inside The panthers' at the CO, and RotoWorld.com, the Panthers DC Sean McDermott says:
"May transition to more of a 3-4 defense".
Actually, ProfootballFocus.com reports that DE Charles johnson lined up at 3-4 OLB 3 times yesterday. I'm a little syrprised that Johnson would move to OLB rather than DE Greg Hardy, and shocked that Kearse is mentioned at NT, and not Fua.
This move will make for a very interesting draft day decision at LB, will the panthers go for a fast 4-3 OLB in the Thomas Davis mold, like UNC Zach Brown, or a bigger 3-4 type pass rushing OLB, like South Carolina's Devin Taylor, West Virginia's Bruce Irvin, or Marshall's Vinny Curry?
