I'm still dubious, but Mike Lombardi is selling that Pickett is a great fit for Capers' brand of 3-4 defense. Who am I not to buy?
The 3-4 that Capers runs is not a two-gap 3-4 and uses quickness and movement of the defensive line to make plays. Ryan Pickett would be the perfect nose tackle in this scheme and they have plenty of 3-4 ends to make this work. The nose is never in a two-gap mode, he can swing from A gap to A gap in the same fashion he did when Pickett played in the 4-3. Quickness is the key for this to work and the Packers, once they get healthy, will be able to fit the pieces into the scheme.
Not sure I've ever seen Pickett's name used in conjunction with the word 'quickness' but the idea of Pickett not playing two gaps is encouraging.
