Why woud Kendricks struggle in a 3-4/4-3 under?


He's small. I imagine he's going to see a lot of second level blockers.


He's 240. Same as P willy and bowman... And if we're going to run the same D as Cards kendricks will be the WILB and often the player who's not blocked


They're completely different 240s.

Guys I seriously don't get the weight issue. In the end it comes down to technique and fundamentals when tackling (yes my inner Juandamentals just came out). I think Kendricks has that. Besides and I saw the picture above of P-Willy but Kendricks is actually heavier in wieght then

Kendricks 238
Briggs 238
Sean Lee 234
Larry Foote 234
Lawrence Timmons 234
Bobby Wagner 233


Give me a player who is smart and usually in the right spot to attempt a tackle with good form over steroid driven wilderbeasts who look the part but have poor form. No that is not intended for P-52!

I remember reading that article from back when Billy Davis was with the Cardinals, and he was explaining how players' skill sets fit in the 4-3 under:
Quote:
Karlos Dansby is the weak-side linebacker. The way the defense is set up, he has a nice protective shield to keep potential blockers at bay. "what we've done with Karlos is put him behind a three-technique, so basically - we call these anchor points - he's got a wall in front of him," Davis said. "So he can run and use his athleticism. The center can't get him because the nose is on him. The guard can't get him because the end is on him. And the tackle can't get him because the predator is on him. So this is your athlete that can run, go cover ground and make plays.

I don't think a lack of weight is going to be a problem for Kendricks in this defense (and, as you've shown, he isn't "too light" anyway). I think he is crazy athletic and will be the protected LB that's flying around the field. Meco will be the guy that has to mix it up, which is fine, and we'll have Barwin and our predator on the outside.

Thank you for the find (article) and with the addition of Soap and possible another added in the draft it's exactly how I see it playing out for Kendricks.

Comes down, IMO, to your ability to tackle if your going to be light. Kendricks didn't impress me as a sound tackler yet.

My pleasure! That was one of my favorite articles I've read the past few months, one of the rare times you get to see inside the head of an NFL coach. The way he explains everything (via the interview) makes so much sense, especially if you are familiar with the players he's referring to.

Kendricks should excel in the 4-3 under, he'll be uncovered for the most part so he can use his speed to flow freely.

Not as sure about the straight 3-4

Even if we stayed 4-3 he'd be better this year because eye would've been at the WILL from the getgo.

the 2 main problems with Kendricks is
#1 he lacks natural instincts
#2 he really struggles to get off blockers and maintain his balance in traffic. He's basically Ernie Sims, but he doesn't over-pursue nearly as bad. At this point, he's a good coverage lb and that's about it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure he played 3-4 ILB at Cal. He definitely has the experience. We'll just have to see if his playmaking and ability in the 3-4 transfers smoothly to the NFL.

Really hope Kendricks can remove the missed tackle syndrome, but since our whole defense suffered from it, I hope it something we see fixed this year, and with the players brought in.
