How Michael Brockers’ position flexibility helps the Rams’ defensive line

“[W]e’ve talked a little bit about the flexibility that Michael Brockers does give you to play nose and five,” Snead said. “Then it gets into, do we add anybody else during free agency or the draft? And what his flexibility allows you to do is to pick the best player and not necessarily, ‘We’ve got to have a nose tackle,’ because, hey, maybe the best five technique will move down. So it does give you some flexibility and that’s what we are going to do there.” ... nsive-line

Interesting....maybe looking at moving Brockers back to Nose.....I think he is better suited to the Nose or go back to a 4-3 DT.

Sounds like they are already considering Suh gone.

Never understood why they switched Brockers and Suh,,,,maybe Suh just couldn't do it...IDK but it is interesting

Brockers was drafted to play over the Center. His best position. He's a good run defender, just doesn't get the wow sacks. He got one last season and is probably a 3 or 4 sack guy a season. He's a good piece to the defense on running downs.

Last season, the RAMs were rotating between the three position in the middle... with each player playing more at their assign spot...

I would expect them to do the same but with Brockers playing more NT Rotating DE when SJD comes in on rotation at NT....
