Roth is 6'3 3/4 and 278 in the latest stats. In the 4-3 he'll play a lot of LDE, opposite Taylor (He played on that side in college). He'll take David Bowens spot and alternate with Kevin Carter. He can also move to the other side and spell Taylor.

In the 3-4, he can play up or down still and go to OLB.

4-3:
DE - Taylor

DT - Chester / Carter (Or, alternate Chester/Bowens at one DT; Carter/Holliday at another)

DT - Bowens / Holliday

DE - Carter / Roth

3-4:

............................... OLB/DE - Taylor
DE/DT - Holliday
................................ILB - Thomas / Crowder
NT - Chester / Bowens
................................ ILB - Seau / Crowder
DE/DT - Carter / Roth
.................................OLB/DE - Roth / Spragen

At 278 with quickness, Roth can go down at DE in a 3-4.

Plus, out of the 4-3 lineup, we can stand either Roth or Taylor up and instantly be in a 3-4. This is just the kind of flexibility that New England has with their front 7 and it wreak's havoc on offensive lines. We will do the same with that talent.

This is great stuff for our defense. Saban will be much more attacking with the DL than he was in the past.

I cant wait to watch our defense this year. I was really sad that Surtain and Knight are gone but it looks like our defense is going to really put pressure on the QB this year. We always did with JT and Zgonina/Bowens but all of these other D-linemen we have added (Carter,Vonnie,Roth) we will be able to really switch up everyone and the new 3-4 D we will sometimes use will be fun to watch.

Uhh, the difference between Matt Roth and Dan Klecko is that Matt Roth will actually likely do more then waste a roster spot.

BTW... for those hating on the Roth pick. The Raiders fans were desperate to get him at #26... and even more so at #38.

we are having a great, solid draft.
