DEs in a 3 down will almost always have less sacks, but a 3 down didn’t require that our DEs align in the 4i on obvious passing downs. That shit was all on Orlando and he did guys like Roach, Bimage, Omenihu, etc. a disservice by doing so. That kind of stuff was entirely on Orlando, same as failing to use a 4th rusher, which most DCs who use a 3 down actually do, and we saw what happens when you do those things in the Tech and Utah games (while still using 3 down linemen), where we had 9 total sacks, with 6 of those coming from the 3 down linemen.

In the other 11 games, we averaged 1.5 sacks per game, so yeah that shit is way more on Orlando than simply using a 3 down alignment. 

Agree. I was referring to Orlando’s particular brand of three man front. The Baylor three down alignment showed sacks were possible.

how much did he weigh last season?

I am curious about this also. Was he really playing near 300 like he weighed in at combine? I figured he was in the 275 range but idk 

 

Also wtf is all combine defense team?

i would have guessed he was playing in 280-290 range, closer to 290.  current roster shows 290.

i think he was pushing 275 the previous year when we were playing him as a DE/LB hybrid.

Malcolm Roach, Texas

Best team fits: Carolina Panthers, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals.

Roach moves incredibly well for his size at 6-foot-2 and nearly 300 pounds. He was quick through the bags and change-of-direction drills and powerful in the pass-rushing drills, and his swift 4.84 40 should raise some eyebrows. Roach's 20 bench press reps fall right in line with his size, and he could do well working as a 3-technique with the capability to power past blockers. His standing with the third-best athleticism score among edge defenders (per Next Gen Stats) only reinforces what we saw on the field in Indianapolis.

 

Of those 3 teams, Carolina is probably the best option for Malcolm...

it was hilarious watching us flex him outside and have him cover TE and RB at that size. Like, just cause he could kind of do it..... doesn't mean that he SHOULD....

Orlando is a fucking asshole and is going to cost Roach money.  He totally wasted his athleticism. 

Actually I blame Herman a lot more.  he hired Orlando, knew what D he was going to run, knew that he was married to it come hell or high water, and failed to recruit well enough for it.

when our DB's became a MASH unit there was no way to hide it.

He also could have demoted him after the Kansas and TCU debacles and promoted Naivar.  might have changed the ISU outcome.  likely not Baylor but who knows after the Utah game showing.

You know, he crushed some back his freshman year dropping into coverage and I was excited as hell to watch him.

i remember that play too. Was excited as hell for a monster roaming at the LB level. I think he was like 245 or 250 at that time.

He did it in less than 1/2 the time it took me and I only rowed crew two semesters. Never played a varsity sport.

Nice going!
