When it comes to the defensive line teams typically like to see the bigger guys inside stuffing the run and the smaller, quicker guys on the outside so they can use their speed to get around the end and rush the quarterback. Yeah, it is nice if you have a big guy that is actually pretty quick and can line up on the outside, but finding one of those is easier said than done.49ers...
