personally i think you are misrepresenting the scheme.

AD is not a BIG strong-side DE. he will be a pass rusher and easly will back him up

moreover, the opposite end will not a speed rusher. hes more of a edge setter. in denver this guys is currently jared crick who did the same job prior in houston. i think westbrooks is likely to play htis role for the rams, alough there are several guys still available who they could pick up including Jared Odrick and Tyson Jackson who could compete t0 fill that role. brockers could also play it if they get another nose.

but i guess this all remains to be seem.....

I don't think the problem is with Donald. He can easily fill the traditional role of a big, strong-side (TE plus RT) defensive end. But the Rams lack the right kind of athlete for the other side in a traditional 3-4. That would typically be a speed-rushing, highly agile end who's bigger and taller than the outside backer behind him -- to go against the LT.

One could say that's Quinn. But it looks like he's moving to linebacker. Ironically, weight-wise, he's more suited to that anyway.

Instead, it appears the Rams will try to make do with a Donald clone opposite him: Easely. It may end up working just fine, though. But I wish they had that tall, agile, speed-rushing end of the traditional variety. At least to shake up the rotation. At least for that.
