When a team wins a Super Bowl, it’s tough to find needs on its roster. But the Seattle Seahawks could definitely use another 3-technique defensive tackle for their starting defensive line. They need to bring in a guy who has the same "world is against me" attitude that the team played with in 2013.
That guy would definitely be Dominique Easley. Easley has suffered multiple ACL tears. Nonetheless, he would be an ideal fit for the 3-technique role in the Seahawks' 4-3 over scheme. He could also play the 5-technique defensive end in a rotational manner if need be.
Matt Miller's comparison: Greg Hardy
My comparison: Greg Hardy
Easley and Greg Hardy are definitely very similar in how they play. They both explode off the ball and can play any technique from 3-technique through 9-technique. They provide the versatility for their coordinators to run 3-4 looks if they want to, even though both would play in 4-3 defenses as pros in this situation.
