Can The Seattle Seahawks Clone Marcus Tubbs?

If the Seattle Seahawks switch to a 3-4 defense they are going need a nose tackle to anchor the line.  Looking at the current roster I don't see anybody who could be a dominate nose tackle that would be able to cause havoc in the middle.  Wouldn't Marcus Tubbs be nice to have right now? 

Tubbs would of been the perfect nose tackle for this new defense, but his career was cut short by injury. Since Tubbs retired the Seahawks have tried, but failed to replace the big body run stopper in the middle.

When Tubbs stayed healthy in 2005 the Seahawks were 5th in the league against the run and the defense helped carry the Seahawks to the Superbowl.  After that great year though Tubbs could not stay healthy and the Seahawks run defense went from good to bad real quick.

If the Seahawks are going to switch to the 3-4 defense they have to draft or sign a guy next year.  If Seahawks have to use there first round pick like they did with Tubbs it would be worth the high cost because without a nose tackle that 3-4 defense will not work.
