WLB: Hawk??? (Please no)
When you have a playmaker like Clay, you play to his strengths. If you have to try to figure out how to use him, then you're doing it wrong.
I would agree, as long as they have Clay they have to run a 34. I think all the pieces you listed above would work in either defense but then they would have to get another quality DE.
