1. Most likely yes; depends on the next DC, if the next DC is a 3-4 guy then probably yes, but you can still use one ina. 3-4 scheme as well.

2. No Manny didn’t originate it, Striker is a HYBRID position, which means, you can put a Safety or LB or (in some cases) a CB at that spot.

A Striker is a just an extra defender that you can leave on the field when you’re in Nickel coverage, as opposed to having to sub in a S in spot of LB or sub in a LB in spot of S, you can have a guy on the field who can do both things.

In the 4-2-5 Defense the Striker replaces the Sam Backer in the 4-3, so instead of having 3 traditional style LB’s (Will, Mike & Sam), you have a Mike, a Will & a HYBRID, although you can replace the Weak side backer with a Hyrbid too if you want.

3. Yes, Lots of other teams use it; UF has the same position as well even though they run a 3-4 base Defense, they have the Star position which is just a Nickel Safety that plays down in the box vs Run, but can also drop back in coverage & cover TE's, WR's RB's out of the backfield etc, in Zone & Man looks.

Bama & UGA both have the Star position as well, in their personnel groupings they tend to take a converted CB/S & make them the STAR, that was the position that Tyrique Stevenson was playing before he transferred to Miami.

Oh St has a similar position as well being that they play 3 CB's & 1 Safety instead of the traditional 2 Safeties in their 4-3 scheme.

San Diego St has had one of the best Defenses in the nation over the last few years, they run the 3-3-5 & have the "War" position.

Oklahoma & TCU ran the 4-2-5 like we did, Oklahoma used more 3 down lineman sets than us but it was basically the same defense. Under Venables I think they’ll run a more traditional 4-3 front, but they’ll still have a Hybrid Nickel style Safety in the secondary, although Venables usually tended to rely on his LB’s to cover quite a bit.

Lots of teams use it & have a player on their defense that has versatility in their assignments which allows them to stay on the field vs no huddle offenses & can cover multiple spots.

4. Only time will tell; but in theory we could still use a Hybrid in whichever new Defense we run this season.

Can’t believe this issue comes up as much as it does. It’s the same damn question and conversation every fucking other week
It’s because a lot of our fans didn’t play Football & don’t really understand the game...

So even if you explain it to them over & over again, they still don’t get it lol.

Correct. Its just a hybrid position. And has been around for ever except that it used to be a SAM on 1st-2nd down and a defensive back on 3rd down and any second and long. But statistically, when teams ran more 2 WR sets, the SAM was on the field for more plays than the sub, Now that teams run more 3 WR sets than 2 WR, then defesive back is on the field for more plays than the SAM.
Its really just about matching up with an offense.
