For example, outside linebackers in 3-4 schemes generally produce higher sack totals/lower tackle totals than outside linebackers that play in 4-3 schemes. Cornerbacks that play on defenses that incorporate a lot of Cover 2/Tampa 2 looks typically generate above average tackle numbers relative to their position.

Here are the current situations around the NFL:
4-3: BUF, CAR, CHI, CIN, DAL, DEN, DET, JAX, MIA, MIN, NYG, OAK, SEA, STL, TB
*3-4: ATL, ARZ, GB, IND, HOU, KC, NO, PHI, PIT, SD, SF, TEN, WAS
Multiple Front: BAL, CLE, NE, NYJ
*Most 3-4 teams are mainly using a 1-gap system, although there are still a few teams using a 2-gap system.
Anything in RED is a change from the 2013 season.
