NFL coaches don’t generally pay lip service to the conventional wisdom of the fans, but in at least one respect, New Orleans Saints defensive line coach Bill Johnson and the public see eye to eye: It’s best to land plum defensive linemen when they’re young.

“It’s like dogs. Do you want the puppy you can teach, or the 5-year old already set in his ways?” Johnson asked. “You want the pup.”
