I wondered what defense should I use
I have used 4-3 and nickel
This matters not. You pick what you want to use and recruit for it. You will see a little bit of everything here and it can all be successful with the right coach and the right players/skills.
I've mentioned before that you also need to decide how you want to play....8 in the box all the time, and blitzing the FS also....or playing loose, with all LBS in coverage and the FS/SS set deep (clearly those are the extremes). The same players will not likely fit both of those extreme schemes.
Same sort of thing on offense.....pound it on the ground vs going deep to the WRs every play. Different set of player requirements....and you have to decide first, then recruit for that.
