Alignment is one thing, but how run D is played from it is another. Wade Phillips plays one-gap/spill from an odd front which is more common from a split front. Two-gap/funnel run D is more common from an odd front.

Going to either odd or split two gap would require different personnel. 4-3 would also require a true Mike Backer.
I expect Denver's defensive front will look and play like they have the past two seasons; same coaches.
