Actually, I thought many systems used the DL to engage the OL and LBs to step up into the holes at the line. Now if you had said if the FS is making a tackle on RBs, they've already gained 5 yards, I'm right there with you. But LBs are typicall up "in the box" to stuff runs at the line of scrimmage.
