This can work. I've even written some programs that utilize this concept.

This is a basic program that uses that scenario.

Power clean/Press+2 front squats...5x3
Overhead squat...........................3x6
DB Rows/Deadlift.........................3x8 see note
OHP..........................................2x10
Bench........................................2x10
BB curl.......................................2x10

On Fridays drop DB rows and perform deadlifts for 3x5 scheme.
