Looking forward to seeing him play.
me too. I am super hopeful that he will turn into another (HEALTHY) hand-tyoe player…
Me three. Can’t expect too much from a rookie in his 1st NFL game, whenever he plays in it. I don’t think we’ll really know how good he can be until next year, maybe. Good to see him activated though.
I’m definitely ready myself, but with Flowers out, this DL is capital H Hurting.
I’m really excited that we have that dude. hoping he surprises!
Looking forward to see what this kid can do.
Don’t even really care, to be honest.
I doubt if he’s in game shape anyways, probably just be a body.
Guarantee he’s not in game shape. I saw someone else post that the operation he has is a year-long recovery, for most. While I would love it, if they could figure out what we have in him, this year…I have my doubts.
Would be nice if he worked out to be a nice piece, and we didn’t have to acquire a DE in the offseason. (would likely require both he and Hand coming around to a place where we could trust their health).
Tons of question marks.
Well at least he can’t get any less pressure on the quarterback then we’re currently getting.
Maybe he doesn’t suck. Would be quite the boon to have a capable edge that we weren’t expecting going into an offseason with a ton of holes to fill
I’m not sure what size we are going to get at game day. I believe he’s been practicing for about 3 weeks.
Uses length as a weapon Long-strider with ability to eat up turf in upfield rush Stabs and separates to prevent being punched Alters approach speed as rusher to create uncertainty Corners the edge with decent ankle flexion Flattens with plus burst to quarterback Extended motor and plays until he hears a whistle Traits and athleticism are built for twisting scheme Knifes into alleys to disrupt zone-blocking schemes Fights back against early adversity in the rep Good use of hands to pry away from blocks and make tackles Length and pursuit speed to track and tackle on perimeter
Leggy, high-cut frame lacks body control Balance and coordination are below average Slow snap response and play diagnosis Allows linemen to cross his face and reach him Inconsistent bend with poor contact balance Washes out of run fits and widens out of gaps Play strength must improve to become a starter Excessive forward lean leads to imbalance as rusher Plays too tall to convert speed to power consistently Basic rush play with ineffective counters Face-up rusher who needs a wider approach angle
Love the wording where the strengths contradicts that of the weaknesses.
He’s got an extended motor, length and pursuit but slow snap response, balance and coordination are below average.
