Actually, this isn't true. DL frequently take a year or two to lean their position. The reason is that most of these guys don't have enough moves or very good technique coming out of college. On that level, they were able to get by with their physical superiority. In the pros, the physical playing field is more level, and players have to become craftier. Now, one of Elvis' strengths is technique, so hopefully he'll get on the field soon. Remember, Trevor Pryce was inactive for a large portion of his rookie season, and he was a 1st rounder.
