I'm not sure what the **** your point is. They are good at their jobs. They are not really asked to be pass rushers.
My point is that if you want a one dimensional run stopper, you trade a 5th for him (Bunkley), grab him as a UDFA (Mike Devito), or something like that. You don't draft him with the #3 or #5 pick.
Look at the top 7 run defending 3-4 DEs from last year. 4 of them are also awesome at rushing the passer. Of the 3 that aren't, one was a UDFA and the other 2 are top five picks. Guess who those 2 are.
I guess my point is that 400HZ's assesment of Dorsey and Jackson as busts isn't far from reality.
