He was playing in a backpedal in Indy. He is a downhill player and not as big of a liability in coverage as Wimbley was.
People overrate Routt. He has zero feel for the game and is only good turning and running with a guy. We figure to run a multiple look defense and not the dopey single high safety, no blitz, every snap with man outside.
I think he will struggle in KC much the way Asomougha did in Philly when asked to do anything but get his hands on the receiver and knock him off his route.
18.5 sacks in 3 years? That is what Von Miller calls not impressive (Miller had 17 in his junior year and 10.5 in his senior year).
