I'm hesitant too because of the injury.
FWIW, there were 20 players in the league with at least 10 sacks last year. 14 of them # DE, 1 at DT (Atkins) and 5 @ OLB.
Then there are guys who had 7-9.5 sacks
which are just as many as those who had the top tier.
The league doesn't have a lot of premium cornerbacks. It does have a lot of pass rushers. And I see a lot of rookies, 1st year and 2nd year players on that list.
