His best pass-rush "move" is to avoid contact and use fake direction like a crossover dribble...like I said, he reminds me of a basketball player.
I think once he develops an NFL body, and puts on 10-15 pounds, there is a chance he could develop a nice bull-rush. Couple that with his speed and ability to "dip" around the edge (if he still has it after the ACL), and there is a chance he could become a good player.
At this point, I think he looks unpolished. I wonder why he gets shut-out most of the time? And I definitely wouldn't want him in on run downs for at least a couple years. All to be expected out of a 5th round draft pick, I just hope he contributes something this year.
Glad we have Shaun Phillips.
