    these other guys are a Gholston like projection. too risky for the Jets to attempt, JMO
    Ingram would be lethal on the Jets D

    But how is that Rex growing up as you said... seems like stagnation.

    Not only that, but if the player is athletic enough to gain a pass rush, typically they are going to be athletic enough to cover somewhat decently in space.

    People confused themselves on Gholston... Gholston wasn't bad because of any position change, he was bad because he couldn't do any one thing well.


    Just get the best pass rusher possible...
    Exactly.

    I heard Mayock make a good point about this topic the other day during Senior Bowl practice. He said years ago these kids were referred to as "tweeners", now they are considered valued and versatile.

    Good read. Interesting that Curry isn't mentioned. Johnson & McClellin stood out when I watched the coverage. I mentioned that McClellin reminded me of Vrabel in the other thread about him.

    I gave you kudos in the McClellin thread for your Vrabel comparison

    Kirwan on Sirius just said he saw Curry on the ground more than he would like..he's not killing him..a balance issue..noticed he was active
