i like hearing Sapp is making plays. adds speed to the LB core.
Yes. Aaron Maybin, Demario Davis and Ricky Sapp have the ability/potential to provide our defense with something in which we've lacked for many of years now, which is overall linebacker speed.
We all thought Aaron Maybin was fast? Wait until we see Ricky Sapp take the field, he's even faster. Sapp ran a faster 40 along with a quicker 3 cone drill when compared to Maybin coming out of college.
Now, after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery back in (I believe) 2010, I'm not sure if he's maintained his overall speed and quickness, but if so? Watch out, because Maybin, Davis and Sapp have the potential/ability to provide our front 7 with lots of speed.
Everyone forgets that the most important thing for a 3rd down back is to pick up the blitz. I'm sorry, but McKnight just doesn't seem to be able to do it. I hope he improves, because he has the most upside. If he can't and Powell can, he will.
