Bet you can't name one DT that is a better penetrator.
Its his strongest attribute and why I want him so bad.
He has the ability to shoot gaps and cause all kinds of problems for offensive lines. Cody is serviceable but he doesn't cause breakdowns in OL like Worthy is capable of. He just doesn't have that ability.
You put a disruptive player in between Smith and Watt and OL's and QB's will be having nightmares.
