You are correct sir, but they are completely different positions. Even a great NT doesn't put up gaudy production in Poe's defense he has to dominate one on one & require double teams with ability to explode through holes & create pressure on QB's. In our discussions it was my opinion he would be better served finishing school. I guess getting paid & working on third teams is their best practice to prepare him for future success? Some teams place higher value on measureables over production.
