Deceptive game speed. High football IQ. Reads the QB as good as Watt.

I want him held back in case we really REALLY need him down the stretch.
like your breakdown, seems reasonable to me. Or you could take it a step further & just say he is half a second quicker to the QB than Mario, which can make all the difference in the world. But look @ me I didn't even bother to mock him to the Texans because I thought for sure he would be long gone. Texan fans be patient he has everything you look for in a pass rusher, 1st rd. pick & Texan (awesome parents too!).
