No doubt, even in a specialist role, you'd think you would have seen something ala Aldon Smith.

However, being on the plus side as a run stopper is not where anyone expected him to be. Maybe we're just expecting the wrong thing. Playing opposite Jj Watt, next to Antonio Smith, being strong against the run may have been the thing they were waiting on to get him on the field.

Think about it, we had Barwin over there. He's more SAM than WOLB. We had Mario over there.... you don't run on Mario.

Not saying we don't need him to be strong/dominant as a pass rusher, but maybe this is a first thing's first kind of thing.
