This guy fits the Texans D very well.
He can play the 3t and 5t that Watt and Smith do.
He can slide into NT on passing down like Smith does or he can play at 43DE (like Smith did under Bush.)
He's constantly in the backfield, but didn't get much stats out of those occasions (in term of QB pressure) due to one reason or another.
He's solid in the run game, too!
This guy is going to play for a long time, IMHO.
I went back and watched more on him, and I'm more on the fence than against now.
He's got a quick first step and can get skinny between a double.
Doesn't have an arsenal of moves, so upside there.
But he seems to lose body control on penetration often running himself out of the play or taking poor angles. Is he a finisher???
I've seen him get blown off the line in a run a few times.
So the question is for me is more about who he is as a worker. Can he be coached up? I dunno. I'd love to be in the interview.
