And a hair better than Jamal Williams with the Chargers.
FWIW, Ratliff came to the Cowboys during a 3-4 D transition (2005) after 45years of a 4-3. On top of that, he had just prior transitioned in his senior year from a 4-3 DE to a 4-3 DT. I would suspect that there was some significant "acclimation" going on during those first couple of years with the Cowboys.
