To me, a double team is when they draw up the play and say "You two guys block this one guy and stay on him."
He looks very athletic. He's got some nice moves. But he doesn't look like a #1 overall monster to me.
I just watched that video also, I'm not going to get into the whole double team discussion ( both sides of that have good points ). But man he was in the backfield a lot in that game, looked pretty disruptive, stats or no stats. throws his arms and shoulders around players but doesn't look like he uses his hands much to me. nice bull rush to go with his speed. As long as the bone spurs are not going to be a long term problem or cause other problems, I think he is worth top overall. he can definitely get better with technique.
