They are also better pass rushers and football players in general. McCullers could play DE, but I wouldn't expect much production out of him. He's a big body that was immovable for most college linemen, but so was Terrance Cody. He won't go very far unless he develops some tangible football skills other than just being big. He has no burst off the snap and his playing level is inconsistent.
Unless he suddenly becomes a great athlete or improves his technique dramatically, he will just be a big guy playing football instead of a football player that happens to be big. This is what I think of every time someone mentions McCullers as a NT. He's #98....
You mean like Myers getting knocked on his butt by Jenkins?
