It really depends on how Crennel is going to utilize the D-Line. If it's true that we will be very multiple and play a ton of nickel sub-packages then these guys will have every opportunity to make plays.
With that said, a guy like Watt doesn't need to ever be occupying blockers. If Crennel has him doing that then there is a serious problem in his plan. With athletes like Watt, Nix, and Pagan up front we need to be doing more than just staying on our feet and keeping guys clean.
