Yes, I don't think JDC can move the pocket or pressure the QB out of the NT position. Not strong enough.
I knew you were going to say that.


Watch more games. Often times you'll see a LB walk right up to the line and come on a blitz. When a LB walks up to the line like that, they aren't going to be unacounted for.

And clowney would not be trying to push the pocket. He'd be trying to get penetration.

Lots of teams have nascar packages where you have 4 edge rusher type guys on the field. Normally in sure passing situations and against a qb that isn't prone to scramble.

As far as strength goes, clowney is plenty strong enough to rush the passer from the interior and it's not all about strength anyways. Especially against OLinemen who are going to be giving ground in a pass situation.

It's not that you can't have the opinion that clowney can't rush from inside, but the reasons you're giving don't make a lot of sense IMO.
