I think youíre right to a degree, TTP. I noticed it a bit when making my mid-season grades. He just isnít as much of a factor in the run game as he was last year. It may be because the DTs arenít giving him enough protection from the O-line to shoot the gaps. A lot of his tackles are coming 5 yards downfield instead of at the LOS. One thing that was somewhat apparent last year was that he could get swallowed up by o-linemen. DeMeco is still doing enough in other areas Ė I think his coverage has improved Ė and I'm unsure to what extent the schemes and DT's are responsible, for me to hold off on saying heís regressed.
