He was a rookie who I believe was coming off an injury. So of course he wasn’t going to be good right out the gates.If you read the article I posted, Cashman was not looking like even a decent backup when he first got to the NFL. PFF graded him in the 40's and at one point in a season he was like 20. When he got to Houston he improved his first year with about a 50 or 60 PFF score, keep in mind, 90 is pro bowl level. I think at this point so far he is grading out at a 74. Which is not JJ Watt level, but it sure is not just some random guy. It's a good and dependable player and judging by how he has looked I think by years end he very well could be a Pro Bowl grade player.
Here is a link for PFF. You can change the year with the drop down menu about 1/4th to 1/2 down the page to the left.
