    One thing I was impressed with was him dropping back into coverage and defending a pass like one of our LB's. He has a long way to go as far as learning but I think he has a chance to make it.

    While being touted as a pass rusher I think there's potential against the run too. Of course, he could easily be overpowered there due to his size, but they need to get to him first. He's disrupted a few running plays already by getting in to the backfield before the QB can hand off. At times he seems to be all over the field and in on every play. He seems comfortable and alert back in pass coverage too.

    Nothing spectacular so far, but he's doing well. Of course, I'm hoping to really see something special from him this year because that could only mean good things for the team.
    Fred - Note that MnG is one of our DLine experts...

    This is a great evaluation, IMO

    Good observation. Also nice to see you guys have checked him on with the Cards.

    ...and I've heard he has the wingspan of someone that's 6'5". If that's true then he has a couple things working for him there: lower center of gravity/leverage advantage, and long arms to get better separation.

    Thanks for all the input.

    I'm pretty pleased that he ended-up there.
    I think you guys will take good care of him.

    We love him here.

    What do you guys think about his size? Too small?

    And I would like to see him become a lot more agressive as I've seen him before.
    I think he's going to do really well. I'm biased, though.

    I'm not totally impressed but not disappointed thus far. I think he's doing fine and could help our D-Line now and later as WAB mentioned.

    I'm kind of disappointed in him. He just doesn't look explosive like he did in college, and those Freeney comparisons are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY off. He needs to step it up a few notches.

    Pshhhhh...he's playing pretty good for a 4th round pick, that's for danged sure. Freeney comparisons? By whom? Freeney is once in a decade...

    He's beating OL off the snap just fine...he's just not turning the corner or getting there quick enough. He's a fine prospect for now and later.

    I think he looks pretty good, but hes not a dominating player.

    I'm also not sure if he ever will be a dominating player.

    but so far im pretty happy with him!

    now Corey Jackson on the other hand.....

    Newbie question about Elvis Dumervil

    So what do you guys think of Evis now?

    Are you impressed? Depressed?

    Has your opinion of him changed since you have watched him play?

    FYI I am now becoming a Broncos fan (still love my Colts) since he's from my college team.

    Just wanna see what the veterans here think about him.
Working...
