Impressive Fatukasi/McLendon stat from PFF

Recommended Posts

McLendon is one of my favorite players on the ream.  He and Fatukasi are perfect examples of what kind of resources you should invest in run-stuffing DT's.

Our recent history is replete with generally underperforming high draft picks on the DL coupled with example after example of lowly drafted, undrafted or cheap FA acquisitions who have come in and performed unbelievably well.  It certainly is an odd phenomenon especially since the finding of these rough diamonds has spanned multiple different front offices.

It is one of the few things we seem to be really good at.

The franchise also did a great job of establishing a pipeline at Center that spanned for decades, starting before the merger:

  • John Schmitt (1967-1973)
  • Wayne Mulligan (1974-75)
  • Joe Fields (1976-1986)
  • Guy Bingham (1986-87)
  • Jim Sweeney (1988-1994)
  • Kevin Mawae (1996-2005)
  • Nick Mangold (2006-2016)

But then Idzik and Maccagnan came along and f**ked it all up.

I have hope for sure, but call me biased due to how Leo played out. Feels like the same thing all over again. 

To be fair, Leo wasn't as athletic as Quinnen was coming out of school.  And athleticism is what matters most when separating the run-stuffing DT's from potential pass-rushing DT's.

Both were still bad picks, however.  Especially the QW pick, since there were rather obvious alternative moves to be made.  We should have either traded down, even if he had to accept 75 cents on the dollar for pick # 3, or just take Josh Allen in that spot.
