Pity, there isn't much on him

Looked good for the Giants last year in the playoffs. 9 tackles and a sack on a half back option. My cousin is a huge Giant fan. Says he is not perfect, but you'll know he's on the field because he makes plays. Seems fast, but a little undersized for DE. Weak against the run and weak generally. He's intriguing, but seems very similar to Thomas. Can we keep two of these guys?

PS: As a 2nd round pick I find plenty of info on the guy.

2nd round pick of the Steelers in '03 who wanted him to be a 3-4 OLB. Stuck behind some good players. Weight bounced around at the request of the Steelers who asked him to bulk up to help against the run in '04, then come in quicker in '05. Acted like he might start for Porter, but then he was cut. Played half the year with the Giants. They compared him to Vrabel, a guy that bounced in weight and then found success after leaving the Steelers crowded LBs. Bad thing is he made as many tackles in the playoff game as he has in his whole career.

DE | (6-4, 266, 4.83) | FLORIDA STATE

By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: Played in every game in 1999 and 2000 and started four games in 2000. Started 10 games in '01 but sat out vs. Miami (Fla.) and Virginia with a sprained left knee. All-Atlantic Coast Conference defensive end in '02, when he started 12 games. Posted 13 tackles in '99; 37 tackles with six tackles for loss and five sacks in 2000; and 33-8-5 in '01. Recorded 37 stops in '02 and led the 'Noles with 16 tackles for loss and 11 sacks. Positives: Well-built player with a very large wingspan for his size. Speed edge rusher who uses his hands and arms well. Plays hard and hustles. Will chase all over the field. Really came on as a senior and showed very good pass-rush ability at times. Seemed stronger and did not get pushed past the quarterback as often, and at times would dip his shoulder and power through the block. Has a 37-inch vertical.Negatives: Lacks size and size potential vs. the run and really struggles when he has to play over a big tackle. Needs to develop better counter moves as a pass rusher. Plays with a high motor but is not as mean and nasty as teams would like. Because of his lack of strength, he may begin his career as a third-down specialist while a team puts him up in the weight room. Summary: Best bet will be as a 4-3 right defensive end who is split out wide or as a 3-4 rush outside linebacker. Good speed rusher with tweener's size, but his lack of adequate upper-body strength, which was extremely evident at the Combine, will cause his stock to drop.* Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
