    33 sacks wow!! Would be nice to see him put on about 30-40 lbs ASAP

    I'd also like to see him get a little bigger while losing as little athleticism as possible (preferably keeping it all)

    My guess is he's all speed and quickness at that weight, no bull rush? How is he against the run?

    You can still bull rush at any weight. I played D end in high school and was around that size. Bull rush isjust as much about leverage and explosiveness as it is brute strength

    He needs to add like 40lbs. 210 is lean for a hooper.
    Can't knock that kind of production.

    Does he have the frame to add weight? Could he be similar to Hargrove who blew up when he got here?
