You don't need someone that can chase him down. Antrel Rolle can do that.
What we need is to learn to read the read-option better and have better contain as well as learning that sometimes just staying in front of RG3 is better than trying to tackle him one on one
JPP really failed to that end.
I'm not as worried about RGIII and the option. It's like any system in football; after the next offseason coaches will find a way to snuff it out. RGIII will always be great and hard to defend, but it'll come back down to earth a little.
RG3 really makes us have to upgrade our pass rush. Tuck just isn't getting it done. Even JPP is off this year. We need another DE to take Osi's spot or that becomes a glaring need because of the depth issue.
The guy we need is Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah. This dude is the next JPP. Kid is from Ghana, went to BYU to play b-ball. Got cut, asked the football coach to give him a shot. Coach "no way." Eventually gives him a shot, kid doesn't even know how to put his pads on. Fast forward 4 years.
He's a senior this year, learned OLB, DE, and DT. Injury to the starting BYU DT gave this kid a chance to start. Has only started 9 games, has 13.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. Kid is 6'6, 273, with a nonstop motor, arms as long as trees, oh, and did i mention he ran the 100m dash in 10.9? Divide that by 2, its 5.45. Divide that by 5, and then subtract the 1.09 for the extra 10m, and u have a 4.36. Consider that the hard part is getting to top end, I would say this kid still runs a sub 4.6 40m. Basically u have a Julius Peppers type athlete that is super raw and still learning. Sound like another lineman we fell in love with recently? Yup. Let's pair them together.
Get on youtube and check this kid. He plays too high, pad level wise, but a lot of 6'6 lineman do. Anyhow, this kid sheds blocks like a menace. At the point of attack, he rarely gives ground, and when he does, he's so athletic he usually still finds a way to get to the ball. His tackling needs work, but he's 100% all the time and hits pretty ferociously. The only reason we will even get a shot at this kid in the first round is because he's so raw yet. Otherwise, had he played all his life, this kid is top 10 easy.
Giants gotta go DE/DT and CB or maybe even S if theyre are any great prospects!! But doubt that. Kenny should be back!! Need depth on defense!!
I am wishing for a "dog" linebacker! But don't really need one with the Giants total Defense play" but I can wish!
I do think our O line isnt all that bad! They do keep Eli Manning pretty upright n clean for the most part so if they can get a T late. But Giants gotta go defense picks early!!!! Offense is set n too much depth at RB WR N TE...
