In fricking high school. How many sec dts did he run against? how many guys will be playing in the nfl in he next 2 seasons did he bust them on?
This is a bad argument. How many future NFL linemen did he run behind in high school? The lines become a wash if you're trying to evaluate how well a player runs between the tackles cause sure, he may not have faced any SEC caliber DTs or DEs but he also never ran behind any SEC caliber OLineman. You have to worry about linebackers and how well he takes them on, how well he can take a hit, etc. Which, with his speed, if he makes just one LB miss, he's at the second level before you even blink. That equals big gainers. I think he actually could break a few up the middle. Whether he does or not, i guess we'll see.
