49ers signed the former eagles DT...


He is going to be a DE in our 3-4. I was wondering what information, if any, you guys could tell me about him?

He's got good size, but his physical skill set is below average. He made himself into a productive player through hard work and technique. He's not going to wow you with anything, but he plays hard, works hard, and studies hard. He has the ability to play 3-4 DE in certain packages. He has shown some good pass rush ability as a 4-3 DT. Kind of a people's champion and appears to be a good teammate.

He looked really promising as a rookie but never really played at that level since, I'm intrigued by him as a 3-4 DE, though.
