Limas Sweed isnt as fast or physical as Roy. Gaither = Ogden is stretching it too.

Calais Campbell - Jason Taylor
Campbell is listed at 6'8" 280-lbs. He is almost the opposite of Jason Taylor, let alone comparable.

Gaither has the physical tools and potential to be the next Ogden. I don't think he's close right now in terms of his play.

I forgot that he is now at 280, I thought he was around 265. Though I think Calais is more talented a better comparison might be Calais=Chris Canty.

Gaither physical tools are quite the hype around here and I don't see it. He isn't nearly as strong in either the upper or lower body and lacks Ogden's lateral speed.

Gaither is much closer to Alex Barron.

I'm not a huge Gaither fan but he is FREAK. He's 6'9" 330lbs, ran a 4.75 in HS, and has a 36 inch vert at Maryland. The guys has freak size andwith great athletism to go along with it. He could be the next Tony Mandriach but has potential to be the next Ogden.

Campbell is listed at 280, but I'm pretty sure he was playing upper 260s - low 70s this season. It doesn't really matter what his weight is, cause he carries it extremely well and it doesn't look like he weighs that much. He's kind of lanky and a good rangy athlete like Taylor.

Severe Punishment hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.
Default

Calais Campbell - Jason Taylor
Glen Dorsey - Warren Sapp
Limas Sweed - Roy Williams = Not even close. Roy was 50X's better as a Junior. Sweed would have to rewrite every record in Texas and
run a sub 4.4 to even be in Roy's rearview.
Sedrick Ellis - Rod Coleman
Keith Rivers - Lance Briggs
Chris Long - Patrick Kerney
Jake Long - Jon Runyan
Jared Gaither - Jonathan Ogden = HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!!
Jonathan Stewart - Larry Johnson
Steve Slaton - Brian Westbrook = More like Ahman Green than Westbrook.

Jonathan Stewart is infinitely faster and shiftier than Larry Johnson. He doesn't run with the same power either.

Last year he was at 260 but he's bulked up to 282 and isn't quite as lanky as he was last year. There isn't really some one who he is a very good comparison too just because of his size, but playing style he reminds me of Osi Umenyiora. A 6-8 Osi, that is just scary.

Ah, yes, I was thinking of Osi myself. Similar, but not perfect match.

Brian Brohm.. I am not sure. But I'll say Donovan McNabb and then wait to be killed. I'm not exactly good at comparisons.
