After Johnathan Hankins signed with the Colts in free agency this spring, the New York Giants had a pretty big hole to fill at defensive tackle.
Damon Harrison, a free agent pickup in 2016, and Hankins were quite the formidable tandem inside for the Giants last season. It was damn near impossible for teams to run the ball between the tackles with those two monsters clogging things up.
That’s how dudes end up needing shoulder surgery.
Westbrooks isn’t quite as big as your average 3-4 defensive lineman, so I do have some questions about how well he will hold up against the run, especially if they play him inside on early downs. But whether he is a starter or a back up, an edge guy or an interior guy, Westbrooks’ pass rush technique will lead to a big jump forward in terms of production this year.
He has four career sacks to his name, but his steady improvement over his first three seasons is undeniable when you watch the film. I believe somehow, some way Ethan Westbrooks will Cheap Jerseys USA Soccer be a starter this season and will best his career total in sacks at the same damn time. That’s why I chose him to be the Rams’ breakout player of 2017.
The rules for NFL roster cuts changed this year. The league decided to move to a single roster cut deadline, as opposed to a deadline to cut down from 90 to 75 players and another one to go from 75 to 53. Now teams can carry 90 players through the last preseason game, which gives Cheap Jerseys Youth coaching staffs more time to evaluate them.
