I personally like the guy. Met him in camp and he was super nice and engaging. And I thought he looked quick off the snap against our tackles who we quickly found out were awful to start the season.
Once we get into the season, I didn't expect much from him in his first year. But I did think we should see him blow by someone off the snap or overpower someone or have a pass rush move or 2 to beat someone. And I literally saw none of that. Sure people jumped the gun on Troy and Timmons but you could see special talent in those guys where they may have gotten mixed up in their responsibilities, but they flat out beat guys too from time to time. I can't think of a play where JJ really beat someone.
The part that makes me nervous about him is ROLB is the premiere player in our D. And we've got a kid that's smallish, slow, and lacks strength at this point manning our most important spot.
The only positive thing I can really say about JJ is he doesn't give up on a play. I just don't know if he's a good fit at ROLB. I'd like to see him be successful, but I just don't see how it's gonna happen at this point?
