Parry and Anderson Ready to Anchor the D-line


Recommended Posts

Nice article with some film break down. I think the pair will surprise many and the fact that they've worked together for years will help tremendously.

I can't wait to see how Anderson develops.  During the pre-draft moments when people were doing their mocks, I did some research on him and everything about him screamed JJ Watt-esque to me.  He seems like a hard worker and I think he'll put in the time and effort to develop well, so I'm really excited about his potential.

I think comparing him to JJ Watt may be a little over the top and pre-mature.  

 

Although if he is anything close to JJ Watt's talent we just got the draft steal of the decade.

Agreed.  I'm not trying to say he is JJ Watt or will develop into JJ Watt.  I'm just saying you can compare the two with quite a few similarities between them.  Anderson has a lot to do before he gets anywhere near Watt's level, but he could possibly develop into a poor man's Watt.

I don't think it was a comparison. Just a statement that they share similar traits.

 

Edit: 21isSuperman clarified before I posted this

The fact is...... Watt is probably a first ballot HOF, and is a once in a lifetime player

 

I would be happy if Anderson ended up being 90% of JJ Watt.........  Very happy

If Anderson was 90% of Watt he'd be a perennial all-pro and a HOFer lol

Colts absolutely stole this guy. One of my favorites to study pre-draft and reminds me of Kyle Williams: http://t.co/bdpDZUc32u

I wondered actually because of his frame/size if Parry would be a better fit as a DT instead of NT on our System. I know we view him as NT but i dont know when i saw him play and given Williams comparision i wonder if we could see him on that role

I think him playing NT has to do with a slight change in our defensive philosophy now talked about in this thread.

Sounds like we are basically going towards smaller guys who can make plays on the DL rather then just guys who can occupy blockers.

 

This is probably why Chapman was cut.  He's a big guy who is somewhat decent at occupying blockers. . . but he's not a guy who's going to make defensive plays for you.  Kerr and McGill are smaller 3-4 DL who can make more plays.
