If you are one of those fans that is concerned about the pick of Dominique Easley, here are a few highlight videos to put your mind at ease.
As you can see, Easley is one hell of a player. Whether it is pushing the pocket from the inside, or clogging up running lanes, this dude can do it all. His knee injuries are definitely a problem, but I am confident that the Patriots are satisfied with where he is at in terms of recovery, mainly because they wouldn’t have picked him if they felt otherwise.
I think he is a great inside pass rusher, which is something that will significantly improve New England’s defense. Vince Wilfork, Chandler Jones, Rob Ninkovich, and Easley all on the same defensive line coming after the quarterback will be very tough for opposing offenses to block.
Here are Easley’s career stats:
In 30 career games, he racked up 72 tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, forced one fumble, and even came up with a pass defended.
