That comment about a 3 down player is crap. BJ Raji, Casey Hampton, Ngata and more are not all 3 down players. The kid is an incredible force and the only thing that keeps him out of the 1st round is that he isnt polished.

A 2 gap NT that occupies 2 blockers will allow the LB's to make plays. If the Steelers do draft him, dont expect to see him play much though. He might get the same kind of snaps that Heyward got this year, unless there is an injury.
