I was going to mention that.  Sometimes the coaches have players practice certain (new) techniques, in order to improve their overall ability.  

I remember when Reggie White was being taught the spin move (he was already adept at bull rush & swim move).  This third technique took him a while... and he looked a little confused.  But when it clicked, he became unstoppable.  

Oh... Malcolm Johnson always looked way better than Hines Ward in drills.  Drills are drills.  Game play is what really matters.  And, I'm willing to bet that when actual plays are run, DD looks good.
