DeCastro, Colon and Pouncey are nasty finishers, but the 2 young guys IMO do a great job at getting position on defenders and driving them. Colon just mauls more than sealing gaps.
I watched DD for two years, and he was like a 300 lb FB: pulling, through holes, into the second level.
I'm not saying that they aren't tough... Pouncey & DD are as tough as I've seen, but aren't the two of them more athletic than smash-mouth? [I'm really asking, because, if finesse isn't being athletic, then I don't think that I understand what finesse is...]
