THE ICEMAN Posted May 3, 2015 Share Posted May 3, 2015 I think that Ra'shede Hageman is the most imporant defensive player because in quinn's scheme he can be a monster. he basically will have Bennetts role and as good as bennett is and has been he never has been that kind of talent more so very good player in a scheme that suited him perfect.If Hageman is good it will make it near impossible to block Beasley and he'll see one on ones almost all the time not to mention Hageman can move along the DL like bennett did and can play the 1,3 or 5 tec his best is the 3 or one gapper as all he has to do is get up field. he's also so athletic you can run stunts with him and beasley and also blitz on that side as well.Seems like Hageman really can hold the key to success for this defense in my opinion. I think they'll be good to decent if shede is the same player from last year but he could make them a legit top 10 defense and over night one of the better pass rushing DLs with him and beasley and i think Clayborn if healthy is a decent rusher maybe not 10 sacks but 7-8 in a good year.If he dropped say 15-20 pounds and became a stronger and more explosive athlete and improved on his technique thats pretty scary considering he was starting to pick it up and even then he wasn't winning on technique it was more so him just man handling guys and tossing them to the side.By the end of the season he could be the falcons best defensive player and one of the better Dlmen in the league because of the scheme he's in it really can allow him to be a force vs last year they wanted him to be a run stuffer and just get up field were i think quinns thing is to just go get the QB and whoever gets there first gets the sack not all this you need to do this to open this up for the other guy.wouldn't shock me to see Jarrett also have a big impact playing the 1 tec or NT on rushing downs that would be there most athletic line up in Beasley,Hageman,Jarrett,Clayborn/Schofield also could have Beirman and Reed out there as well and both are capable rushers not every down guys but good if they only have to go hard for 4-5 snaps Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
