You know, if this team actually valued how tough players are, this team might actually be good one day. The fact that TD and Smitty have brought in the softest players in the NFL for the past 8 years, didn't really give us good results huh?

I don't agree with ya here. Matt Ryan is 1 of the toughest guys Qbs in the league.

So basically... We'd get 3 years younger and double the production over Jax...

It wouldn't necessarily increase production in numbers. Jax did dirty work in our defense so his numbers won't show up on a stat sheet. Upshaw had better looking numbers because he played OLB. If Upshaw plays T jax position at DE he'll have similar numbers. They don't have a glorified job. It's doing dirty work. Before TJax and Soliai got hurt we had the #1 rush defense and they were a big reason for that. T Jax is a lane clogger. Plus he's heavier run upshaw. I'd like to keep T Jax another year for the run and use Upshaw as an edge setter on run downs. If mbu can replace soliai admirably then our run D will be top 5 without a doubt to me. Ppl get caught up in numbers and some guys role is to just do the dirty work while somebody else gets the glory and numbers.

seems like a me a good pickup for us out of nowhere

 

 
 

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS

Upshaw sets the edge as good as any prospect in recent years. He uses his lower strength and girth to stall blockers and read plays off them to get to the ball in the run game. He understands how to use his hands to stack a block, hold the player up, then shed him and react to the play. He also uses his heavy hands well when covering a tight end at the line of scrimmage. Physical strength, explosion, and the ability to overpower offensive lineman to get to the ball carrier is what gives Upshaw so much value. Upshaw uses brute strength to rush the passer, can leverage tackles at the point of attack and literally force them into the backfield to create disruption. He also possesses the flexibility and knee bend to dip around tackles when given a step. 

WEAKNESSES

Upshaw is a strong man who has serious lower body power, and at times this can limit his fluid movements. He labors when moving laterally and has slower feet than most productive pass rushers. He is a bull-rusher first, finesse player second. He can struggle at times pursuing a play across the field for long stretches. He is much more effective in tight quarters than in space, and there are questions as to whether or not his athletic ability will be exposed at the next level.

Love all the confusing on how we couldnt use this guy - maybe its not obvious at this point, but good run defenders setup good 3rd and longs which gives the defense the advantage to use our corners and hopefully improved pass rush, thats about all its about really

Absolutely. To have a good pass defense we first must stop the run to keep opposing offenses in 3rd and longs.
