I didn’t mind “process” because everything IS a process. The process was derailed by Blank after the playoff drilling by the Packers. 
 

Brotherhood? I don’t want my head coach talking about a brotherhood. If it’s something amongst the players that’s fine. Coaches don’t need to be buddies with players. Pete Carroll is a beloved coach by coaching hard and expecting results. When he gets the success then the respect comes. 

Yea...I'll continue to call a buzzword a buzzword until proven otherwise.

Atlanta Falcons Message Board be like: “Jeff Holland, I pulled up his game tape from kindergarten through Auburn and man, this guy must be the most underrated backup in the NFL. He’s pretty much the next Mike Singletary but he just never got a fair shot. So pumped we signed this guy, he’s going to lead the NFL in tackles for the next 72 years, awesome signing, what a find!” 
 

GO FALCONS!

The Buck was a pass rushing specialist that often stood up as opposed to lining up in a three point stance (vs. our Marlon Davidson who was the traditional defensive end on the opposite side of the d-line and had his fingers in the dirt). 

He looked much bigger than his 6'2" 249 lbs frame.  Produced, especially his junior year, after which he declared for the draft.  I think NFL teams have tried to play him at 4-3 OLB, which is why he hasn't stuck around.  Even though he's not big by NFL means, he's more of a pass rusher.

 

Put em at his natural position and let him get to the QB

A good signing young guy hasn't produced at the pro level yet but has plenty of athleticism.  Long shot to make the team but gotta love camp bodies.  The best part of the offseason is picking your very own guy that definitely on paper shouldn't make it on the squad.  Then watching him all preseason just hoping he shows out.

He was my favourite out of our latest round of tryout players.

Realistically he's a practice squad candidate, but our depth at LB and Edge are both trash so you never know.

Like I always say, young trash is better than old trash.

Besides with it being cheaper trash, one day it might not be quite so trashy either.

The change of direction numbers are way better for Barrett. Big deal at that size. 
 

Other numbers are similar but the C O D ones I’d look at most. 
 

Hopefully they can get something out of him. 

The 10 yard split is the most important test to determine a defensive lineman - pass rusher get off.

For example Demarcus Lawrence at 6’2” 251, 10 yard split was 1.68 but his 3 cone was 7.46

Depends on how you win (and also how much you prepared for the test).

Straight line guys who are going to win with length and power, you look more at 10 yard.

Guys who are going to use a variety of moves, go inside/outside, the 3 cone and short shuttle are the tests to measure.  
Obviously tests don't always measure what they're trying to perfectly, the change of direction is pretty important in short areas to get the OL off balance and then get to the other side of him.

But yeah, just straight line running by or through a guy, agree...10 yard is the measure.
