Peppers Or Abraham?

I would take Abraham Lincoln if he helped us win.

You had me until I pulled this up read the weaknesses. I do think he played DE during the Zona game...oh wait that was Peppers.

From Mel Kiper Archives:

Abraham Lincolon- 6' 4' 170lbs Home School 5.37 40 yrd dash

Breakdown

Tall and rangy but very slight of frame. Has an extensive medical history that will be scrutinized by teams including malaria, physical trauma and smallpox and rumors of syphilis. Good motor. Very intelligent and makes the most of his physical abilities. Comparisons to Tyler Brayton.

Weaknesses

has to overcome a prior assassination. Death. Age.

Abraham is a pure pass rusher, not an all around DE (same as Freeney). He also hasn't been as durable overall as Julius and teams don't necessarily have to game plan around him.

Stats don't tell the whole story folks.

Abraham would be ineffective in our defensive scheme. I don't know if Abraham can drop back and play pass coverage the way Pep can (and does far too often IMO).
