when i say put in check, i mean nullify.
some can make it work at the next level, some can't.
people compare fairley to guys like sapp and (for some godforsaken reason) suh... he may be as quick, but he isn't as strong as either.
he's going to need both at the nfl level.
You're basing this on what? Some secret lockerroom footage? Combine hasn't occurred yet.
He absolutely man handled some OL at the point of attack with brute strength. Does that make him Suh? Of course not, but he has a chance to be every bit as good.
Suh is a freak, but you don't have to be a freak to be worthy of the first pick. I like Sedrick Ellis who has solidified the Saints front four.
I'd be happy with Fairley first or Dareus around 4-6 IF that could happen. My observations on Dareus are strictly academic, but I've had the chance to watch Fairley and he just dominates.
