EB seemed to be settling in last year, particularly in the second half of the season. The one thing EB does well and no one seems to realize is that he is actually pretty good at chasing down and tackling. So while we all like to focus largely on sacks for DEs, EB does chase down the man with the ball.
One of EBs problems is that he was drafted too high and the currency traded for his draft rights was too high. So our expectations of EB are artificially inflated. Kindof like AE, but EB did at least produce and he wasn't that much of a reach at that point in the 2nd round.
I think that is a fair way of describing it.They had a vision of DFeeny and he is physcially quite the exception for a 4-3 DE.I hope Riveria will maximize his ability
