I keep hearing about him in DT discussions, and seems that a lot of people like him. I live in Northern Virginia, and try to catch as many games as I can, but I never really got a good look at Kearse.
But yeah, was just curious as to his style, what he did/didn't do well. (specifics, I guess. I should have payed more attention when I could have)


Plus, I think he has a badass name.

Frank Kearse just sounds defensive tackle-ish.
I'm really curious about the guy.

7th round 320+ NT from Alabama a&m we snatched up off the dolphins ps. was a rookie last year, and still played pretty well. takes double teams on pretty decent and is hard to move.

Yeah I've heard a lot about him being the best on our team. Big boy, man. I really hope he keeps it up and does well, then. Where would you guys say he is in respect to the position itself? Possibly starter worthy one day or backup?

I like Kearse, but I like Neblett much better. He's going into his 3rd year, and I truly believe it could be his break out year.

With Rivera, hopefully we can develop young FAs instead of watching them decline every season until they're cut.

I can't wait to see how Kearse plays next season. Our team is talking about developing him as if he's a first rounder.

Neblett is a stud and should be our starting 3 technique, if you ask me. His pro day (2010) measurables.
Height: 6000
Weight: 297
Bench Press: 33
Vertical Jump: 30.5"
40 T: 4.93

That is a pretty good athlete.

McClain, a third round pick with similar collegiate stats:
Height: 6015
Weight: 291
Vertical Jump: 28"
40 T: 4.96

I think we have the makings of a pair of stud 3 technique DTs. We shall see.

Kearse is a load in the middle...tough against the run and did have a nice sack near the end of the year...looked much better than our 3rd round DTs

We can roll with our DT situation for 1-2 more years to see if any changes need to be made. We have alot of young depth to develop.

They are more UT's no?

Also Shirley and Kearse are going to be the future.

I think with an offseason of work to work on strength and technique will do wonders for Shirley, kearse, McClain and fua. But having shirley and kearse in the middle would be great, they already have the size, they look much more intimidating in the middle

True. Very true. Which is why I'm freaking excited about actually having an Offseason and mini camps and OTA's. This should help them out a ton.

I think the most interesting camp battle will be which defensive tackles Ron keeps on the 53 man roster
