Bills need Shaq to pan out because outside of him and possibly Preston Brown and Dareus (And who knows how much longer Dareus will be here) the primary players on the front 7 are older. Hughes is 31, Kyle is 34, Lorax is 34, Humber is 30, and there aren't a lot of young players behind them that you can say are the heir apparent.
Shaq could be a guy that this D-line gets built around for years but if he busts then the Bills might have to invest multiple early round picks in the front 7,
Shaq has already made a strong statement this season. Good pick, based on his work under Frazier and the Crazy Marine. He brings a great feature to the D Line.
Hughes is on fire and moving all the time. twitching and bending and stunting.
Lawson is driving his blocker backwards quite often. He also turns his guy with his strength now and again.
Last season was a wash for the whole defense, we know that now. and the Kid was surely not full go and behind on mental aspects.
BTW i do not care if he gets one sack I really don't. Except for his sake and satisfaction.
As long as he gets pressure and keeps that run game funneled back inside to the Bills LBs.
He's no Chris Kelsay though! Excepting he does seem to bring his lunch pail and just do his work
He will improve plenty yet. I feel pretty confident about it. Just try not box him in as LT because of his draft position please.
