Re: Re: My Latest Man Crush – The Vernon Butler Thread


Based on your post, I went and watched about 5 videos on him.  I like him, a lot.  He would be someone that can anchor the line in the middle and take on multiple blockers without giving much ground and causing a pile (as you said).#2 rated in the draft is a bit of a reach tho.  I'd be really happy taking this guy in the 2nd round if he is there.  He isnt a rare athlete, just a big strong guy with a motor.

I agree. He is not really a rare athlete but he does have a rare burst and agility for a 325 pound 2 gapper. As a 1 gapper 3 tech he shows a great bull rush and swim move but not much else in the way of pass rush moves. He has tried a spin move a few times but it is not pretty. Nobody else has him rated as high as I do. I am assuming he will be drafted in the back end of the 1st round. If it were me I would have to consider him at No.9 overall just because his ceiling is so high. He has a higher ceiling than any DT I have seen since McCoy and Suh because of his combination of size power and agility but he is a totally different player than both of those two.I love his attitude too.
