He's fast enough to play outside, but big enough to play inside. Slightly bigger than Bennett, and slightly slower than Bennett. He definately has value to us.
Question: coming off of PUP like this, doesn't he get 3 weeks of practice and then the team can decide what to do? Also, I thought he could practice but not be on the active roster.
I'm going to use this post to discuss a tendency we all have to look at height and weight and draw conclusions. No offense meant to you.
Scruggs ran a ridiculous 4.69 40 at almost 280 pounds. He's faster than Bennett and is one hell of an uncommon athlete with really quick feet. Where Bennett excels is short area explosion. He has a pretty nasty burst off the LOS and that's where he's better, in terms of athletic traits, than Scruggs. Scruggs beats Bennett in just about every other physical
category. However, Bennett also plays with some serious violence amplified by that short area explosion(this part is more mental/frame of mind, the violence that is). If Scruggs were to get healthy enough to play he plays along side Bennett on passing downs while rotating in McDonald, IMO. Scruggs is no slouch and we got him for a very good reason. He's one of those special and/or unique athletes that Pete and John talk about. Getting Scruggs on the practice field with Bennett should be very good for him.http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-fantasy/0 ... -3-yd-losshttp://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-fantasy/0 ... -0-yd-loss
I like the trash talking the SF OL on that second one even though the sack just came from playing contain.
