Again... the Patriots don’t really use traditional edge rushers.... look for our quick linebackers on blitz’s rather.Thanks @BigNastyFish , always enjoy John Congemi's analysis, even if these days everything is really short for phones and Facebook. I hope he's right about Van Ginkel … because I saw him get very little pressure that wasn't schemed up, so I'm not sure he's really an edge rusher. Van Ginkel tests well, and he does his job, so this is a good scheme fit for him. Not sure he'll beat out Jerome Baker or Kiko Alonso though, so we may see him mostly on special teams this year.
Michael Deiter though, I'm a huge fan, and am confident he will anchor our LG position for the next decade. Great pick. He is smart, hard working, big, strong, physical, fairly quick, and unbelievably durable … an ability we've needed across the OL for a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.
