would like to see Dion Lewis with a late pick. but I feel guilty because every time I badmouth Moore, he makes a big play.
Yeah, no. As much as I love Casey Hampton, there are guys out there like Vince Wilfork who do the same things in the run game and still offer more in passing situations. B.J. Raji will probably be at that level by next year.
It's a fact that Hampton constantly plays less than 50% of defensive snaps each game, I'll post the stats if you want me to.
Hampton is just as important to our run defense as Keisel, Smith, and Ziggy are. And to be honest, there isn't much of a drop-off from Hampton to Hoke. That being said, I'm very happy we've got Hampton.
