Can't wait to see this young man wreaking havoc on opposing O-lines
I had previously forwarded that clip to my wife. Her comment was, "Cool. He will be fun to watch."
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....

The third was my favorite..
Picking up the center and throwing him at the QB still counts right?
I'm as excited for Vanderdoes as the next guy, but 1v1 drills like this don't really show much. They heavily favor the defensive player. He has no run responsibility, no need to worry about gap integrity, and isn't wearing pads which would both slow him down and give the offensive player something to hold on to. I still think he's going to be a beast, though.

Wellll yea! Lol
You're right, but the issue is not how he looks vs. the blocker, but how he compares to other defensive players in similar drills. That's the impressive part.
