On the other hand, Onwualu, slow in straight line speed apparently is very quick, with great football speed and anticipation. Our coaches are talking him up.

Gus talks about doing new things, and having input from defensive assistant coaches, so look for different looks.
You have a point. (Sanding should take care of that. )
I don't believe Chu will play OTTO ahead of a healthy Emanuel but we'll see.
IMO his edge rush speed is better applied at LEO.

I know the first thing I thought of when I saw these plays were, "wow, that guy is such a bust".

A nice little article with some breakdown, a few still shots and a couple of videos from different angles.

As important as Bennett has been to that D, I fully expect Bosa to have a much greater impact playing that role for us. Bigger, stronger, faster and just scratching the surface of what he can do.

We'll start to see how it pans out 6 long weeks from now.
When we go back to college, you hit things right on the head. Ingram was never a sack specialist. At South Carolina he played all over the D. They lined him up all over the place. Versatile, not a sack guy. THAT is what makes his sack totals the last two years so impressive.

Attaochu was an edge rusher sack specialist. That was his role at Georgia Tech, that was what was projected of him in the draft for the pro's.

It would be huge for him to stay healthy and contribute this year. He is one guy that I think can really benefit from Bradley whispering.

Attaochu can learn from Ingram and realize his potential too. I'm not giving up on him yet.

In his interview Bradley speaks to the importance of seeing the players in pads. What has been done so far is training and experimentation to see how players respond in different roles.
He expects to see individuals stand out when the pads go on.
