Defensive Tackles: Terrance Knighton(notes), Jacksonville Jaguars

Football Outsiders keeps a stat called "Stops", which tracks successful plays stopped by a defender based on down, distance and opponent. In the NFL through Week 11, there is one player with a total Stop Rate (stops divided by plays in which he is involved) of 100 percent, and it's Terrance Knighton of the Jags. The second-year tackle has four sacks and an interception, but unless you're Ndamukong Suh(notes), stats can be deceiving for defensive tackles, because they're generally soaking up blockers so that other defenders can make plays. But put simply in Knighton's case, he's had 25 total plays in which he's been involved through Week 11, and he's prevented successful first-down yardage (percentage of needed yards on first down, 60 percent of needed yards on second down, and 100 percent of needed yards on third or fourth down) and drive-extending yardage on every single one. Again, no other player in the NFL this season has done so well in this regard.

It's nice to see his hard work and performance are getting recognition outside of Jax. 

I can only imagine how sick our interior D-Line will be once we get D'Anthony Smith back and Alualu has a year of experience under his belt.
