Something I came across on ESPN today. What makes this more aggravating is the fact that Pierre-Paul, who everyone expected us to draft has 12 sacks, 10 passes defensed, and 3 forced fumbles so far in a year and a half. Pouncey was on the board too. Alualu so far has 4.5 sacks, 2 passes defended, and no forced fumbles. I like Alualu as a player and a person, but some may have been right. Maybe we did reach.

"Pro Football Focus says Knighton’s been productive four games in a row, but scored Alualu poorly over the same span, with an especially bad game in Week 4 against New Orleans.
Overall, Knighton is 27th in the website's defensive tackle ratings and Alualu is 77th of 78 rated players. Their work against the run is judged superior to their work rushing the quarterback."
