A lot of Patriots fans liked Ryan Kerrigan heading into this year’s draft including FOPP’er Kristin over at The Foxhole, with the people who were writing him off (like yours truly) unconvinced he could play OLB in the 3-4 defense. Of course the Patriots ended up going to primarily a 4-3 defense this year and then Nick Caserio drops this nugget today:
Ryan can play in any system. Good football player, tough, smart, instinctive, strong, disruptive player, causes a number of fumbles, which he’s caused four [of] to this point in this season for the Redskins. He can play in any defense. It doesn’t matter what front you’re playing, what defense you’re playing; he can probably play in any of them.
So uh, yeah…
At least it will be good to see the young pass rusher this weekend, hopefully it’s just not in our backfield or anywhere near TFB.
