Funny. Clearly your not a Cowboy fan so it clouds your thoughts. Pretty hard to determine a players potential before they take a snap in the NFL. With that its pretty strong to say they blew the pick. If in the next few years Elliott is a top 5 RB and returns the offense to 2014 form its hardly blowing it. Ramsey looks to be a great player too. But Dallas needed to put a top RB behind that OL before contracts split it up as much as a top DB. The RB helps crown the OL, reduces the QB hits and frees up the passing game. Ramsey may not have as big an impact in Jacksonville as Elliott will have in Dallas. We will see.........
Strengths: Nice height, size, and build ... Supreme versatility; Can play 4-3 SAM, 3-4 OLB ... Do-it-all linebacker in the appropriate schemes ... Athletic enough to be a consistent force in the pass rush ... Takes appropriate angles to ball-carriers ... Excellent strength ... Able to shake offensive linemen and make the tackle ... Highly productive and consistent playmaker even with the loss of Chris Long ... Will be an outstanding leader.
Weaknesses: Isn't able to sink his hips and play the Tampa 2 defense ... Has only two pass rush moves: rip and swim ... Isn't always as tough in the run game defense as he should be ... Should be forcing more fumbles.
Summary: You have to love Sintim's build. He can play a lot of positions and he has a good feel for the game who gives it his all ... Underrated propspect who could shock many people and go in the top 20 picks.
Player Comparison: Julian Peterson. Both players can play the same positions and are athletic enough to be consistent pass rushers.
