In all the excitement and anticipation of a revamped Steve Spagnuolo defense for the New Orleans Saints, one name isnít getting used much. It belongs to defensive end Greg Romeus.

It would be easy to do such a thing since not much coverage has been given to Romeus since he was drafted in 2011 by the Saints in the seventh round with the 226th pick.

As a matter of fact, Romeus was the only rookie drafted by the Saints in 2011 that didnít get any playing time during this past season. What was the reason he didnít? The unfortunate answer is injuries.
Romeus suffered knee and back injuries when he played for University of Pittsburgh during his senior year. He tore his anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) in his last college game on November 10, 2010.

Although Romeus would require surgery and not participate in the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine or his college Pro Day, the Saints would still feel the need to take a chance on him.

Romeus spent the entire offseason rehabbing his knee and preparing to make his spot on the Saints roster. Excitement buzzed early but then died down when he was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

Full article.

If he's healthy and spags works on him, he could be come dominant, that goes for junior galette Aswell, spags could create a pass rush from a couple young guys on our d line

I took a quick look at the Giants' roster from 2008 to determine some of the average physical attributes different defenders had on Spags' D back then. Certainly this doesn't give us any real guidelines as to what he looks for in a player at a certain spot, since he wasn't drafting or signing these guys. But, still, I think it can at least tell us something about what type of an average player he used that year on certain positions while having great success against offenses as a whole.

The average DT was 6-4 and 309 lbs

The average DE was 6.4 and 269 lbs

The average LB was 6.2 and 240 lbs


As for the Saints roster from last year...

For DTs only Rogers (6-4 ,350), Miller (6-4, 310), and Johnson (6-3, 288) are close to that average, and Rogers is quite a lot over-weight to have the quickness Spags looks for. Miller is actually an almost carbon copy of the average DT, so he might be someone to look at more closely during the off-season.

For DEs only Charleston (6-4, 265), Jordan (6-4, 287), and Romeus (6-5, 267) fit that average - an average physical attribute which is probably one of the keys why the Giants' DEs are able to deflect so many passes.

For LBs only Humber (5-11) and Dunbar (6-0) fall short of the '08 Giants' average, but this is probably the one spot where the physical attributes have the least affect as far as the defensive schemes are concerned.


I think Johnson could be moved to DE under Spags with ease, since he rotated between being a DE and DT in the CFL, and possesses the speed to be an outside rusher if he only would shed a couple of pounds of extra weight.

Although, if my memory serves me right, Miller got few of his sacks in pre-season, because he was so slow of the line that the guard+center were already concentrating on someone else and let Miller have a free run at the QB.

You're right. I remember that now. He was gawd-awful slow off the snap.
