Re: Sophomore spotlight falls on Sheldon Rankins, David Onyemata with Saints facing Nick Fairley uncertainty

Cam Jordan, Rankins, Onyamata and Okafor/Hendrickson/Kikaha. Onyamata basically put up half the pressures and QB hurries that Fairley did last year and will not be as effective until he's a little more seasoned. I mean he didn't even play football until he went to college in Canada four years ago. He played well while learning on the fly last year and I expect him to make a sophomore leap but I can't expect the same pressure from Onyamata that Fairley would have if healthy.

The way I see it Onyamata is a good run stuffer and Davison is good at rushing the passer.( I may have these two confused) My point is that between the two of them we should be more than adequate in the middle with a little additional pressure coming off the edge on the right side opposite Cam.

Actually Rugs, Saints have Onyemata listed as a DL and rightfully so...

He relieved Cam Jordan often and early last season at DE; his athleticism/size makes him very versatile...

Onyemata has pretty much learned the pass rush tree if you will - Rip, Bull Rush, Stunt and Spin...

All Ony needs to do know is learn how and when to use those moves like a MLB Pitcher learns to set up a batter for the strikeout...

And Onyemata is very close and I wouldn't be surprised if he's starting several games based on matchup by the end of this season...

Hope he makes an impact. He started to make some plays as the year went on
