How Saints DT Sheldon Rankins turned a basketball move into his best weapon as a pass rusher

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It was nice to see young Sheldon make his move on MNF forcing a FG vs TD; in fact, I'd consider it and the PF on Montae Nicholson key turning points in the game......

On that Hardee INT ... anyone else notice Rankins hauling ass down field to block? He ran at least 70 yards in a FULL SPRINT. Never mind he's a biscuit with jelly away from 300 lbs. Or on that unfortunate turnover from Meredith ... that beast of a tackle#71 Ramz chased that defender, cornered him and prevented him from scoring?

Just the little things. You can't coach heart & hustle.

Rankins hustles and plays a position that others get noticed.

I believe it was in the first quarter, Chris Thompson caught a screen and had blockers out in front - Could have been a long gain, Rankins hustled and stopped him after 4 yards.

He has been doing that all year and it really pops out on the screen. He is coming into his own.
