    Any thoughts as to how well Olivier Vernon performed in his rookie season?

    This. He seemed to be in the right place a lot. I'm definitely happy to have him. You can never have enough pass rushers. I'll give him another season before I make any judgements.

    I have high hopes for this boy. I honestly would love to be in a situation like the Colts are with Freeney and Mathis with Wake and Vernon

    Cam Wake rushed the QB 559 and had 15 sacks, 87 total quarterback "disruptions" (sacks + hits + hurries), 3 forced fumbles, 3 tackles for a loss, 1 pass defense, and 53 total tackles. He did this while all opposing teams completely focused on stopping him, and having little regard on any other pass rusher on the team. Wake IS the standard and not just for the Dolphins.

    Vernon, this season, rushed the QB 289 times, with 3.5 sacks, 7 hits, 11 hurries, 1 FF. This isn't anything even average for a pass rusher, but for a slow footed rookie playing in limited snaps, who is still learning his position - he did well enough for where he was picked. He is still learning behind Wake and if he drops some weight to improve his speed, he could be a beast with his strength and "heavy" hands, which is above average. Also, he was a highlight reel on Special Teams by himself and was selected to the Pro Football Focus ALL AFCE Team for special teams.

    I like Vernon and think he will be much improved as a pass rusher in the next few seasons. I still think we add more pass rushers regardless though...

    Vernon also missed a season of college ball before being drafted. His effort was there all year, now he just needs to add technique and experience and he'll be a solid contributor. I like him.
