    Has rare size and good football intelligence. Is quick off the ball, reads and reacts quickly and neutralizes blockers. Has good foot quickness and agility to move down the line of scrimmage for an in-line tackle. Also has a short burst to the ball and quarterback. Is big and strong and can two-gap and dominate.Has a quick get-off and is hard to block. Fights through traffic and is seldom on the ground. Has a good spin move and excellent motor. Has not missed a game, is productive and athletic. has good feet for a 300+-pounder and has a feel for the ball. Can hold his own against the double-team when he keeps his pads low. Loves the weight room.

    Sounds like just what we need.......
    You didn't list Kennedy's negatives, which turned out to be prophetic.

    Doesn't play low, meaning he doesn't "get" leverage. Poor conditioning. Doesn't really know how to use his hands to fight blockers. Inconsistent. Stamina issues. Tends to raise himself up too much, comes up high at the snap.

    All fatal flaws in someone trying to play NT. Really, each one in its own right is a fatal flaw for a wannabe NT.

    From what I saw last year, he played a lot better at the 3-technique spot when they used him there some in the last couple of games. He was better at penetrating gaps and disrupting than at tying up blockers and winning in-line wrestling matches.
