did he tear his acl last season or was it 2008????
any durability concerns on him????
i heard he has short arms and his hand use is poor any truth in that?
He tore his ACL 1st game of the 2008 season, so teams will obviously check his knee. His arm length is 32 3/4, which I think may be fine, but I am not sure. That could be cutting it close.
Here is cbssportsline write up on Jeff.
Pass rush: Pass-rush technique is still developing. Has marginal burst off the snap and good effort to push the pocket, but lacks the lateral agility or closing speed to threaten the passer on a consistent basis. Flashes the initial quickness to pressure the quarterback, but doesn't re-direct well and is only a marginal athlete.
Run defense: Short and wide-bodied in the middle. Marginal initial quickness off the snap. Good team defender who understands his role to control a gap. Violent hands to control the action, but doesn't have the athleticism to chase down ballcarriers. Can hold up at the point of attack -- even the flashes the ability to beat the double-team -- but too often loses the leverage battle. Good effort in pursuit when he's fresh, but was in a deep rotation and ran short of energy quickly. Explosion: Only marginal initial burst off the snap, but shows explosive upper-body strength to knock offensive linemen into the pocket. Only adequate lateral agility or straight-line speed in pursuit. Flashes some pop as a hitter, but is too inconsistent in this area.
Strength: Excellent natural upper-body strength. Boasts a 535-pound bench press. Good strength to hold up at the point, despite regular double-team blocking. When he plays with good pad level, his lower-body strength is enough to anchor against the double-team.
Tackling: Is a strong drag-down tackler with the strength to slip off blocks and catch backs as they run past. Flashes some explosiveness as a hitter when given space to gain momentum.
Intangibles: Team leader and representative for Georgia at the preseason SEC Media Day. One of 106 student-athletes nominated for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which honors college football players who make outstanding contributions in the areas of volunteerism and civic involvement. Missed all but the first game of the 2008 season due to a torn ACL.
