When I envision how the Falcons will play on defense, I truly see the sky being the limit for Jarrett as long as he stays healthy. Not many interior defensive linemen get to double-digit sacks these days. But when you take everything into consideration, not only do I think it’s possible for Jarrett, I actually think it’s likely that he gets to 10 or more sacks this year. Hell, he had three last season when he was barely used as a pass rusher, and now he gets to be lined up in a pass rushing alignment almost every play. That is why Grady Jarrett was an easy choice to be the Falcons’ breakout player of 2017.
*Disclaimer: I’m basing this selection on the assumption that the Falcons will play Jarrett at three technique and Poe at nose tackle, because duh. But in the first preseason game they still had Jarrett at nose and had Poe at three technique. I don’t get it, but if Jarrett isn’t the three technique for the Falcons this season, just disregard this whole column and I’m going to need to find some glue to sniff.
