Not sure how much Buffalo blitzes either.
We don't really blitz either because we haven't had to, we send the 4 man front the majority of the time too. But we can afford to do that because between justin and aldon someone's getting through for at least some pressure on that right side lol.
If I remember correctly dareus is actually mostly being used at NT, which unless you're Suh usually means fewer sacks and more tackles(stuffing the run). Definitely doesn't look like suh so far lol, but guys like him don't come along often.
I think it's interesting that both Aldon and Kaep were guys that played different sports in high school(basketball/baseball), maybe they figure that switching from one sport to another means that these guys are used to having to learn everything from scratch so they're willing to put the work in to get to the next level whereas some guys from college think they know it all and stick to bad habits. So they might have rawer talents but in the end it's the rarer athletic ability as well as a willingness to work(good character guys).
