Apparently on one of those first plays people thought they had seen Leonard run an outside zone and Maualuga, lined up on the opposite side as the outside linebacker, blurred to the spot and was the first to touch him.

"I think some of the guys were even talking they knew him as a head knocker, but he's been shaking some people and showing some athleticism," said left tackle Andrew Whitworth.
