Justin Smith


Recommended Posts

Eh I thought Justin was a great 4-3 end who gave it his all on every play,Sure he didn't have high sack numbers.

He also had no talent around him when he was here where 49ers have tons

After his rookie year, his sack total fell off dramatically. He had (and really still has) a single move - bull rush. That doesn't get to the QB too often in a 4-3. He essentially became a good run stopping end. Nice, but not particularly a hard-to-find kind of player. There's no question that the d line in SF is better now than the Bengals line was when Smith was here, but he's pretty much the same player to my eye. His talent just fits that scheme better. To your point, his main contribution is demanding double teams and allowing Aldon Smith to rack up huge sack numbers.
