Rams got a steal with Donald




Aaron donald, some people were actually complaining that we drafted him, seriously? This kid had two 11 sack seasons, he is one of the best defensive players in the draft if not the greatest (possibly better than clowney) Lets compare them

A lot of people are saying that clowneys last season sacks were low because of double teams and teams figuring out how he played. Donald was double and triple teamed most of his career, looks at his highlights and you will clearly see how he handled double teams, he had 2 11 sack seasons being double teamed so what is clowneys excuse? He also has more tackles and tackles for loss, you can see who contributed to his team better.
I think this was the best player picked in the top 10 let alone top 20, his only knock is his size but look at geno atkins, 6-1 and didn't even dominate college, but is his size a problem in the nfl? He can take over a game by himself, same with donald, but we have 2 game changers on the defensive line already with quinn and long. Brockers is up and coming and is going to be a defensive anchor in the middle, now donald is going to make the rams d-line the fearsome foursome 2.0 with real depth in carrington langford sims and my favorite hayes, get ready rams fans because i see the superbowl in our future with robinson and donald.
