I probably need to add here that Darius wasn’t bitter about this at all. It was a matter of fact statement. I think he has proved what he can do for the most part. It’s just that many, the majority of the media included, trumpet Dante’s achievements while totally ignoring what Darius has done.
Dante probably does wind up being a better player by the end of their careers, but Darius has already achieved a lot as a freshman and sophomore, at ages when most other DLs are still just getting a handful of snaps or trying to work their way into that lineup.
That said, I think Darius can be really good. As JEffery Pooler said today, he thinks he’s a linebacker, meaning he’s really active and able to attck and get off blocks.
