Two new pass rushers were recently added to the Raiders roster. Kony Ealy and Jacquies Smith. Smith has been a journeyman during his 4-year NFL career and his contributions will likely be as depth and special teams player. Kony Ealy, on the other hand, is a very talented player who has the potential to be a major contributor down the road for the Raiders.
Ealy was drafted in the 2nd round in 2014 out of Missouri, a school known for churning out great pass rushing prospects during the few years Ealy attended. Ealy boasts a prototype frame for a defensive end; coming in at 6’4, 275 lbs with over 34-inch arms.
He has a lot of physical talent and has played great in big moments. Most notably he shares the record for number of sacks in a Super Bowl, notching 3.0 sacks for the Panthers against Denver in 2015.
