I've been telling people since he got drafted I'm just looking for an excuse to call him my favorite player.
Here are a few excuses right here. He has been referred to as an extremely vocal leader with one of those non stop motors in practice. All this seems to be evident on the practice field.
Lamarr plays to the whistle every single play, and brings a dynamic that is increasingly more popular among todays defensive ends.
The former Texas Longhorn is also a former all American RUNNING BACK AND LINEBACKER. The huge advantage i see to this is his understanding of pursuit angles and just flat out toughness. So he gets into a few scuffles in practice, thats all intensity.
And I'm not the only one who notices he could be special. Mel Kiper has changed his tune after breaking down footage on Houston. He even goes as far as to compare him to Gerald McCoy in terms of the impact he could have on a team.
In the national Championship game he barreled through Alabama's highly
decorated cast of offensive lineman and tallied up linebacker type tackle totals from the DT spot (10 tackles, 1 sack, and buncha hurt feelings.) At defensive end he has the size speed and tenacity make plays that make the news.
