Dee Ford compared to Von Miller, Derrick Thomas

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...derrick-thomas

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-videos...Shawn-Merriman

General manager John Dorsey recently explained that Dee Ford was selected at No. 23 overall because the Auburn star was the best player left on the Kansas City Chiefs' board and the second-best pass rusher in the draft.

Coach Andy Reid has praised Ford's quickness and athletic ability while rating the outside linebacker's intangibles as "off the charts."

On a more impressive note, Ford's explosive first step has already drawn comparisons to Chiefs Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas and Broncos All-Pro Von Miller.

"If anybody reminds you of Derrick Thomas, that kid should pretty much remind you of Derrick Thomas with his first step," Pro Bowl linebacker Tamba Hali said last week, per The Huntsville Times. "He gets off the ball so fast it's scary. I just kept rewinding (the video) yesterday just looking at his first step. I don't know if he times it, but his first step is incredible."

New teammate Joe Mays, who played with Miller in Denver, sees similar traits in Ford.

"That guys is explosive. He's quick off the ball," Mays said Tuesday, per the Chiefs' official website. "He kind of reminds me of Von Miller with the way that he gets off the ball and gets around the offensive linemen. He's a freak. He knows how to work angles and uses his hands real well. He can bend and do all types of stuff you don't see in the everyday pass rushers. Definitely 'as-advertised'."

The quotes coming out of Kansas City suggest Ford should have been a top-10 draft pick last month.

As much talent as Ford boasts, it's going to be tough for him to challenge for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award while fighting for snaps behind Hali and Justin Houston.

With Hali carrying a prohibitive $12 million salary cap figure in 2015, though, Ford should be a prime "Making the Leap" candidate at this point next offseason.

Funny, there wasn't any 'Dee DT Ford' comparison talk during his last year in college. Now all of a sudden he has a first step equivalent to DT ?
Yup, and Thomas was an absolute monster in college. 27 sacks in 1988, that's ridiculous.

I feel really good about this pick. That speed should pay bigtime dividends and his hand placement/leverage in his hips is spot on.

He needs to learn to diagnose run plays instead of just going uphill for the kill every time. Only problem I had with him.

This pass rush has no reason not to be insane. Added an interior push with Walker and a 3rd from the outside. Helping fix two huge weakness. A big reason people are smoking dope when they say the team did nothing to improve over last year.
