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.

The only thing is, Ford's arms are about an inch shorter than Miller's.

Ford: 32 7/8" arms

Miller: 33 1/2" arms

Some people might not think that it makes much of a difference but it really does. Part of the reason why I didn't rate Ford as a top 25 player in the draft was because of that lack of arm length. He's going to have to play with perfect technique and have the best snap anticipation in the NFL if he's going to win against OTs who average over 34" in arm length.

.625" Is not a big deal.

But Ford's dick is 2 inches longer so he makes up for it there.

Look around the league. The best edge rushers almost all have arms that are 34" long.

The only good player that I can even think of with arms that are less than 33" long is Trent Cole at 32 7/8".

Sorry man but a little over half an inch is not going to make or break a player in ANY circumstance.
