Lorenzo Mauldin 'tosses aside linemen' in practice
The New York Jets' third-round selection Lorenzo Mauldin has been impressing in training camp so far, and was the 'most impressive sight' at the team's practice on Friday, according to the New York Post. The linebacker excelled in a drill that had pass rushers facing offensive linemen, trying to get around them and ring a bell that was hanging about six feet in the air where the quarterback would be. Mauldin repeatedly beat his man and rang the bell several times.
Mauldin may not get enough time to truly shine this season, but if he proves himself enough to hold down a starting spot in the future, then he could be a fantasy star for years to come. In IDP dynasty leagues he could be a solid mid-round pick with tremendous upside. It could also be good news for the Jets D/ST, as they have long been searching for a dynamic pass rushing threat off the edge, and Mauldin could be their man.
