“Vea is as old-school as they come,” the scout said. “He is so powerful, upper body and lower body tied together, that he can create a push almost consistently with a bull rush. He can overpower linemen at the point of attack. That allows him to get that interior push up the field, and then they can loop and stunt off him as well. One of the greatest things about him, and you wouldn’t expect it because of his body type, but in the Super Bowl against Kansas City, they lined him up as a five technique and even a seven outside the edge. They use him in so many different ways, and it really plays to their pass rush, and their pass rush is so important because they are really hurting in the secondary right now. They don’t have their top guys out there. They’re bringing practice squad guys up and bringing guys in off the street and they’re doing things try to manage the situation.
