Rookie Aaron Donald Draws a Triple Team Block

By John Turney

We are only looking back a couple of days, but we wanted to share the fact that Aaron Donald, the rookie defensive tackle for the Rams at least once, drew three blockers.

We don't know if this will be a common thing for him, but it does show a lot of respect. Yes, it is also a function of how many rushers were sent, but it's still a lot of attention for a rookie who is not yet a starter. Donald spelled the regular tackles, and also played in passing situations, both over the center and over the guard and did well.

Here is a shot of the play (clink to enlarge):

We are intrigued with Donald, he looked very quick and will keep you posted—Defensive Rookie of the Year, perhaps?
