    Nice little blurb on Kampman.


    Kampman, Peppers boast many moves

    For this week’s edition of the NFList, we polled a panel of NFL insiders on this topic: Who are the league’s craftiest pass rushers? Defensive ends and defensive tackles were both considerd, and respondents participated on condition of anonymity.

    1. DE Aaron Kampman | Packers— “I like his style,” said one personnel man familiar with the productive Green Bay end. Said another respondent: “He knows how to use the tackle’s mistakes to his advantage. He uses his hands very well and uses leverage well.”

    2. DE Julius Peppers | Panthers— Opined one respondent about Peppers, who notched more than 10 sacks in four of his first five NFL seasons, “He’s a freak of nature. Can power rush when he needs to, but puts a lot pressure with his edge speed.”

    3. DE Jared Allen | Chiefs— The secret to Allen’s success, said one coach, is that “he’s very flexible. He’s a (strong) lower-body guy.” The respondent also noted that Allen is an “efficient pass rusher … (who) has multiple things he can use to get to the quarterback.”

    4. DE Jason Taylor | Dolphins—Taylor, as one coach noted, “looks like a swimmer” when it comes to his build, but there’s no doubting the veteran’s craftiness and importance to the Miami defense. Taylor has shown the ability to develop a “move off of a move,” as the coach noted.

    5. DE Mark Anderson | Bears— “Kind of fools you a little bit,” one personnel man said. “(He’s) kind of unorthodox. You don’t think he’s that athletic, (and) that’s where he’s underestimated.”

    Others mentioned: Colts DE Dwight Freeney, Rams DT La’Roi Glover, Bears DT Tommie Harris, Chargers OLB Shawne Merriman, Chargers OLB Shaun Phillips, Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware, Saints DT Brian Young, 49ers DE Bryant Young.

    I loved watching the Chargers game when Rivers would hand it off to Tomlinson going right. Kampman would blow it up and Hawk, Barnett, and Co. would come piling in there chasing him to the sidelines for a four yard loss.

    LT wanted no part of trying to be brave running that way. The sidelines were his best friend that day.

    What's good about Kampman is he's just as good against the run as pressuring the QB.

    Wow, it is impressive to see Kampman on top of a list like that, and to think, "That's our guy!"

    yeah LT got so frustrated when he would try and run outside on Kampman's side. It was kinda funny, cuz he just kept going sideways, and sideways, and sideways, and when it was over, LT lost 4 yards.

    Kampman is a stud, I'm glad he got re-signed.
