I remember Paul Holmgren after Sbisa's rookie season said he thought Sbisa was going to grow at least two inches over the summer. Pretty sure that doesn't happen when you're 19. It was just insane listening to Holmgren talk about Sbisa like he was some sort of atypical human specimen. Or like a father who talks up his son to the high school football coach. "Listen coach, my kid can throw. I play catch with him every day in the backyard."
