http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/reiss_pieces/2008/07/andre_tippetts.html The best 2nd Rd pick in Patriots' history. He was stritctly used as a pass rusher in college at Iowa and because teams didn't know if could drop off in space he didn't go in the 1st Rd. This guy was always a difference maker, when he showed up at Iowa they were mired in a streak of 19 consecutive losing seasons and by the time he left they were Big Ten champs and Rose Bowl bound. In the NFL he was overshadowed by the real LT, who moved all around the Giants D to get his sacks. In the Pats D at the time, Tippett only played on the left side which I believe brought down his sack numbers. He was as good as anyone in the history of the league coming off the edge. He was unblockable at times because those blocking him never knew whether he was going to run around them or over them. He made it look easy out there with speed, agility, strength and athleticism. 5x Pro Bowler and member of NFL all decade 1980's team. Very deserving member of the Hall of Fame. Congrats Mr. Tippett!!
