Gholston the Next Terrell Suggs?

The National Football Post reports that Jets D-line coach Mark Carrier thinks that Vernon Gholston can be the next Terrell Suggs, this even though Gholston hasn’t had a pro sack yet.

New Jets defensive line coach Mark Carrier sees a little Terrell Suggs in Vernon Gholston. The Jets are converting Gholston, who has yet to record his first sack, to defensive end this year. The former sixth pick in the draft has bounced around between linebacker and defensive end previously, but Carrier told Dan Pompei of the National Football Post that he thinks Gholston can thrive if he can hone in on one position. Gholston is bulking up to 270 after playing ten pounds lighter, and he’s trying to play with more power. In order to better understand how his skills fit the position, Gholston has been watching tape of Suggs.
