This will be an underrated signing 

Agreed. I loved Shaq Barrett last off-season. Weatherly is my guy this off-season. He's not the pass rusher that Barrett is, but he's a really well-rounded player on the edge.

for those that don't know, he is actually a borderline "force player", which is an athletic metric that correlates fairly closely with pass rushing success. 


the vikings seem to almost exclusively draft force players on the edge and he was just outside being a true force player but it still quite athletic. he lacks pass rush moves but is solid as a rotational guy, i wouldn't feel great about him being a full-time starter. enjoy him carolina!
