If you asked me who's the first DT who doesn't fit the new defense, I'd say Troup. Most scouting reports projected him as a 3-4 nose for a reason. He's a 2 down run stuffer who lacks lateral agility. He doesn't provide much of a pass rush in a passing league. It also doesn't help that he played in 6 games last year, so he still hasn't gotten much vital playing time compared to his competiton in camp. He's going to be one of the last in rotation and that's if he even makes the team.
