It’s not fair to judge an NFL draft class before it matures, but early indications point to a check mark on first rounder Ryan Kerrigan.

Maaaybe a check-plus.

Kerrigan has played lights-out football so far, twice being nominated for the NFL Rookie of the Week award, and already taking home honors for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for September.  On the season, he has 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception, and a touchdown.

  • That’s more interceptions than Troy Polamalu.
  • And that’s more touchdowns than Tashard Choice and Larry Johnson combined.

For fans of the flowing locks, however, don’t expect them back any time soon–the tidy look is in.

“I think so, for now at least,” he said with a laugh.  “I’ve been thinking about growing it back, but it’s a long commitment to make, to get it back to where it was.  We’ll see.”

As far as the Captain America nickname?  That works–except that Captain America grew up playing with Ryan Kerrigan action figures:
