Pro Bowl voters don’t take into account the dancing skills of players when voting, because if they did Miami Dolphins defensive end Jared Odrick would be near the top with his Pee Wee Herman sack dance.
But a quick look at the numbers Odrick has put together through 15 games illustrates just how quietly productive he has been. The 6-foot-5, 302-pound versatile lineman is second behind only Cameron Wake in sacks (5), quarterback hits (12) and tackles for loss (11) and though he is listed as a defensive end, Odrick has lined up inside as a tackle on both sides as well and is capable of lining up over the center.
“He can play every position on the line, literally,” said Wake, who was the only Dolphin named to the Pro Bowl yesterday. “It’s one of those situations where he’s like the universal blood donor with O-Type blood. He can do it all. He’s big enough and strong enough to take on another double team from the nose but he’s also quick enough and agile enough to be on the outside rushing as an end on these tackles. You don’t get that combination in a single bodily normally, so he’s an amazing football player.”
As much credit as Wake gives Odrick and the other defensive linemen for helping him reach the Pro Bowl and set a new career-high with 15 sacks, he gives his teammate the same amount of criticism for his signature celebration dance. He had no qualms with calling Odrick’s dance the “worst sack celebration I’ve every been around.”
