Minkah and Troy are two totally different style players. Troy was a wild man with the freedom to freelance at any time Bill Cowher saw he was special and let him do his thing. Troy's true strength was playing near the LOS and blowing up plays with sacks ,deflections and TFL. I don't see Minkah blowing up plays and throwing himself at people with reckless abandon like Troy used to. Minkah is probably closer to Ed Reed line him up deep and be a ball hawk, problem with that is offenses will throw towards Edmunds until their arm falls off. Like others have said pressure up front helps the DB's and tight coverage on the backend helps generate pressure by making the QB go to that second or third read.
