San Francisco 49ers NT Quinton Dial only played three games during his rookie season, but do not think for a second that he doesn’t have a mean streak. A key player that was an anchor on Crimson Tide’s defensive line, Dial has been known to get dirty down in the trenches. A physical player that shows no mercy, Dial will do whatever is necessary to bring pain to his opponents and quarterbacks are not omitted.

Watch Dial just unload on Georgia QB Aaron Murray after an interception by the Crimson tide. And despite no flag being thrown, one should have resulted as it was clearly a head shot. However, this just goes to show that Dial does have a mean streak and with him likely getting more playing time in his sophomore season, do not be surprised if he gets dirty.
