Default What scares me about Dontari Poe

Physically the guy is off the charts, size, strength and athleticism. So based on the measurable why didn't he dominate for Memphis especially in a terrible conference. You can argue the coaching changes and that he was probably double and triple teamed but shouldn't his lack of dominance be a concern?

agree, in a weaker conference, it shouldn't matter if his coaches sucked. based off physical talent he should have shown a lot of flashes regardless, but he didnt.

He will still be drafted long before he gets to #24. The lowest I have seen him go recently in mocks is 15 to Philly.
My hope is for us to draft Hightower and if a NT/DT is the pick I hope it's Worthy from Michigan State. Any game i watched of State last season , Worthy was dominant, high motor and very quick.

Yeah thinking outside the box Worthy is a good possible NT along with another guy Brandon Thompson from Clemson

Poe could be the Ghoulton of this draft... a workout warrior that didn' t carryover to his play on the field. I think there is more emphasis on the tape than on his Combine workouts...

I hope we grab Alameda Ta'amu in the 2nd round. He would be a nice future NT for us. There is a chance Poe is the next Gholston. Hopefully our gang does their homework.

like Ta'amu as well, I would take another Joel Steed clone, maybe not quite Casey but good enough to hold fort for 6-8 years.
