    Yeah they do. Ryan leaf was projected to be worthy of the number one pick overall, and how did that turn out. You really can't prove anything based on draft status.

    Why would you draft a guy at 28 that doesn't seem to be worthy of the pick.

    the 'plan' for tapper/mayowa would not be consistent with the rumors that they wanted harris and takk.

    JJ watt flashed his rookie year. Taco should show signs of the same before too long.

    I acknowledge that Taco may improve in a short period by figuring out what he CANT do against an NFL caliber player. If he is eventually going to have it then we should start seeing flashes of it before too long. I hope we see it.

    One really good play that shows his potential upside would do wonders for the patience of this fan base. I'm not talking about him getting an unblocked sack which would mean nothing.

    I am talking about something that shows that he is progressing as a player against real NFL competition.

    I agree with that. But Taco was the player that was on the board when they drafted. I find it hard to believe they think Taco is the answer at right end. I am spitballing as to why they drafted him that high. It's all conjecture at this point.

    yes they are obviously not football stupid, given 2016 draft results.
    they felt the need for a DE and taco checks the physical specs boxes.
    but once they said RDE, they create expectations.

    it is really early and he probably is thinking too much.
    technique will take longer to develop and show up.
    have hope because taco may yet turn out spicy.

    Not worthy based on what?


    He has really good measurables and he produced in college.


    Were you expecting a player that is closer to reaching his full potential at pick 28? Those guys usually go top 10 and even those guys take time to develop or never develop at all.


    We need this guy to be a solid pro given the investment. Anything more then that is a bonus but this player does have upside.

    It's going to take some time though. Technique & strength is needed and both can be taught.

    He did more than show up, he was the best player on the field.

    Taco played against undrafted free agent Pace Murphy. Taco played lackluster at best. No he didn't get steamrolled but he sure didn't play good at all. Taco is a bust.

    That was nice to see.

    But the Rams have the worst offensive line in the NFL, so let's temper our enthusiasm, eh?

    He beat an undrafted free agent from Northwestern State on that play, you understand.

    Loved Taco's inside power on the sack. Got into his guy, then used his power to slip inside on him and shed him.

    Showed a nice closing burst and finish as well. He can help us.

    You can only play who lines up against you-- and he did what he was supposed to do against inferior conpetition: destroy them.

    Besides that-- you can tell Taco set him up, then physically dominated and executed his move. Shows he understands the "game within the game" and is listening to Rod.
