    Yeah I guess I wasn't clear. It wasn't exactly a list in order of talent but really just a guess of what would be there at 28.

    Agree
    Any your 5th best pass rusher may be my 3rd best anyway

    I agree, we just do not know but soon we will find out if he is indeed available. :)

    The Jerry comment we just do not know how far that applies to an injured player, is it only a Jaylon type injury and redshirt player or a player that may be unavailable for game action until October, we simply do not know yet.

    Been asking for about 3 months now for someone to show me evidence of Takk getting a sack using a pass rush move, good hand usage, or speed and agility to bend around the edge....still waiting.
    Hustle and effort is nice and all, but if he can't consistently beat OT's in the NFL he's going to be mediocre, at best.

    Not that I disagree completely, but moves & hand usage are something that a lot of these prospects could improve on.

    If he got 10 sacks from just running real fast, stands to reason he can get much better with some NFL coaching

    Flexibility is a hard thing to teach...

    And he didn't get sacks from running real fast. NFL QB's won't hold onto the ball as long as Pac 12 QB's. 2nd effort sacks isn't a realistic way to make a living as a DE in the NFL.

    In this draft the 2nd best safety is the easy choice for me. Adams and Hooker are generally considered 1 and 2, mostly in that order. Hooker is my favorite player in this draft and has potential to be elite. Even if you rate them in reverse Adams has elite potential as well.

    If all prospects from big programs were perfectly coached then the vast majority of players would never show anything but linear progression that comes with playing time and experience. Thankfully we know that not to be true.

    We aren't talking about subtle nuances to make him better. We are taking about the basic fundamentals of playing the position that should be taught in high school. If you think Mora Jr and Tom Bradley (2 defensive gurus) didn't try and teach him hand use or pass rush moves you're crazy.

    I mean we see this every year. Often a guy who is more physically talented just leans on that ability to produce and no coach can get through to them.

    Put them up against Tyron Smith and suddenly perhaps they start to listen.

    I'm not a fan of his at 28 but I'm not so overly concerned about his raw technique.

    Some college coaches don't go that far coaching up the really good players. The player has limited time and they don't want to change the player's natural style or to make him start over-thinking. Also, coaches spend a lot of time trying to coach up the weak positions on the team.

    It's one of the reasons many QBs come out of college with poor mechanics. The college coach often doesn't want that QB to have to learn to play with different mechanics, so they just coach him on the non-mechanics part of playing QB.

    We really need to stop drafting injured players. I'm not a fan of the 3/4 OLB position that he seems to fit better either.

    You might want to watch Smith and Takk play before you say something like this?
