there's no shame in this game
walrus is correct sergio kindles cod and hips were horrid for a 34 olb convert prospect...hell that kid was so overrated its not funny...he needed clean looks and straight line looks at that...very stiff hipped...i remember when mayock had him as the 12th rated prospect in that draft heading into the combine and i was like you gotta be kiddin me mike...i wouldn't have touched him in the 3rd damn round
the branch kid this year from clemson is severely overrated also...except unlike kindle branch has pretty good hips and cod...he's just got average get off and pass rush arsenal...kid doesn't have great tools yet he's being talked about as a top 30 pick...buyer beware
as for navarro bowman that kid is legit in his own right...the speed of the 49ers lbs is rediculous...bowman is a key cog
you want to talk about a name who had high end pass rush tools and we should have taken with that pick instead of misi for olb look no further than jason worilds in pittsburgh who i said the day after we drafted koa we should have taken instead of koa because of his pass rush tools and sure enough whenever that kid gets run they are front and center on display...jason worilds has way more going for him from as a pass rusher than koa misi ever damn will...
as for koa i do think he's a solid cover lb as a solb but we don't or we didn't under nolan ask the solb to handle man coverage down the field we asked him to drop into soft zones and handle man coverage in the flats...so the real shut down coverage aspect is pretty much out the window...koa does have nice hips and cod but he lacks explosive closing speed and quick short area acceleration
