    He was one of the most productive DE's in the draft class and he did it against the toughest competition. And no, he's had the same amount of sacks under 3 seconds with guys like Mingo ro Dion Jordan..

    Which means absolutely nothing.

    Not sure if you saw my edit. He was a half a sack away from being 2nd in the country in sacks. He was regarded as one of the best players at the senior bowl and many called him the top DE at practice even when moving to the opposite side he played in college. Crazy for an unathletic, unimpressive player.
    2014 MOCK DRAFT:
    1. CJ Mosley (Alabama, LB)
    2. Odell Beckham Sr. (LSU, WR)
    3. Tre Mason (Auburn, RB)
    4. Anthony Steen (Alabama, OG)

    Production out of context means nothing.

    Lets not forget Greg Jones was like 2nd in college football in tackles, and Tyler Sash I believe led CFB in interceptions.

    Dont care about his college production. Meaningless.

    Hes not a quick twitch, doesnt have any burst, and isnt overly strong either. Hes a guy who beat people in college with technique.

    It wont translate particularly well.

    NFL ready, but no upside at all.

    It means nothing when a guy is claiming that a player is "shooting up" draft boards? Hmmm
