“If you sack the QB in college you’ll get sacks in the NFL”

Yes. This article is bad at presenting evidence of this but sites like PFF and other evaluators have established that pass rusher is the easiest role to project as pros. This is why we have to take Bosa or Allen or Burns or even Oliver. Get a stud with little risk early because they won’t last into the 3rd.

the only thing that has proven true over the years is there is no sure thing in the NFL draft

Scouts are wrong most of the time and while they might be able to evaluate skills, maybe even "talent" they clearly cannot evaluate desire, passion and work ethic - the #3 pick will get enough money guaranteed to live the rest of their lives - so it's totally subjective if they put in another real day of work after that (gholston)

probably why day 3 and UDFA picks to make it, they just work harder

then why didn't anyone tell the Jets FO when they drafted Gholston?

Gholston opened up everyone's eyes after his 4 sack day against Jake Long (# 1 pick overall in this draft).  He was a "workout warrior" amazing combine and even better pro-day.  His stock soared after that.  Rumors were that BB wanted him for the Pats.  The Pats had the 7th pick and they traded back and took Mayo at 10.
