JIF doesn’t even want this kid. 

Two D players with needs on offense. 

If that's true I'm terrified now

Seems like an immature kid with discipline issues who is prob more of a 1st round talent. Greg Williams better keep him in line and maybe we got a steal

we did need edge

He ran a 4.84. Our new nose tackle is faster. 

 

Hes a dumber Lorenzo Mauldin

Who cares? The guy was a first round pick once the games were played. Great pick.

Agree I was more pointing out why he fell

"Just one year of big-time production, but he's an instinctive rusher with natural feel for attacking the pocket. Polite's frightening speed to the edge on tape was missing in his pre-draft workouts as he showed up much heavier and with purported hamstring issues during all of his testing. The game tape shows an ability to rush the pocket with a fluid, diverse attack, but he might not have the grit necessary to play the run as a 3-4 outside linebacker on early downs. His troubling post-season that included bad combine interviews, bad workouts and additional weight around the midsection has substantially clouded his draft standing into the boom-or-bust category. "

How many guys that tank the combine turn out to be good players?  Couldn't bother to get in shape for his interview, that's not encouraging.

Sounds like a guy you take a flyer on in the 6th round.....

A couple of sites have Polite ranked right next to Winovich.  CBS had him sandwiched between Allen and Sweat!

I've been on the Polite train for a while now.  I would have been fine with Winovich, who was probably the safer pick, but Polite definitely has the higher ceiling.  

Is Kelvin Harmon still out there?  IMO he's a steal at this point in the draft.

Everyone complains that Mac doesn't take a chance, and the in the 3rd they pick up a guy that screwed up at the combine and was a bit out of shape. If this kid hadn't acted like a kid, he was a 1st round pick. A bit of a risk, but he could be a total steal if he gets his act together...

 Gregg Williams says hi

But that's why I'm rooting for the guy. The pre-draft process can tell NFL teams a lot about a player. It can also lead to an enormous misrepresentation. Media members - myself and my co-workers included - and teams pile criticism on these young adults, who are intent upon making a better future for their family. Some teams trash a player because they want to draft him after other teams to pass on that player

Who the **** would write something like this that wasn't directly related to Polite?

Not for nothing but this sounds like he's pretty good on  tape but sucked at the testing.  We'll see if it holds true.

With first round picks, yes.

With lower round picks, he takes risks all the time.
