He could've gotten her a bigger house if he ate less of her home cooked meals these last couple of months. Just sayin. 

 

Anyway, just kidding, seems like a good kid; not every 20 year old is totally dialed, Jets may or may not have done their homework. At least he seems like a football player and not a combine work out warrior like Hill or Gholston. 

Of course, fans on here would complain either way, so there's that. :-)

I, too, honor my mother by alienating all of my potential employers by being the worst possible candidate for a job at the time of the interview.

So that's why you do it?

I thought you were dropped on your head.

He is a young kid who got some bad advice from his agent and didn't handle an interview well. Yet, many are calling him a character issue type of pick. Mac rolled the dice on him, if he can turn it around and the coaching staff can mentor him, he could be a steal.

Why do we expect guys to exhibit a level of self awareness and maturity beyond their age? He's 21 years old and clearly comes from a poor family. So it's not like he's a world traveler with enriched real life experiences. He seems like a good kid who will benefit greatly if he manages to surround himself with the right people. 

I don’t think any of those “enriched real life experiences” are going to turn Polite into a high-level professional athlete, but we’ll see. Weird draft pick is all I’m saying. Even his coaches apparently didn’t like him.

This was a steal pick. He had a bad hammy in the offseason which probably contributed to his weight gain and his poor combine performance

 

His bad 40 must be for a reason? You what’s the video and he’s in the backfield in a blink of an eye.

What does a 40 time tell us about a pass rusher anyway? I could see other drills being meaningful but it doesn't matter how quickly a pass rusher can run 40 yards in a straight line. That's not something they're doing on the football field unless they're chasing down a big play from behind.

If,if,if. That's the problem. You don't know what the kid will be. You don't take guy with attitude if you can't handle him. Williams probably can but this kid may not respond to his style. We will see.

If only we had some sort of way of measuring if what we think we’re seeing on film matches up to something empirically measurable.

Agreed T Suggs ran a 4.84 40 when he came out. I would say his career turned out fine .

Hoping like heck this kid turns out to be the steal of the 2019 NFL draft. 

All we can do at this point...

Sorry, I thought you were trying to make a point. I'm not really into playing the moving target game on an internet discussion board.

It wasn't like the kid ran wild, smoked weed, and wrecked his car. His agents gave him bad advice to bulk up and he got injured. I guess those asking for Mac should take a chance only meant in the 1st? It is a shame, however, because we know that most 3rd round picks have like a 98% chance to stick and Mac passed up tons of can't miss prospects at LT, WR, etc.

But, yeah, I don't know what the kid will be; this is why the draft is a crap shoot. I just don't think the 'attitude' questions are all that valid.

Polite isn't slow. That's not the problem with the 40. The problem with the 40 is he's an a$$hole. That's the problem with everything. If you get the player you see on the field, it should cost you a lot more than 68. That it didn't should tell you all you need to know. But if not you can ask his college coaches or basically anybody from any team besides the Jets who's dealt with him.

Looking at it objectively, 

Good:

1. Great production 

2. Intriguing tape

 

Bad:

1. Disaster triangle numbers 

2. Disaster interview process

3. Character red flags from every corner

Personally, I’m stunned we couldn’t fine someone with all good and no bad in the 3rd round, a good GM like Idzik would have nailed it

That's now TWICE in this thread that posters mentioned that his coaches didn't like him. I know it's the posters who are just looking to be negative but I mean put a quote with it if thats what your claim is.

Which coach?  Lol then the guy says "there's a bad track record of pass rushers from Florida" like that has anything to do with Polite. Amateur reporting.

Doesn’t one of his Florida coaches now work for the Jets?

Can’t have hated him that much.

Not at all, most teams were able to get guys who had incredible film, killed the combine, and also have letters of recommendation from Gandhi, mother Theresa and AOC, we really botched it missing all those guys
