Jachai Polite vs Chase Winovich

IMO Winovich has a higher floor but a much lower  ceiling. The question is do you want a guaranteed (or highly likely) quality player or do you want to shoot the moon and take a risk.  Polite hasn't peaked yet physically, and needs to grow up. Winovich prepares better and has peaked. If Polite can get his act together (and that clearly is a risk), and get in shape he can be a play-maker for the next 5 years. Here is hoping...

I dont think his bust potential is as high as people think. he is motivated and added the weight on purpose according to the interview, then hurt his hamstring. I think he will be the better pro based on his college production against a great competition

He is more motivated now than before the draft?  Adding weight caused him to be a slug and to injure his hamstring?  Maybe, but what is his excuse for being the unanimous worst interview at the combine.

did you listen to his interview? did you hear him talk? I ask because you seem to be discounting his stats at UF. His production is there, it shows in the game film if he did not bomb at the combine he would not have been there and would have been a top 20 pick.

This is before the combine

and he had dropped weight to get quickness before the yr started for him.  And even if he was the worst interview in combine history that has little to do with his on field play.  It showed in college it is up to him to make the transition to the NFL and make it show there. Boom or bust pick but because he came from a high level program and produced for 2 yrs I dont think his bust potential is as high as people think.

I am no expert on the prospect.  I acknowledge that he might hit, but the idea that his bust potential isn't that high? C'mon.  I heard an interview with him.  It wasn't horrific, but I am talking about his team interviews.  Teams were telling the press he was awful.  The interviews relate to mental prepartion, coachability and the ability to be a good teammate. It was what Mangini was supposed to be good at.

 I read the draft reports on him.  He was considered an undersized speed/finesse rusher.  If he isn't fast, he isn't going to be particularly good.  It seems pretty likely that he isn't going to be an every down 3-4 OLB since he can't run at the heavier weight.  He didn't produce for 2 years.  He was as much a 1-year wonder as there is.  Why do you think he produced for 2 years?  He was as good in 2016 as 2017. 

Th reason i say his bust potential is not  that high is because of the level of competition he played against and produced, he is not from a small college or conference, when you take that into consideration he is a boom or bust but because of where and whom he played against. you do realize he played 3 yrs at UF and each yr his tackles increased while sacks stayed the same he played in less games. his weakness is pass coverage/run defense. I am not saying he is going to be great or be a bust but when you look at the tools and his body of work I would say what I said. You disagree fine

 

There was a reason a guy that before the combine was considered a top prospect and was there in day two and you are harping on that bad combine and interview I can give a crap about bad interviews look at this list of players that had bad interviews and combine work outs. I hope as every Jet fan should that he falls in with the latter
