But let's not pretend that he was some sort of wonderful guy who got unfairly judged during the draft process. He brought that upon himself.
Listen Im not killing the Jets for not taking him, I wanted him because I saw that he bought an intensity to the field the jets were lacking on top of him being a decent prospect. But to say he didn't produce on the field his Junior year is ludacris. Was it what most people were expecting? No because they set the bar high for this kid, but he still performed fairly well, including going from no sacks to 5 total on an ASU team that quite franly wasnt that good.
Won't get into the combine because thats just opening pandoras box and I know we all agree that the combine isnt indicative of how all players will perform.
