Like Sanchez, Gholston was a top pick and had a glowing scouting report coming out of college. My point was that some players will struggle to carry over to the pros and are destined to be busts regardless of coaching.
I thought even a simpleton who pretends to be a cartoon character on a sports website could figure out the link between the two. My bad!!!!!!!!!
Neither was Gholston. Of course there is absolutely no possibility at all the draft experts were wrong on Sanchez and Gholston right? Sanchez surely would have become a great franchise QB if it wasn't for coaching. Draft experts are always 100% right with their assessments of 21 and 22 year old college players
Sure the coaching staff can take some blame for not developing Gholston. But there's no way to even compare the two situations.
The way Sanchez has been handled and misused in his four years here would be like the Jets putting Gholston at safety and wondering why he wasn't producing double digit sacks. Gholston was in a defensive system that allowed him to do what he does best rush the QB , Sanchez was never in an offense that was suited to allowing any QB to succeed.
