Quinn's potential was to be a top 3 pick, IF he had a strong junior year. Well he didn't play his junior year so how can he be thought of in the same light as if he did? The argument that Quinn would have been a top 3 pick if he came out last year is not valid because the top 3 grade was given expecting him to impress in his junior year. He imo has bust written all over him because he simply hasn't produced against strong competition consistently. Not that he wont be good, just not worth the risk. We should target someone like Prince, a solid player who has proven himself against good competition
Let me get this straight...you don't want to give him credit for a season he couldn't play but you want to judge him and knock him down for the same reason?
And he's not being graded on possibly having a big season this past year. He's being graded based on what he's shown so far in his career.
Demarcus Ware didn't put up huge numbers against top teams either playing at Troy. If you can play, you can play. His pass rush abilities are clear as day experience and NFL coaching will only make him better.
Prince won't do much when the other teams QB has all day to throw the ball.
Going from team statistics from the NFL's website, the rankings of the Cowboy's and Niners defense are very similar:
Cowboys had 35 sacks, 9'ers had 36.
Cowboys pass defense ranked 26th and gave up 243.4 yards per game.
9'ers pass defense ranked 24th and gave up 231.1 yards per game.
Doesn't support the notion that a "stud" pass rusher (Ware) made much of a difference as far as statistics go.
I think that a good pass rush and good coverage go hand-in-hand. Just having one or the other, and you will get burned.
