All the guys you mentioned were productive college players are major programs to back up their nice measurables. Poe is not.
If it's just where you think people will go instead of where they deserve to go, then I guess theres no point to argue. I just don't see it happening.
You are debating with one of the most accurate guys on this site who is correct more often then not.
And what's that have to do with Dontari Poe? It makes no sense to just follow what OTC and Maddog say. They don't have any tape the rest of us don't have access to. Form your own opinions based on what you see or else your opinion isn't worth a damn.
As for Poe, he's from a small school and he seems to have been pretty inneffective in college...That sounds nothing like Ted Ginn, Tyson Jackson or Vernon Gholston.
-Ginn played on a National CHampionship runner up team. He returned a kick for a td in that game. He was electric as a receiver and as a returner in college. He shouldn't have gone as high as he did but I think he was generally considered a first round talent before the draft.
-Jackson was a beast who didn't have big stats, but that's not what was asked of him in college and that's not his game. He was on a great team and a great defense in the SEC. I hardly think that he compares to Poe.
-Gholston beasted it up in college. He may have been one dimensional or whatever, but he was at a big time school and he produced. I think that's Engleburger's point.
I'll be shocked to see Poe go in the top 10. He does not have the credentials of the aforementioned 3 players.
