No offense but your opinion holds 0 weight compared to nationally known writers and guys who have been doing this on the zone for years and who are accurate the vast majority of the time. Until you post a mock or a big board to show your knowledge I suggest you stop throwing stones on others work. I have watched Poe, I watch a lot of ball and pay a lot of attention to the draft. Teams fell in love with Locker, Gabbert, and Ponder who had no business being high first rounders last year but guess what...it takes one team.
Post a mock so we can bask in the brilliance of your opinion.
Locker, Gabbert, and Ponder were all productive players in major conferences. You just don't get it.
Every player looking to get drafted in the first 3 rounds was productive to a certain extent. Was Locker productive, sure..was Poe productive, yes he was. Its the point of over drafting because some teams needs or falls in love with a certain guy. Was Poe productive enough to be a top 10 pick, no he was not, but other variables go into draft picks and as I stated earlier those variables can be enough to push him to be over-drafted. I do not think he is worth the pick, but I am not a GM who could use his athleticism and thinks my DL coach could correct issues with him. You don't get the point that it happens a lot and numerous people are starting to project him high based on those points. Should Gabbert of been a high pick...nope, should Brady of been a very low pick...nope. Some GM's over draft, under draft, and hit bulls eyes and looking at college production as the only variable is short sighted.
I don't see Hill being a first round pick right now but a lot of people do, his college numbers were decent but his combine measurables were through the roof. Its the same philosophy just different players. You may see Poe as a crappy player, that's great but a GM might hold a different opinion on the kid.
