    Seems a tad risky IMO...

    Lack of production relative to physical talent = ???

    I guess he says it was "scheme" that held him back.

    Now, Gary is a possibility. His lack of production apparently had a lot to do with a shoulder injury, but his talent is unquestionable. I think he goes before #13, but he could be there.

    And his explanation for the production gap?


    “I love my coaches at Michigan,” Gary told the NFL Network, “but it wasn’t the right scheme for me.

    I see a bit of an issue there since I imagine he would be used the same way here as a 3-4 end who moves inside on passing downs. Perhaps in a few years with great coaching he could become that.

    I do agree with him though that with his lack of high level instincts and pass rush repertoire that he should be a 3T in a 4-3.

    Our offseason additions do not point to anything but a 3-4.

    I am a little worry about him too. Were the coaches so dumb that they told their best players to do things to set the other guys up? Normally you want your best player to go make plays.

    Usually when I see a story like this I assume that it means Miami will be taking ANYONE but Rashan Gary.

    Yeah, I'd probably pass. Harbaugh is a smart coach who has found the right way to use the talent on his teams. Heck, he got SF to a super bowl with Kaepernick at quarterback. But, he's more of an offensive guy.

    With the talent Gary has, he should have dominated. Flores could be the type to get that out of him, but it does seem like a gamble.

    I could easily see miami pairing a poa player like this with a rush lb in the 3rd round.

    Almost expecting it.

    What he have a 1.63 10 yard at 277 lbs? That’s rediculous

    I think the production is probably less concerning to me than lacks vision on tbe football at times.

    I'm glad they are evaluating the position but I'm not impressed with Gary's film. Some scouts look too much into combine numbers and measurements but forget a basic quality, can he play football? Does he actually produce? Other than his size and speed etc. is he special? Nothing jumps out to me about this guy so is he worth the 13th pick? I think we should try to trade down if he's the best player available.

    The lack of vision is probably why he wasn't very productive. The combine numbers are great but unfortunately we draft players to produce on the field and not compete in combine Olympics.

    That’s an interesting quote I’m gonna go back and take another look and see if I see evidence of that on tape. If he gets by Detroit at 8 there’s a strong possibility he sees pick 13 way I see it. Cinci at 11 probably wants to give it’s youth a chance.

    He might have after Ed Oliver the 2nd best short area redirect quickness in tbe class. You can definitely see some of those test scores translate on his highlights at least.

    And he thumps. Got some pop to him. Goes thru tight ends like a hot knife thru butter. Blows em up.
