    Re: Onobun's Development Underway

    Memo to the New York Jets:

    If you're going to take a flier on a project player with raw physical tools, you should probably look to do so in the sixth round instead of the first.

    Reaching Desperately on the "clay" no bad habits?

    I think Fendi is worth a flyer, but people who are justifying the pick due to 'no bad habits' or can be molded from raw clay are just plain crazy. With that logic you should pick a person with a strong arm who's never played QB (how about just drafting baseball players with 95 an hour fastballs), track stars who are fast and agile (we know how often that works out - the most recent bust is Nehemiah), or big Greco Roman wrestlers who never played football. All of them would have the raw physical skill and "no bad habits".

    Football is a game where intangible and knowledge grown over many years matter. Things like lowering your pads, knowing how to take a hit, how to explode, seeing a hole opening up, not flinching when a strong safety is ready to take your head off.

    I hope Fendi works out, but please stop these 'raw is good' arguments.
