I always go back to the Big 10 Championship game of a few years ago.  The one where Penn State got in, but missed the playoffs to Ohio State.  When they announced the winner of the MVP for the Archie award, you saw Franklin in the  player's  ear telling him to respect Archie and shake his hand unlike that total d bag from Mich State.  I always give Franklin some props for that.

Very interesting take on him and everyone at the combine on NFL.com.  There is a detailed review on each prospect.  For Gary they note his athletic ability but the knock on him is really on development.  For example:

 * Rush plan is somewhat basic at this stage of development

* Hands lack skill and have yet to be unlocked as rush weapon

 * Runs himself around the pocket rather than working back under

 * Long-arm bull rush is his only real rush tool

Why any top player would want to go to Michigan I cannot understand.  Forgetting about the rivalry, they just DO NOT develop their players relative to OSU or many top schools.  Gary's talent was absolutely wasted at Michigan.

Yep, the arguments for Gary don't logic out for me.  He may test well.  But he was not double teamed more than any Bosa and his production was considerable less.  Listen, sometimes the results speak for themselves.  Often times, people spend too much time and effort trying to explain their way around the hard facts.  He was just meh as a college player.  Perhaps he will be a better pro?

Didn't he have less sacks in his career as Chase did last year?  What makes this guy a top 10 pick?  His combine testing?  Don't results matter - or do the NFL "experts" believe his college career was a 3 year fluke?  Results do matter.  Normally you would expect less production against NFL caliber players then playing against college opponents.

I think he could be a very big bust

Those Winter or Spring times can be very exaggerated.  We do the same.  Bottom line, I think Zeke ran a 4.47 or something like that.  Absolutely no way in the universe Murray has the same track speed as Zeke.  No laser timed and when the pressure is on.  The only thing he has going for him at the 40 is he is small, like 5'9" small and tiny guys usually are quicker.  Basically, it looks like they are faster than they really are.
