He was overhyped big time coming out of HS.

He’s got one good move - the bull rush.

That’s it.

He’s also incredibly soft and mentally weak.

It’s do or die this year for him.
Tf are you hating on this kid like that for? No he wasn’t overrated, he had the most dominant senior season of any dt in the country that year with over 12 sacks 30 tackles for loss dominanted elite competition at the opening and army all American game.

Saying he’s incredibly soft and mentally weak based on what exactly? Fans love to sit down in their high horses and tear down our players

dude leaves a lot to be desired on the field imo..

Hopefully he turns it up a few notches this yr now that he is fully healthy

DT's need to step up
He flashed like all of our dts did at times, have to remember he was coming off knee and foot injury and probably wasn’t necessarily all the way ready. Let’s see what he does when he’s fully healthy. Statistically some of the dts #s were hurt on pass rushing downs due to us imploying greg as the only interior dlineman for majority of games in those situations compared to what we did in the past of having a traditional 4-3 or 4-2-5 alignment on those downs. Sh*t look at jon ford #s he had 3 sacks and 3 tfls the entire season even though he started every game. All the dts #s were down this season for whatever reason and the 2 young guys Silvera and miller didn’t play all that many snaps to begin with last season(not anywhere near the reps ford or bethel got). Their production should increase this year with increased reps.

Woah, settle down babe.

The reservations for later are binding.

We’re getting steak whether you want to or not.

It’s what fans do. He’s still got two years to make an impact. I haven’t written him off totally yet
This is why you have to evaluate on your own. Nesta won with power and effort in HS. He projected as a nose who could push the pocket and make plays in pursuit. He was never the quick, agile penetrating 3-tech type. I don't care what his stats were against HS kids or how many stars 247 gave him.

Don't even get me started on five star Lingawd and these fans...

He played with good power and leverage and also could play two gap very well for a high school kid. But yes, he wasn’t exploding past blockers and chasing down running backs in the backfield. He’s a very good nose/1 tech.
