You're right, though - his technique needs work. That said, again, he's 20. With his hands being as quick as they are, there's no reason at all he couldn't have outstanding pass-rush moves.
I just don't see what you're seeing here, I guess. Floyd's first step is absolutely elite. The rest of it is just a technique issue that comes from being a young kid.
I can understand the discussion of age and I appreciate the upside. Reminds me a bit of the analysis of Amobi Okoye, but in that regard only.
Richardson, when he gave a ****, was a dynamic force on the field. At times, easily the best player on the field, while playing against the best competition.
I simply think it's a stretch to take a DL with "upside" at 1.1, especially given what he'll need to refine.
Again, not trying to kill this player, as I think he's a good one.
