Over the last 3 years, our overall strategy was to take players with upside/tremendous physical tools and coach them up to success with the whole competition, swagger, etc.
So even though a bunch of people on here did not like the Michael pick, they were still able to digest it. The guy owned the combine.
But... from the shadows and depths of the dark and unruly Penn state... comes an "effort" guy.
We've been conditioned to fear anything that looks or smells like a Ruskell pick. And for good reason.
But that's the idea of conditioning.
It's subconscious. We've learned to trust PC & JS. But sometimes our body becomes aversive to what had made us sick, and from where we stand, this guy is not a high upside/tremendous-physical-tools guy.
And another thing.
Somehow, with Hill, we are trying to imagine him as a physical freak because he was drafted by our own GM, but it's just not working. Cognitive dissonance (thinking of two opposing things at once) is uncomfortable.
And yes. I'm a psych major. And I'm bored. Let's go back to drafting some more big nasties on day 3.
