Sarksure.gifI’m going to make a drunken, bold Pumpy prediction that Otton moves to D. Throw him in the mix at Buck/Sam.Just what we need. Another white guy trying to rush the QB. Should we move our slowest offensive line recruit MJ Ale to DT as well?
He probably won’t tho because he’s likely a more willing blocker than Bryant and he will certainly be a better one than Culp will initially be.
Since I hedged my bet, I’ll be right either way.
Otton is the next great white TE for us. Will maul people when he is blocking and be a good safety valve for the QB.I’m not sure if he will be big/strong enough. I would lean towards yes because most kid’s with his football lineage are obsessed.
The question for me with instincts is why are they bad. Are they bad because you just haven't gotten enough reps? Are they bad because you aren't getting good coaching? Or are they bad because you're a mental midget and things just don't click for you?Instincts and football IQ are so fucking underrated in scouting. They can be improved, but for the most part, they are what they are.
If it's either of the first 2, you can overcome them with time in the program and potentially be a contributor at some point. If it's the mental midget side of things, then the odds of it ever clicking is about zero and you're destined to be one of those athletes that lucks into a few plays but always leaves you massively underwhelmed.
In a normal situation, if you're in the UW program, that kind of player will almost always get passed at some point by our typical recruit.
