1. Who are some past prospects that were just bad fits for their teams systems.

2. Who were past prospects that would have likely flourished in present day systems in the NFL.

Ex. Andre Woolfolk I believe would have succeeded in the Seahawks system if he was a prospect in recent drafts at Cornerback. He had all the measurables.

6' 2 197 4.47 40, 6.78 3 cone, 3.96 20 yard shuttle

Peter Warrick would have done quite well as a slot WR in today's NFL.

I know one thing for sure. Cam Newton and his whining sure as hell wouldn't have fit in well with any team back in the days of - Butkus and Jack Lambert and what they got away with doing to QB's.

Maybe Johnny Manziel, sent to New Orleans or Denver I think would have been good spots for him if he was drafted there.

Glen Dorsey was the #5 pick in 2008. As a rookie he was the best player on a defense owning Derrick Johnson. They switched from 4-3 to 3-4 and he was out of place as a DE.

I really think the Dolphins ruined Dion Jordan something fierce.

Put him in a scheme where he wasn't expected to bulk up to play on the line, and let him be a wing defender and he probably would have been a star.

At the time there was some talk that Miami envisioned Jordan as a "Aaron Hernandez stopper" that was subsequently rendered unnecessary by the legal system and thus they had no idea what to do with him.

If memory serves me right Dorsey was actually pretty disappointing his rookie year. Disagree that he was better thaan Derrick Johnson, and even Tamba Hali. I'd go as far to say that he was the 5th best player from the Chiefs draft class that year behind Charles, Flowers, Albert, and Carr

I totally agree with this. It was a bad fit and Dion made it worse. I'm afraid the Seahawks will turn him into something.

Some Oregon fan you are Laughing I think he has potential in our scheme as a cover SLB who could rush on occasion

It slows down scrolling and it's a pain. A lot of people will be posting here and checking threads, it's a huge lag, especially people on phones.
