Getting fired caused Angelo to lose his mind...
Am I taking crazy pills?!?!?!
This dude literally made almost every draft pick based solely on speed and athleticism... with the expectation that the rest could be taught by the coaching staff... I don't even feel like listing all the Airese Curry type picks that are flying through my mind right now.
Former Bears GM Jerry Angelo believes the two most "intoxicating and overrated trait(s) that teams use to justify their draft picks is speed and/or athletic ability."
Angelo believes "speed and raw talent are the real separators between the average and above players," so teams generally fall for players with that natural athleticism. However, Angelo goes on to write that "there are much better ways to evaluate a football player than on just speed or athleticism." This is great advice to keep in mind with the Combine approaching.
Just in case you think I just made this up and need proof that it is actually real... here is the link:
