Meth Wolfe was an All-American and averaged a sack per game facing the same level of competition, despite having less raw talent.

Look like Tarzan, play like Jane players rarely pan out. Especially in the trenches.
Wolfe has less raw talent? Maybe when it comes to running fast in a straight line or the benchpress. Certainly not in terms of actually playing football.

Generally speaking that's what raw talent is. Talent that has not been realized on a football field. By that definition, Poe has more raw talent t-shirt and shorts talent than Wolfe. That being said, I'm not a big fan of drafting players based on shorts and t-shirt measurements, which is basically why KC drafted Poe, and why he'll most likely wash out in 2 or 3 years.

I think you're confusing measurables and raw talent. Raw talent means a guy has a natural gift for football but lacks the technique and experience to maximize it. Dontari Poe is fast for his size and is very strong, but in terms of raw football talent he doesn't come close to Wolfe. What's funny is a lot of personnel people in the NFL get the two confused as well. That's why guys like Poe get drafted so high even though the film shows they are clearly not that great when actually playing the game rather than working out.

Exactly. Talent is different than athletic ability.

Take golf as an example. There are plenty of athletically gifted individuals who don't have the talent and coordination to play golf at a high level. Conversely, there are fatty mcfattersons who tear it up on the course because they have loads of talent. When you combine athletic ability and talent, then you have something special, like Megatron or Suh.

Yep. Jerry Rice was slow for a wide receiver, but his football talent went through the roof. Meanwhile how many track star super-athletes have come and gone as NFL receivers without accomplishing anything?

Classic over-dramatizing preseason. Always funny to see.

So he's basically starting in a game where most of the actual starters probably won't play, or will play a series or two.

Whoops. . . The only reason he's "starting" a preseason game where most of the starters will be wearing baseball caps, is because of injuries.

Randy Covitz ‏@randycovitz

#Chiefs will start Dontari Poe at NT on Thurs at Green Bay because of ankle injury to Toribio.

Yeah, Powe has played much better than Poe from what I have read. Maybe Powe is great or maybe Poe just sucks.

I bet even Romeo Crennell sometimes gets all confused about what Poe is what Powe. This is also probably why Torbio is the guy, it's just a lot easier for Romeo this way.

No POE is so far from a zero technique it he will be a little factor this year. He was drafted to play NT. Not backup to 2 very expensive and overpaid 5 tech guys.

Or maybe Powe has had a full year to learn the technique and speed of the NFL game?
