    Re: Kamalei Correa , 1 snap.



    I never understood why they tried to make this transition anyway. He was an edge guy/pass rusher in college. Not sure how they thought that translated to ILB in the NFL. He never looked comfortable there from the start, hopefully the staff has realized that (finally) and will now use him more outside, where he may be more productive. I didn't think he was terrible but Onwuasor always appeared to be far more natural and better overall than Correa.

    I still don't believe they projected him at ILB. They say that now but I don't think they believe he can play the edge. Just too overmatched and it was painfully obvious. Obviously, I am guessing. But so is everyone else who's guessing that the plan all along was to convert him to ILB.

    Whether the coaches [Pees] gave him enough of a chance is an open question, but it was obvious they quickly soured on him playing OLB. This was reinforced when the drafted Tim Williams and Tyus Bowswer in '17.

    Where is the evidence that he could be a good pass rusher in the NFL?
    They gave him a run outside and he showed nothing to date. They moved him inside to try and salvage something.

    What a disappointment. And I'm not surprised. I never, never liked that pick with what was left on the board.

    Meanwhile, Myles Jack is starting to blossom, Michael Thomas is on pace for a 100 catch season and to be fair another guy I really wanted, Noah Spence hasn't been able to stay healthy, but has played well when he has.

    I will always think the staff tried to out think themselves with that pick.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    My take is the scouts projected him poorly and he's just not athletic enough to play on the edge in the NFL.
    Hard to say. He's quick and he's well-built at 6'3" 245-250lbs.

    I just dont know why they wouldn't give him snaps at EDGE or Rush.

    When did they give him a run? Lol

    They started converting him during training camp. Giving him a few weeks is not enough time to truly tell in a guys rookie year.

    Thats all he did at Boise dont take my word for it go watch his games. I seen plenty of Correa being in this area in the WAC. Correa plays one speed, downhill, hes not a read and react guy, hes not a guy who has good lateral movement, hes not going to out Jump someone. Hes a pass rusher and an edge player. I liked the pick because I thought he was going to be a pass rusher and when they decided to move him I told everyone he was struggle and look now? They never even tried him at his natural position they moved him inside from day one. They clearly misuse him and the scouts clearly mid-judged him. The problem with Correa at OLB is that he cant shed his blocks. Same problem he has as an ILB.

    I will say Ozzies eye for evaluating WRs is as bad as mine. He should really hire BPR
