No. Coaching leaf had to do with being a pro, a leader, a good teammate. He had the best arm in the draft, he was also the biggest shit head. He blew off a meeting with the Colts. Bush league behavior.

Leaf WAS a shit head, he even admitted it himself. Sewell doesn't appear to be anywhere near the asshole Leaf was.

Hell of a pro day and has more experience at LT than Jenkins

Sewell is 20 years old. He is essentially a sophomore. How many people were talking about Nelson his sophomore year? No one. The guy’s potential is sky high and is only just starting to realize his potential. That’s why he is the number one rated tackle. Not for who he is this moment, which is still pretty damn good, but for who he can become.

To me, if Teven Jenkins doesn't improve one bit from where he is right now, he's an average-good starting LT in the NFL. Same goes for Slater. Both also possess growth potential that they could be among the best in the league.
How could scouts have said that Griffith would have a similar career to Luck, when they were both drafted the same year?

Neither one had even started their careers yet?
