OLB Koa Misi – Second round (40th overall)

Misi’s versatility makes him (on paper) the ideal complement to Cameron Wake, who appears to be the team’s new pass rushing specialist. But considering most NFL insiders say it generally takes two years to learn all the aspects of being a hybrid linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, Misi might have a ways to go before his knowledge base catches up to Charlie Anderson, who has been working in this system for two seasons, and at times flashed when given opportunity. But considering Anderson is a free agent next offseason the Trifecta would rather invest in Misi than Anderson if their contribution level is even close to even during training camp and the exhibition season.

On the subject of your post you left out it "generally" takes 2 years. Not for everyone it does. Some players either learn fast or some just can't even adjust to the NFL period. According to experts some WR's "generally" take 3 years to adjust to the NFL. Tell that to DeSean Jackson, Percy Harvin, Davone Bess, Larry Fitz, Santonio Holmes, Andre Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Marques Colston, Anquan Boldin, Eddie Royal, Michael Clayton, Roy Williams, Lee Evans, the list goes on...

Jason Taylor and Matt Roth transitioned fast if you ask me. Hell look at Orakpo and Dumervil.

I don't buy into the 2 year thing. Depends on the people involved. With the right people a transition can be fast and painless.

I think if you have a quality D coord, he makes the adjustments to help each player become better, in an average system it may take 2 - 3, in a good system you could see it happen in 1...

I think Nolan knows a bit about running a good defense.. He has done it a few times..

Koa Misi sounds like he is going to be a good player in our system in the near future, but I'm not selling Charlie Anderson short just yet. I think Anderson has a great chance at playing the majority of the snaps across from Wake this year. Last year both he and Wake were very productive in the little time they did get. I'm going to wait and see how things shake out in camp.

I would also add that Misi played (lb) in as well as being a (de), so I don't think it will take him that long. While the guy we drafted form Midd Tenn just played (de) so it might take him a little bit longer than Misi.

I'd say several years is fairly accurate ... for a great rookie to become a great player ... or good to good.

Depends on the target outcome you're looking for.
They may play & even do well the first year or two ... but I think they're talking about playing at a level to influence the game.

Article is talking about knowledge base catching up to the vets........I agree that it may take a few seasons for any college player to get the nuances of their position in the NFL whether going from OT in college to OT in pros, or DE in college to OLB in pros.

The question most fans have is while the player is learning those nuances, can they produce on the field......I hope that the rookies that were brought in will be able to do so......and that the coaching staff puts them in a position to have success! :runwiththeball:
