OK, so you think it's easy to see his athletic traits but not what he's great at on the field...yet. I'm actually comparing Byard coming out of college to Polamalu coming out of college...not Polamalu the HOF S. Byard had zero sacks in college and 1 TFL his last year. Polamalu had 3 sacks and 9 TFL...which is a LOT for a S!!! That is what I mean by a force in the box. Byard can run and chase and bring 'em down, but Polamalu is a player teams scheme to stay away from! I don't see that level of run defender in Byard...nor most S's in the NFL! How would I not understand modern day scheming? BTW, Polamalu was one of the few players LeBeau allowed to 'free lance.' If he smelled a certain play he could move into a position to attack it. That also meant his S partner had to be able to cover for him and know what he was doing. If Polamalu was supposed to be a half field S but smelled run and moved into the box, Clark would move to CF to play a deep cf look instead of just doing his assignment. Polamalu had great film study, instincts and preparation! That's what set him apart from most guys and Byard as well.
