It’s not that he can’t run, but I’d put him and Sam along the same wavelength in terms of rushing ability. He’s fine, and can make his way out of a pickle, but I don’t really feel the need to spy him all that often just hold contain and you’ll be good
Didn't mean it in that way
I’m more so coming from the perspective of, I talked to scouts and people around the situations… it wouldn’t have helped. It’s easy to think a dominant season would’ve helped.. then you look at Dazz Newsome who had back to back great years, waived yesterday as well. Great college players /= good. Cornell Powell(who went 55-882-7 last year!), Shawn Davis, Dez Fitzpatrick are amongst the guys who were 5th round picks or earlier(Dez went in the fourth I believe), that all got waived yesterday and all played last year. Just getting drafted there isn’t the surest thing regardless of production as Dez himself went 154/2,589 yards/21 over his four years. Wouldn’t have hidden the combine numbers which were… bad is an understatement.
Regardless he’s been signed on the practice squad so he’s not fully out of it yet

From everything I’ve heard both pre and post draft, Sage sitting out has nothing to do with the NFL prospects. He’s not a developmental guy like Scotty(who also stayed his entire time and also got cut)
He’s just.. limited in what he can do at the next level from an NFL standpoint according to scouts. He’s not a burner, and doesn’t really create too much separation with his routes. He’s an excellent big-bodied receiver and has a high catch point, but unless it’s speed, but the limitations athletically that affect his ceiling have been the downfall, not sitting out. The narrative of sitting out has really.. not been a thing. Playing vs not playing most of the knocks on guys who sat out..weren’t really things that would be fixed if they played a year

Easiest answer here is the ability to drop into coverage. That is a major responsibility of the drop end which is why we usually see the recruitment at that position being guys who played DE/TE in high school or are linebackers that grew too much.
Davis is more prolific being an edge setter in the run game, while being a power rusher which is the style needed on the Field End(how Boogie played) while the drop end is much more speed and reaction-oriented. I do think we’ll see a fair amount of 3 man sets with both Rondell and Jasheen to maximize pass rush, especially on 3rd downs.
Kendron is kind of a tweener. Fine in coverage but more of a field end
