I don't necessarily think that is the case. Jared is very good, and puts a lot into the draft process. But, his problem is that he thinks he is perfect and his ish don't stink. He forms a quick opinion of a player and will not come off of it. He throws a ton of stuff against the wall hoping it sticks, and will later recall and retweet his old tweets to show he was right (of course you are going to be right a lot when you comment on literally every player at one point or another). He will never admit when he is wrong and if anyone tries to challenge him he will block them.
His thing with Obi is IMO...he watched a game or two and did not like him. Instantly wrote him off and didn't look at all of the tape he could have. He will stick by that until the end....unless Seattle drafts him he will find a way to spin his negativity toward Obi as a positivity.
My opinion on Obi is this. He is an athletic freak, that is obvious from the testing. His tape is inconsistent. He has games where he doesn't tackle well, looks lost in coverage. And then I throw on the Virginia game and he pops all over the screen. Hitting guys on seam routes, coming up making plays in the run game, manning up in the slot and winning. So, the potential to what he can be has been shown on tape from him. It is just inconsistent right now.
