Connor Hughes in his Saturday and Monday podcasts talked about why JJ dropped. Hughes talked with another team and asked them why they passed on JJ. They liked him as a person but said two reasons. One level of competition in the ACC was poor and second was his sacks to pressure rate was out of line. While he got sacks he did not get many pressures and hurries and they said in his Saturday podcast that pressures and hurries are valued greater than sacks as they are more repeatable.
