But his offense is why he was drafted!
He'll swallow his offensive instincts and focus on not making defensive mistakes. That's what the coaches want from a call-up, that's what he will try to give them.
I'm just a poster like everyone here

Your right in a sense, i'm sure they are telling him to keep his game simple, but at the same time I don't think they are telling him not to try to be creative offensively, don't join the rush, or don't pinch.

Anyway, i was just responding to the other poster who said his defense is what is lacking, which I disagreed with, I actually think he took quite a few big steps since turning pro in that part of his game.
