PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Which one would you take if it cam to OSU?
Both ELITE athletes, but given that tOSU is looking to add an offensive playmaker, I'd give a slight edge to Diggs. Diggs is a little bigger and I think projects as more of a natural at the WR spot.
If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target
i agree, both elite. the nod goes to Diggs... the more explosive player.
Capn, Make It So...
I'd rather have Neal. Could be completely unwarranted, but I get perception from Diggs that he is too much about himself and eerily reminds me of TP.
Neal by a considerable margin for me.
October 20th: National Kenneth Guiton Day
At this point I'd take either one. They both are fast fit that percy harvin type threat in the spread. Meyer will mold either one of them and use them appropriately. Lets just get one of them. Go Bucks!
The one I want is Neal. It goes against everything, but the first time I saw him on tape. I immediately thought of DeSean Jackson. I know most people think D Jax is an arrogant S.O.B. but the truth is the dude can flat out play.
Diggs to visit OSU this weekend, per Mike Farrell of Rivals
With Diggs visiting OSU this weekend, the question must be asked. How nuts would that be if we got both? I know, very unlikely, but still.
Dude, that would be totally insane to get both Neal and Diggs. I can see Rainey and Harvin right there. They would both probably play immediately. That would be soooooo awesome. Imagine Urbans closing commits:
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog
If we got both that would be ridiculous Brady Joke would have his tail btw his legs
Braxton throwing to Diggs and NEEEAAAL!!!? That would be like Perct Harvin and Ginn playing with a slightly more athletic Troy Smith........*drools*. MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
That would be awesome. With those two guys on the field at the same time, we would be in a postion to throw, but it would also open up the running game and keep the defense honest. I'm not getting my hopes up, but in all seriousness that isnt out of the realm of possibility... Its just a long shot!
I would personally line up Neal at CB but I think Urban wants him at slot WR
Sounds like Neal wants to play offense, as well. If we can get Reeves and Cox, Neal can play wherever the hell he wants. I imagine he would be our primary return man, as well.
Neal's first 5 to 10 yard burst and juking/quickness look WAY better than Diggs's, based on the film I've seen. Plus, it seems like he has pretty nice, soft hands. Check this out (from three years ago!):
Diggs 40-time is apparently about the same (mid-high 4.4s), so he's clearly fast, and he's taller and built a little bigger than Neal, but Neal looks more dangerous as an all-around speedy slasher to me, while Diggs looks better as an outside receiver prospect.
Btw, does Neal remind anyone else (as a player) of a young Santonio Holmes?
But which has better hands now?
