I admit it, I bought in hook, line and sinker....if it was a troll attempt.  Personally I think ol boy is just losing it, but that's just my humble opinion...

Now anyone looking at this that knows anything about the NFL Draft and what teams are best represented usually can see the most glaring omission on this list.  I basically replied "are you purposely leaving out players from tOSU?"  Then I got bored and decided to see how many we've actually had.  Anyone have a guess without looking on the interwebs as to how many we've had?

Looked it up during the draft. 

Oh, yeah.  I vote "troll who's losing it".

You are not crazy, just did a quick search online and we would be third on that list with 54 by my count. Gil Brandt has always seemed like a bit of a troll to me, wouldn't waste any time worrying about him though.

edit: i may very well have been two off in my quick count... Tied for second go bucks!

edit of my first edit: I was two off because we had two drafted in the first round this year that weren't on the page i read, oops!

We had 54 going into this year's draft.  Plus RDS and Roby.

I think it was an honest mistake, he tweeted this shortly after:

Schefter is a Michigan grad and huge fan of the Wolverines. That would be like Albert Breer retweeting something to make Michigan look good.

Not saying you're wrong Woody, but "oops, I missed No. 2"??? 

OK, leaning more toward "losing it".

Gil has taken one too many "Late Hits."

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

He doesn't seem to be a fan of Ohio State, and he says some stupid things. He's getting senile and needs to hang it up.

Disagree...listened to him on XM during the draft, and he seemed to be very OSU-friendly.

He's a clown. He's the same guy that said Carlos Hyde wouldn't stack up in the SEC, or something along those lines. I think he also said he thought Baylor had better athletes than OSU last year.

Honest mistake or "oooops sorry .............. mistake?"

Double check the facts before you print something for the world to see

Loved him as one of the holy trinity of Landry's Cowboys, but my vote for this tweet: Troll.
