Re: TGII, I think you're overstating his lack of elusiveness. Compared to his sprinting speed, his elusiveness may have looked pedestrian but he faked some guys out of their shoes during his time here. I remember specifically a play against the other OSU in a bowl game where he juked a few guys and sprinted all the way back across the field for a big play.

He could have played better against Wisconsin. Obviously we won the game so it's a moot point (i.e. the defensive game plan worked albeit having given up some big pass plays). In the NFL, a shut down corner is going to be expected to shut down the other teams best receiver, especially if that receiver is especially good. I think Abbrederis could be a serviceable NFL receiver so Roby having to cover him with little help over the top was good experience for him. Should we cut him some slack because he's not often asked to do that? Perhaps. But I don't think it's unfair to say he made some mistakes in that game.

What impressed me most in the GIF's above was Roby's closing speed. He was significantly faster than any of the guys (NW or tOSU) running the field on that play.

That's what I got out of watching that GIF as well. WOW. What speed. When they say that Roby is probably the fastest on the team, it's no surprise after seeing that. I think that will stand out to scouts watching film on him. You can teach him up on technique but you can't teach that closing speed.

Wow, OSU still ranked 7 in the compiled poll. What a load of crap and what a worthless poll.
