Strong, good hands, good body control and a good head on his shoulders but he lacks the speed that you need at the next level. I think he goes round 3 or later.
I know this is probably an unpopular opinion but I think our line deserves more credit than its getting. Elliott is a great back but almost every back is averaging ridiculous numbers per carry. In my opinion people are overlooking the line and I still need to see more out of Zeke in order to color him a 1st round pick.
If they can get him to use it in the right ways..... that's the big question....... IF
I don't mind a little bit of trash talking and trying to psychologically get in your opponent's head maybe after a big hit or something but I always tell my kids who act this way to practice some humility. I tell them to let their playing doing their talking for them, God forbid they get in a car accident or suffer a career ending injury and they don't have football anymore. A lot of times the kids who mouth off are the kids with bad attitudes as well and I tell them if you're jawing you better be doing everything else right and bring a good attitude day in and out. Its a good thing when it is controlled and with a good attitude, but I think EGW has some work to do in controlling his emotions. I'm sure EGW has a short leash with Urban already because of the fight and EGW will for sure be under a microscope at tOSU.
Its an expression, yes I know proper English thank you very much! :D
Sore about what? The best coach in college football wouldn't be here and we might not have a championship last year. People act like we plummeted after the incident, Tressel was great Pryor was great and those players around him, they ALL made a mistake but why look back? You're one national title richer for it.

Yes Mi*hig*n fans have the constitutional rights to expect to reach 500 (success for them)
This is my order
Love how much Michael Thomas challenges the defense to be better.
Manti Teo's girlfriend finally decided to show up
Its in practice and he will only get better. That's where you learn from your mistakes, he'll be a very good corner, remember who he is going up against daily, definitely going to be some All B1G performers on the receiver squad and I think Thomas and/or Marshall could potentially be All-Americans next year.
Honestly, I'm from Dallas and coach football here in Dallas and was really following Dontre's recruitment when the Buckeyes were recruiting him. I was ecstatic when we got him and when there was a little Marshall vs Dontre competition, I always backed Dontre. I always defended Dontre saying he was faster and quicker and better with the ball in his hands than Marshall but Jalin Marshall has really, really impressed me. He may not be as quick as Dontre but he's got everything it takes to be a great football player and at this point I love em both but I just think Marshall is a plain and simple better football player/H-back/receiver than Dontre is. Dontre has all the potential in the world to be special but I think Curtis Samuel will take the H-back position and run with it. I also do not know if this is true or not, but have heard this from some of my boys, Dontre had a major attitude problem, especially towards his coaches at DeSoto. I will not get into detail of the things they told me because at this point this is heresay but I definitely do see it with Dontre, in my mind I think he took some of that attitude with him to tOSU and Urban benched him so he could learn his lesson and now there are just players that are much better.
Two words: Curtis Samuel
Yessir! Very unfair, its going to be video game type unfair!
This offense will be ridiculous, video-game caliber. Marshall will be a very good pure receiver and Samuel is gonna be the best H-back in the nation. Oh and we also have the best RB in the nation. Oh and some of the best QB's in the nation...I'll just stop there :D
Brionte Dunn and Marcus Baugh could be some of the better players in the nation right now I am really rooting for them to start doing the little things right! Who's the player who laid the stick on Paris Campbell on the jet sweep?
The intensity of these practices is insane. Urban F. Meyer, best coach in the game.
This kid is very, very underrated by most services
That's the beauty of H-back, you can have two or even 3 on the field at the same time. Marshall can line up as a receiver, Dontre can line up in the slot and Samuel can line up in the backfield and you can still do a jet sweep to Marshall or Dontre or throw it to Samuel as a receiver out of the backfield or you can just line them all up in a 4-WR set along with Michael Thomas and EzE in the backfield.
All great players emerge from somewhere...
Its not a personal vendetta, its called a team for a reason, best man starts against both teams and I think that will be JT.
Top Passers In Order: JT, Cardale, Braxton
Best QB (leadership, ability to read a defense and execute): JT, Cardale, Braxton
Most Efficient QB for our offense: JT, Cardale, Braxton
At this point, we need a passer because we hands down know that ANY of the 3 guys can run, Cardale will run you over, JT will run it like a RB, and Braxton will juke you out of your shoes. This is such a hard decision but for me, I think you start JT based on what he did as a freshman and Cardale is a very close second, then again, Cardale's 3rd down efficiency is ridiculous, very, very hard decision but I think the departure of Devin Smith may take away one of Cardale's main weapons and he'll have to throw down the middle much more, where I think JT is better.
