Braxton will win the starting job again because he's the whole package.  Barrett and Jones are amazing QBs who could start for most NCAAF teams but each has a fatal flaw.  Barrett's fatal flaw is his lack of a consistent deep ball which allows defenses to cheat to try and stop the run.  Jones' flaws are that he is a slow runner in a system that is built around running the QB and makes a lot of unforced errors like the 3 turnovers against Oregon that the defense had to bail us out of.  This is not to say that either Jones or Barrett are bad at all, they're great, but they do have flaws.

By contrast Braxton is the best runner of the group which is a huge advantage in a system built around running the QB.  He has tons of experience behind center which is experience he uses to not make big mistakes.  And let's not forget, Braxton's deep ball is excellent as he's been connecting with Smith for TDs for years.

Ohio State is stupid stacked at QB with 3 great college prospects but I think people have forgotten just how good Braxton is in this system and when the smoke clears they'll be wondering why they ever doubted his return to the starting role.

Don't forget Michael Bennett.  One Cowboys blog did some draft research and found Bennett was the most disruptive DT in college football over the last 2 years, narrowly edging even possible #1 overall pick USC's Leonard Williams.

I have no doubt Bennett is going to rise into the 1st round.

I don't know if Doran Grant is going to be a 1st round pick this year but he absolutely shut down his side of the field against really good wide receivers in a way Bradley Roby just didn't.  Grant might not be as heralded as Roby but I bet he's going to make some NFL team look real smart for drafting him.

Billy price was good but for my money Pat Elfein was the best player on the offensive line last year.  That dude seemed to be just as strong in straight ahead blocking as pulling and blocking in space.

I'm very curious to see what happens with perry next year.  There's a lot of talent at linebacker ready to compete with him but can you sit a guy with that production?

That Darron Lee tat is awesome but it would be even more hardcore if it included "high and tight boo boo"

It just adds to much faith in this coaching staff that they didn't even consider taking the offer of a consensus 5-star recruit in order to get a lower-ranked 4-star recruit.  But this staff had such confidence in their evaluation of EZ-E they knew to go against the grain in a big way to make it happen.  It just gives you so much confidence in what they do.

I thought it was just lazy.  He went for the controversial topics because they are the easiest to hold the audience's attention.  He wasn't trying to do a good interview as much as he was just trying to get through it and hold people's attention.  Just kinda lazy.
