I don't have a twitter account or anything, but the little that I've seen from Zach Smith on there makes me cringe... 

Comment 16 Mar 2016

I remember that story a few months back where Meyer basically talked about the concern they had for Zeke this offseason and how they really had to keep an eye on him. Big time partier / social guy, and I can see that. Think Meyer even said he was "too social". 

Doesnt really surprise me with either guy, because I know their partying as been discussed before, but I doubt it will be much of an issue. Could be though down the line. 

Comment 11 Mar 2016

I'm not too surprised. Thought he would run somewhere around a 4.6 at the combine had he ran, and this 4.5 on OSU's extremely fast track confirms it. Bell is a really good safety, but I remember watching his offensive highlights from HS and I didn't see blazing straight line speed. That's a good time for him.

Comment 11 Mar 2016

It's seen as a red flag not to run at all. Teams don't want to feel like a guy is trying to hide something. I don't think anyone's ever skipped running altogether (combine yes, but both combine and pro day? No). 

Comment 11 Mar 2016

Most scouts agree. 10 yard splits are really what they're looking at, and generally a fast 40 yard time is going to have a fast 10-yard split. I don't think they put as much stock into OL/DL 40 times as people think, but if a 300 lb man runs a 4.71 40? That shows freakish ability. 

Comment 04 Mar 2016

I think by the time the season rolls around...

Samuel will stick at H-back, with Wilson and McCall providing depth. While I'd personally like to see Curtis at RB, I'm hearing it would be a surprise to see him back there this season and the staff likes him best at H. 

The outside WR rotation will be Brown, Smith, and Campbell primarily, with some Hill and Gibson sprinkled in there. Don't know if Mack sees much PT this year. McLaurin, Stump, Dixon and Clark don't see many receptions for yet another year. Victor redshirts.  

I know they like to have a rotation, but you're talking about 14 players fighting for 3 spots essentially; the majority won't make much of an impact. 

Comment 02 Mar 2016

If he's already graduated, and he's been a starter for 3 seasons, and his stock will never be any higher, and guys almost as good / equally as good are waiting in the wings and being blocked by him, plus with the big numbers problem they have next season (a lot of people need to go)... I guess I could see them suggesting it, or "asking" him to do it. Not because he's a bad player, but only because of the situation. 

Comment 02 Mar 2016

I definitely felt like taking the 5 TE's these past two classes was odd, especially since they've generally been an afterthought in this offense. It's not like they're going to stop recruiting these highly sought after WR's and H-backs either, so I'll believe they'll be an integral part of the offense when I see it. And yes, I know that Berry could potentially play end, and Hawkins / Alexander could play a big, Evan Engram type WR role, but for all of them their best position is TE. Didn't really understand the need for 5 there. 

Comment 02 Mar 2016

McMillan - He gone.
Conley - almost assuredly gone. 
Lewis, Samuel - there's a good chance. 
Price - slightly lesser chance, but if he graduates I think there's a chance he'll be asked or convinced to "leave" due to the number crunch. Not sure how much of an NFL prospect he is at the moment. 
Complete wildcards if they blow up - Hubbard, Booker, Pridgeon, Hooker, Worley. I mean... who saw all of Powell / Marshall / Apple leaving?
Staying - Barrett

I think at the end of the day the only near locks are McMillan and Conley. Everyone else is a wildcard. Samuel if he's finally utilized will probably be gone. I'd have to assume they're going to be pushing some of these guys to leave early. 

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Which is fine with me, we just need to by realistic, and not bash other programs for doing the same. 

That's the thing. There needs to not be a "holier than thou" attitude from Buckeye fans when it comes to this kind of stuff. They will have to "cut" players after this season and it's happened before; you'd be hard pressed to find many schools that don't. It is what it is. 

Comment 29 Feb 2016

My initial guess pre-combine was 4.63 for Powell, so this makes more sense. Wonder what the official will be.

I remember when Taylor Mays ran a ridiculous 4.24 40 at 230 lbs at the combine, which was then later changed officially to 4.43. Showed him with the simulcast beating out dudes that had run 4.3's and what not (I think they finally settled on 4.31 for him and most teams had him in that range), so basically... take these times with a grain of salt.  

Comment 29 Feb 2016

Excellent time by Powell; happy for the guy and I hope he goes earlier than expected. 

Tyvis Powell faster than Braxton Miller... who woulda thought. 

Comment 29 Feb 2016

Ahhh, the ol' convenient "pulled hamstring" right before having to run the 40 *wink wink*...

Hopefully he runs well at his pro day. 

Comment 29 Feb 2016

I've seen that posted in places, but where is the official word on that? I was also looking for confirmation. It's not often that the official time is faster than both of the NFL Network hand times, but I know it's happened before.
