A lot of the best DL are from the south so its always tough to get them to leave the area. However, he has landed elite players like Chase Young, Nick Bosa, and Taron Vincent. With continued success of these players at the college and pro level LJ's ability to extract those elite DL out of the south will improve.
Great article. I don't think the Bucks would have lost a game from '02-'05 had Dru & Mo played together.
Would be interesting to see a study how the Browns would have fared since '99 if they simply drafted the best available OSU player each round.
Hope all this talent translates to playoff wins. The 31-0 loss was the worst loss by far I have seen in my lifetime.
I'm at the point I don't stress if a guy doesn't pick OSU as Urban will find another guy just as good or better.
You don't need "analytics" to know that was a shitty pick.
Figured only moronic franchises such as the Lions or Browns would take Peppers in the first round. Sure enough I was proven correct. Blew taking Hooker at the 12th pick. Been a Browns fan since '83. Am about done with them. Besides, they were not really the Browns since they came back in '99.
Darnay Holmes chose...wrong.

You reasoning is what is used by the in state programs to try to retain all of all of the out of state kids that come to OSU to play football. Can't have it both ways.
Need to draft studs in the early picks. Franchise type players are not available in the late 20's, which is what the Texans pick next year will be. Might go down as the boneheaded draft trade of the decade. Basically traded this years 12 for 25.
Garrett on the phone with his agent "get me the hell out of Cleveland"
Sashi is an idiot for trading again. Passing on Hooker will haunt this team for a decade.
Hooker at 12 and Conley in the 2nd round at 33 would be both steals for the Browns.
Damn shame if Conley drops out of the first round. Would have been nice to have had 3 OSU db's in the first round.
Uproot his family at the age of 65 and move to the west coast? Doubt it. His son and grandkids also live in Columbus.
Man, you gotta wonder what would have happened had Lou taken over for Woody in 1979.
Cool to see Bucks are going after someone from my old high school, Lexington. I don't think OSU ever has taken someone from Lexington.
Whatever happened to the days when a kid knew OSU was the spot for him and committed early so he could rope in other guys to join him? This showboating done by most of these recruits these days is pointless.
OSU basketball is a very good program and is better regarded among bball programs than Kentucky football ever was among football programs.
This would be the best Ohio prospect to not pick OSU since Woodson, who never considered OSU. Still think Meyer closes the deal though. Just can't see a top rated Ohio prospect turning down an OSU offer.
Part of the costs will be borne by tourists as the hotel tax is going up to pay for it. Just got a little bit more expensive to visit Vegas.
Not worried at all about him flipping. Saban is going back to more pro-style this year with his new OC, so their offense would not be a good fit for him.
It is sad when other schools in the state routinely outclass in bball Ohio State, the school that has been to the most final fours in the history of the B1G.
I always think about that quote from "Full Metal Jacket" when I think about TX.
