And they have a bonehead for a coach who could get fired any moment.
I liked Nassib; think he has some nice upside. The rest of the picks, not so much. Has trying to be to cute written all over it. The times the Browns draft players from "academic" schools, they are major busts. From "Mad Dog" Junkin to Owen Maricec. They wasted a pick on this Princeton kid. Really pisses me off that they never draft Buckeyes. The Steelers do. Nuff said.
I really can't stand MSU or him, but my gut says he will be successful in the pro's. For some reason, unheralded MSU qb's seem to do well.
Staying in school is overrated, especially when big money is on the line. By big I mean a 6 figure salary. Try earning 6 figures out of OSU with a degree at age 22. People are acting like Jalin can never get a degree. Say he only lasts 3 years in the NFL, he can use his NFL earnings to come back to OSU and finish the degree. In state tuition isn't much.
I guarantee you that Jaylon Smith is regretting he came back to ND. All it took was 1 play to injure him. Jalin didn't like school, and he isn't going to risk getting injured. I'd say it was a smart move on Jalin's part to skip his senior year.
He can always come back to OSU and pay his own way for the final year after his pro career is over.
This undersized WR just has a bust vibe. GM's , and especially CLE GM's, out think themselves and trade down for extra picks. They think everyone will think they are so smart. II feel they should have stayed at 2 and taken Zeke. He is a special back and they would have been set at RB for the next 10 years. You need a "Big 3" of QB, RB, and WR to win.
Alabama is ranked #1 or #2 at worst every year. Doesn't matter who they lose, or who their QB will be. Fair or not?
MSU really is starting to look like a Tressel era OSU team, with slightly less talent. Fortunately for us, OSU is starting to look like a Tressel era UF team.
I trust in Urban. A roster full of Ohio kids would not have beat Alabama. Tressel locked Ohio down and could not beat USC, LSU, and UF.
Sadly as a Browns fan even though its a good trade, I think they will blow it. I would love for them to draft all Buckeyes this draft. These guys know each other and I think they would play hard together as Browns. Bosa at 8 Thomas or Miller at 31.
He better start working on some modifiers for that Block O tat. Maybe have an elephant jumping through it?
Nice! OSU has a legitimate shot at 4 out of 247's top 10 prospects. On Rivals it's 5 out of 10. I don't ever recall USC or Alabama doing something like that. If everything falls in place, this may go down as one of the all time great cfb recruiting classes.
I've noticed Rivals never puts OSU up as a leader for a recruit even when the recruit says it.
I'm hoping for Duke v. Yale in the second round. Would love to hear one side do one of those obnoxious "you'll all be working for us" chants.
I gotta go with Duke to win it all. They are my "2nd" team after OSU.
Was a he a sword or pistol guy?
I'd rather have Love. He can grab boards on D and on O keep teams honest by hitting the outside J allowing LeBron to roam the paint. Kyrie is a liability since he fails at the #1 job of a point guard, which is assists. I'd rather they get an elite defender for him because you can't stop GS without elite defense.
Kyrie can't play defense and is not a good distributor of the ball. Perhaps it is better for the Cavs to trade him and get a pure point guard who can defend.
The Browns have been drafting so badly, they should do something radically different and just draft ALL Buckeyes. I literally mean ALL Buckeyes. Why not? Bosa, Elliott, Braxton for sure. For once, it would put some excitement into the team and fans would actually buy tickets since most Browns fans are also OSU fans.
Of course, they are going to draft a bust at QB (again) and watch their rivals the Steelers and Ratbirds load up on Buckeyes. SIgh....
Rest of college football is going to have to take a backseat on NFL draft day. It's going to be one huge recruiting commercial for Ohio State.
Those were awesome Cavs teams growing up. Only if they had kept Ronnie Harper, perhaps they could've beaten the Bulls. When they made the trade they thought the Pistons were the team to beat so they tried to go big with Ferry. They had the misfortune of being in the East and could not get past the Bulls. If they were in the West they would have made the Finals many times. I also agree that those teams would beat LeBron's best Cavs teams. Lenny Wilkins was a great coach too.
Wish all the recruits were like Myers. If you know you're going to end up somewhere doesn't it make more sense to commit early so you can be a recruiter for your class at all the camps? Yeah, you can have the spotlight on you if you string it out till signing day, but you can make your 3-4 years potentially more enjoyable by getting better talent to play with you.
I never cared for Manning. Always suspected his image was phony. Also, this guy was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, the son of NFL royalty, growing up wealthy.
The article was pretty damning. Manning's lies were discredited when his teammates and fellow students were put under oath. Will be interesting to see where this goes.
Brady took so much heat over the deflated footballs nonsense, yet no one questioned how Manning was able to come back from multiple neck surgeries and play football again?
Michigan fans that I've encountered tend to be civil and respectful of the rivalry for the most part. Then again the Michigan fans I have run into were at grad school, so a higher caliber and not your usual run of the mill Walverine.
