To me, Dobbins is the real deal. His highlight video is incredible and lets not forget his video was from his junior season. (KJ got hurt on the first snap of his senior season)
This kid looks so much like Barry Sanders and I can't wait to see him in the backfield at OSU.
Ya, I think Kyle's pretty good.
Sheez, not 1 point scored against him.
This years defense is going to be fun to watch. It might be the best defense we've seen in Meyers tenure and could be as good as we've ever seen.
DL - Incredible
(Maybe best ever, for sure deepest ever)
LB - Very solid
CB - Unproven, but talented and let's not forget Kerry turns out 1st round picks year in year out
(Young, but extremely talented depth)
S - On the fence with Webb, but Smith and Fuller might be the real deal
(Depth is a concern, but a lot of young talent is lurking)
I expect a great deal of the defense to land in the NFL in the next draft because it's stacked.

Okay, so the two units that aren't up to par right now are either the RB's, WR's or O-Linemen. If I had to bet my life on which two it would be the wide receivers and the offensive linemen. I hope Smith and Stud can get these two very important units playing at a championship level or winning titles this year won't happen.
I think our RB room will shine, so I can't see them being one of the two.
FINALLY A 5* DEFENSIVE TACKLE....
So a 300 pound DT (Rashod Gary) is faster than any RB/FB on ttun team?
Now that's funny or scary depending on how you look at it.
It's 5:45 on Saturday and michigan still sucks!
You heard it here first...Gill will a Heisman Trophy RB at The Ohio State University. Kid reminds me of a young Marcus Allen. Tall, fast and elusive.
I am going with Smith and Fuller at the two safety spots (Sorry Damon) and Sheffield and Okudah at the two corners. Ward and Webb at nickle.
Come November, this secondary will be bruttle to pass against, especially with the pressure our defensive line is going to put on opposing quarterbacks
Phi - I very much respect your feelings and I would love to see Webb drastically improve in year 4, but teams picked him and Ward apart all year.
It would not surprise me to see both Wade and Okudah start at corner by end of fall camp. I like Ward, but these two are on a different level. I could aee Ward sliding into the nickel. I am also hoping someone out performs Webb at safety. I minds eye Webb just never lived up to his top 50 tanking coming out of high school. Would love to see a healthy Smith compete.
I assume Barrett has locked down tge starting job over Burrow and Haskins, but I know this Martell kid is a flat out baller. I truly believe he gives Barrett a run for his money and either Burrow or Haskins, or both, looks elsewhere after the 1017 season. Yes, I think Tate fits Urbans offense to a T.
I really want to see another DT in the class, but I think your 3 picks to OSU come to fruition.
I think Ellison could be a sleep superstar in the waiting.
I'd be thrilled if Wilson committed. I think we have a better shot at Wilson than we do for Tufele.
Wilson - 40%
Tufele - 33%
Our two deep on the oline is solid, plus having 2 5* coming in only adds to the depth. Give me a DT and Ellis and I am good. I think Ellis could be the between the tackles RB OSU needs come November games.
This one's a laugher. Who would pick Nebraska a Mike Riley over The Ohio State and Urban Meyer?
I guess there's one guy out there that thinks it's a wise choice. Gooooood luck with that one.
Something about Ellis makes me want him in the class. I think he could be a bruiser in November games and he's SO hungry for an OSU offer.
Did Hill declare for the NFL draft?
305buck never disappoints.
I am one who believes Mr. Wilson joins the two in Columbus. What defensive tackle would want Okudah and Browning playing behind them.
I am right there with.
Jeffrey Okudah is my favorite player.
I am crying like a baby. What a great, heart felt letter. Wow, just wow. What an incredible young man.
Welcome to The Buckeye Family Jeffrey!
Lets hope his nephew is a stud in 10 years because he's all Buckeye.
It would not surprise me a bit if Tate cracks the starting lineup early at tOSU.
He did not looked thrilled to be a Trojan. I wonder if the Buckeyes just didn't have room. Something tells me he wanted to be a Buckeye.
I lived in Southern Cal for 35 years and USC's campus is a shit whole, however, Westwood in gorgeous. Lord I hope we land Darnay.
