To be fair to Jackson, he seems to be alright with trading away the #12 pick at this point: "He was a little upset at the trade down from 12 at first, but now sees the wisdom in it. The Browns have two first-rounders in 2018 and three second-rounders. If Kizer doesn’t flash franchise potential, they have plenty of ammo to get their man, one way or the other.
“Having that extra pick, that might turn out to be huge for us," Jackson said. "I'm starting to appreciate how nice it is to be in that position, because it gives you options.""

I think this is just the case of our staff slow playing him since he's an in-state kid and they don't exactly know what position he will play. They're after higher rated guys at OT/DT/TE at the moment so they aren't really prioritizing him at the moment

My favorite part of the game was Boston fans booing him the moment he touched the ball. By the end of the 2nd quarter they sure were a lot more quiet, but I guess that's what happens when you wake up a beast 

Comment 10 Mar 2017

Man I like most of the moves the Browns made this year, but why couldn't they lock up TP? We signed Britt for the same amount of money per year, but in Terrelle's first year at WR he had a more productive year than Britt has ever had. I mean come on, how do you let him walk unless he really didn't want to stay?

Comment 06 Mar 2017

I was the same way, on his highlight tape he was flying. Ran something like a 10.4 100 in highschool

Comment 05 Mar 2017

Ehhh, there's a difference between being scared to perform and playing to your strengths. Nobody is expecting him to be a burner. At least if he has a good pro day he can sneak into the mid to later rounds of the draft. You run a bad 40 as a fringe player and you're probably finding yourself undrafted

Tried to negate those downvotes with an upvote, but I personally don't find it ignorant nor do I think it's kids not doing their research. I would say somewhere between 60-70% of the kids we're recruiting didn't grow up as OSU die hards or really fans at all, I wouldn't expect them to understand all of the nuances of being a fan. It would be one thing if they botched up the Ohio State part, but they are simply confusing the order of the word University. No need to be on a high horse, sure it's a bit frustrating but hardly something to be legitimately upset about.

Thanks again for the constant recruiting updates Andrew! Those are some interesting rule changes in high school football. The new blind side block rule seems confusing, but I think this provides a little clarity "The blindside block involves contact by a blocker against an opponent who, because of physical positioning and focus of concentration, is vulnerable to injury. Unless initiated with open hands, it is a foul for excessive and unnecessary contact when the block is forceful and outside of the free-blocking zone".

So you can still technically block someone that doesn't see you as long as you're going in with open hands, as opposed to coming in like a missile and blowing them up with your shoulder from how I interpreted that. It will be interesting to see if anything similar gets applied to the NCAA or NFL

I can definitely understand the appeal of staying and getting your degree. However, if someone told me that would be a millionaire in 5 months by going pro, that would be incredibly hard to turn down. If you go in the top 15, which Lattimore and Hooker can do, you're instantly making a ton of money just for your signing bonus, not even to mention your actual contract. Laremy Tunsil lost around 8 million (!) dollars just from dropping 7-8 spots, imagine how much you can lose if you forgo the draft and end up dropping a whole round or two due to injury or a slight drop in play.

Man oh man is mgoblog gonna be sad today. I ventured over there yesterday to see what they were saying about the situation and most of them were VERY confident they were about to get the #1 recruit in the nation. I'm gonna need to go back over and soak up some of those  UM tears. I can't say I'm looking forward to Bama getting another super talented RB for their offense though. Oh well, the bigger they are the harder they fall ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Comment 03 Jan 2017

A bit surprised to hear he's leaving the bears. Rookie Jordan Howard (a 5th rounder) had the 2nd most rushing yards in the league this year. I would hope he's getting some big $$

Comment 25 Dec 2016

That's ridiculous. Shame on the players, but how on earth did they get away with it for that long? I'm sure they don't have a ton of depth behind the starters, but sitting them for a series probably would have changed their mind on going against the game plan 

Comment 25 Dec 2016

I'll preface this by saying I didn't watch the game. However from what I've read, the players only went away from the game plan on the first series, maybe the first 2? I can't imagine the coaching staff would keep them out there for the whole first half if they were deliberately going against what they were told. It's my understanding Nelson didn't do much in their first series but proceeded to go off the rest of the first half. I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence that he had a huge game and they went against the game plan early or if that's really what contributed to his big game. Seems like it could be sports outlets taking the coincidence and making a story out of it for clicks if true. Just my two cents

Comment 01 Dec 2016

How sure are we that Gill is in? He's on campus all the time and just right down the road, but there have always been rumblings of him taking a look down south. Places like FSU can offer him the ability to play football and baseball, so I'm not sure I would want him to go down into the middle of SEC country. Just my 2 cents. Nice write up though, soon enough this 2017 class will be wrapped up and the recruiting frenzy will start up again!
