Look no further at the state of State Penn during the JT period and the current time period.  A definitely different program due to their penalties.  That's not Urban's fault, but they were much more of a power 10 years ago (and we were also fortunate in 2014 to beat them).

It should be noted that they can also change their number if they make the 53 man roster and another number they preferred opens up due to cuts.  Cam Heyward was initially number 95 before switching to 97 after the pre-season.

Here are the guidelines for numbers in the NFL:

1-9 Quarterbacks and Kickers
10-19 Quarterbacks, Receivers, Tight Ends, and Kickers
20-49 Running Backs and Defensive Backs
50-59 Centers and Linebackers
60-79 Defensive Linemen and Offensive Linemen
80-89 Receivers and Tight Ends (or 40-49 if those ranges are taken)
90-99 Defensive Linemen and Linebackers

 The only other tight end on roster last season to do anything of sustenance was John Phillips, and he only had one touchdown reception.

I guess this is true if you disregard LaDarius Green, who left via free agency to Pittsburgh. Green had 429 yards and 4tds for San Diego, averaging over 11 ypc.  Maybe you meant to say the only other tight end currently on the roster to do anything last season?

Powell graduated already and, lets face it, one more year at OSU wouldn't have helped his stock.  It was a surprise he declared but he has put in his time and buckeye nation should support/thank him. 

As for Marshall, lets just say school isn't for everyone. 

Comment 27 Apr 2016

I think they already have their project in Sammie Coates.  While I think they could go WR this draft, I think they will go with someone more experienced/polished, since Martavis is a knucklehead and Wheaton is in a contract year (and has been underwhelming but for 3 games of his career). 

Comment 27 Apr 2016

I guess we can disagree.  He was a stud at 1 tech in 2014 because he was flanked by Bosa and Bennett...no one could afford to double him.  He moved to 3 Tech because he is more natural there...so I do not see how going to 3-4 NT will benefit him.  He really isn't a great run stopper/plugger in the middle.  He is very similar to the guy the steelers let go,  a better version of McClendon, who wasn't a very good NT. 

Comment 26 Apr 2016

Not sure about the Steelers being a landing spot for Washington, unless they are picking him for depth at DE.  Washington is not strong enough at the point of attack to be a 3-4 NT, which is the area the steelers need a player.  Tuitt and Heyward have the DE spots locked down and they just signed a depth DE in RIcardo Matthews.  They need to replace Steve McClendon, who played about 25% of the snaps anyways. 

Comment 25 Apr 2016

Its great idea if they cut Landry and sign a veteran to be the backup, but it still doesn't make a lot of sense for them to do it with immediate needs on defense (and even WR).  Ben is signed for 4 more years (Carson Palmer only 2 more) and barring a severe injury/sudden retirement, isn't going anywhere.  He's in his prime right now.  I don't think its comparable to the Cowboys situation.

I agree, however, it is a good chance if you have kids to get pics with these guys, FWIW.   

I just did find an old Will Smith autographed picture I got years ago...that will be going up on the buckeye wall asap.
