You can improve straight line speed just not by that much.  Anyways, you're right.  You're not getting drafted as a WR if you run a 4.68.  Yes, measurables are overrated but that is how it is.   The NFL will draft guys solely on potential.  http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/moritz-boehringer?id=2556261

Marshall would have been better off showing the NFL scouts better skills on the game film and trying to shave some time off his 40.

I still think Marshall can be like Philly Brown.  Marshall can make a team as a punt returner and backup slot WR.  He is extremely shifty and agile which are very underrated attributes

I think that Marshall will be underdrafted.  He will go pretty late but will probably be a good player--see Philly Brown.  Marshall will have to take his PR skills seriously though.

BTW, in the OT, I was paraphrasing what they said on NFL.com during the broadcast of the draft.

“Seeing the smiles on their faces makes me feel so much better,” Bosa said of the picks of his fellow Buckeyes. “That’s why we came to Ohio State — to play at the next level.”  https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/the-latest-jared-goff-has-tough-pedigree-to-live-up-to/2016/04/28/0bafb170-0da1-11e6-bc53-db634ca94a2a_story.html

Well, that's true.  You really don't get it though.  Today is recruiting

I am also trying to make the point that the spread is more prevalent in the NFL than a lot of people think

Vinnie Vincent was one of the few guys that could replace Ace Frehley, but Gene and Paul really did not want to make Vincent a real member of the band--i.e. percentage of the gross.  Vincent had a role in most of the good songwriting after Ace.  He even helped out on the Revenge album. 

Comment 27 Apr 2016

Yeah, I had an argument w/ this one lady who was in her 50s that said Kiss was a disco band.  I had to disagree, but putting out an album like The Elder and songs like I Was Made for Loving You and Beth and generally just doing a lot of things for an extra buck will leave some people to think that.

It looks like Stanford has a shot at the playoffs if Ohio St loses to Oklahoma.  Hopefully, Notre Dame's overrated asses don't slip into the playoffs ever.

Bosa doesn't want to play for a Hairball

Comment 26 Apr 2016

Your typical NFL team runs a spread offense for the most part--e.g Brady, Brees, etc .  What is somewhat rare is to see the read option.  Of course, there are the obvious dual threat QBs in the NFL, but the RO has had an influence on the NFL more than people think.  Rodgers and Big Ben are not considered dual-threats but they use RPOs.  Andy Dalton is not considered dual threat, but you will see him pull the ball and run it himself once in awhile--many others like this, too. 

Comment 22 Apr 2016

You could easily see the tight end position become the most creative position on the field.  Baugh and Alexander are like Vannett and Heuerman because they can play both in-line and flexed.  The coaches should be able to do some interesting things with the hurry up and create some mismatches with personnel. 

I kind of like the idea of letting the TE become our more-the-chains, possession receiver, since Thomas is gone.

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Yeah, usually, the TE is a 2nd or 3rd option in the passing game, so they get more involved in the pro game than the college game.  I think with all of these 0-deep coverages with the safeties really getting involved in run support that they can probably get the TE involved more, but then again, now some of these safeties are letting WRs get behind them, so why not throw it deep--see 14' B1G Champ game. 

Comment 21 Apr 2016

I heard Brown was running straight line only during the spring, so he is ahead of schedule and won't show up to fall camp fat and out of shape. 

I think McLaurin, Campbell, McCall and KJ Hill will get serious looks at H-B in fall camp.  How much they play there depends on the amount Meyer wants to play in 2-TE sets and how healthy Samuel and Wilson are in the fall.  I think the H-WR is the place where you need a rotation the most, if they are not playing a huge amount of 2-TE sets
