Surprised the Powell has been passed up in favor of safeties no one heard of. Yes, he was prone to some bad angles at times - but he was a key player on a great defense, on a team that went 50-4. He has a knack for making big plays in big games. He's 6'3". He ran a 4.46 at the combine and has a 34.5 vertical. Strange he's lasted this long.
Don't want to take my scarlet colored glasses off! :)
It will be interesting to see how both guys pan out in the NFL. Admittedly, I'm thinking about Perry's value to Cleveland in more than just football terms. Let's say they're comparable in talent (they were only separated by a few picks).
I'd argue Perry has more value to Cleveland as a son of Ohio and as a leader.
It just "seems" that Ohio teams don't value Ohio State players. I'm not saying you take a Buckeye who is a lesser player over a better player from another team. But if they're equal - isn't it good business to take Buckeyes?
I've just always wondered why the Browns and the Bengals seem to under-value Buckeyes. It's not like we are talking about amazing, winning organizations either. Perhaps they're just a little salty OSU rules Ohio? IDK. The Steelers seem to value Buckeyes and it's worked out well for them.
I haven't been that impressed with anyone from Wisky's defense since Chris Borland. I cannot see how Schobert is better than Perry. But perhaps my estimation of him being out of the league in four years is unfair (born of frustration that Ohio NFL teams seem to try to avoid Ohio State players).
Just saw San Diego drafted Josh Perry! Joining Joey Bosa. Maybe I should thank Cleveland for not ruining the young man's NFL future.
Ted Ginn Jr. Has made a nice career for himself as that, too.
It looked to me like he got up, turned, and immediately saw and locked on to Coach Mick. Urban was coming from the side. I don't like it's any big snub from what I saw. Awkward on film after, though.
As a Chiefs fan living in Kansas City, I approve this message. Andy could coach CJ12 up. The offense has enough similarities.
Byron Scott gave management what they wanted with a Kobe farewell tour. That was a commitment to an exhibition season.
Yet, knowing they were gonna lose a lot of games still didn't play DRuss to let him learn and grow. It was mind boggling. Maybe that's what got him fired in the end.
I'm counting Spence as a Buckeye in this draft.
From what I've seen on limited HS tape, Potter and Funderburk are more capable of playing the stretch 4 Giddens thought he should play. I think Thad can play two bigs if that 4 can rebound and step out and shoot.
Would love to see Tate really develop his shot, at least inside the arc, so he could play the 2 & 3 as well. Love his hustle, don't love that we have him at the 4.
Thought he had a lot of strength and ran a 4.6. When he attacked in one direction with confidence, he did that well. Thought that might translate to 3-4 edge OLB.
Where he struggled was making reads. He could succeed as an ILB in the 3-4 IF he's not having to call the defense. I see C Grant as needing to have straightforward responsibilities.
Doesn't LeBeau run a 3-4? I always thought Curtis should be an edge rushing type OLB in a 3-4. I thought he was out of place as a MLB. He could be like a poor man's Justin Houston. See the QB, sack the QB... And the occasional drop into coverage of a TE.
I don't think Belein could do this is the Michigan administration didn't support it and seek league support for it ... In the same year they sought out an Iowa transfer in football.
May not be Beleins hypocrisy as much as it is the schools. IMO.
Friday in New Zealand.
But he didn't bust him out. That's the key difference. This was admittedly prank behavior that they both engaged in.
Its not a dick move if he made no attempt to hide it and only shared it with Nick Young.
That he didn't delete the video long ago and shared it privately with Nick over Instagram... Well, that's dumb. People, esp. Celebs need to realize their phones/social media are always under hacking threat.
I get that. I guess it's just that Nick Young is 11 years older. But maybe it was just normal for Bball teammates.
Reports are the two did these things regularly.
Unfortunate that DRuss got hacked.
Cant figure out why a 30 year old man is playing social media prank games with a 19 year old kid.
I thought he was hacked?
I did so more yesterday. Still think he was wrong and immature.
But you essentially have a 30 year old playing these "video" prank games with him...encouraging the behavior.
Problem is... DRuss is 19 and his frontal lobe isn't closed yet. This was stupidity more than being a dick.
I'm glad I wasn't a teen in this digital/social media age.
And Swaggy P is a 30 year old pro, not a kid. And he's a cheater.
Great find. I was impressed with how he reacted yesterday. That shows deeper character. We are all flawed. It's how we get back up and respond in a crisis that reveals.
