I'm not overly concerned with the OL. Having the teams split up like they did, there's no fair way to grade them out as a whole. I think had they put their "1's" out there, there would've been more positive reviews. I'm thinking that come game 1, the OL will be just fine.
Jones won the day? I must be blind or maybe I was watching a different spring game. I thought JT looked more explosive with his runs. I thought that JT slightly was the better passer. I think I need to go back and watch this game again, clearly I missed something.
Have number ones is always nice. However, if the number ones don't fit what you're doing, then you have a problem. I'm not sure that Beanie would've been as good in Coach Meyer's offense. He was more of the traditional power back. Carlos thrived because (in my opinion) he had better footwork, was more nimble than most realized and could catch coming out of the backfield.
Fortunately, he's a Buckeye. Sir Bosa!!!!!!
I think that if the Browns were to take Carlos with the 2nd pick in the 1st round, not only would that be a great pic, but it would also be a great way to put asses in seats. It's a perfect fit, he's workhorse and they need one.
I don't care how many stars he was rated, I don't care what position he played in HS... he's a Buckeye and if he's the best man for the job, then he's the next man up.
I will say that if he stays at "average".... it's still pretty damn good!
~Tyquan Lewis was running with the second-team defensive line, in front of Jamal Marcus"
Did I miss something? I thought Marcus looked great in the Orange Bowl.
I'm not sure why but Darron Lee is a surprise to me. Anyone else feel the same way?
One awesome dude!
I can't wait to see what Bosa looks like after his first full year with Coach Marotti
I think that this year's team, as a whole, will be more explosive in all phases. I think the youth movement will be to our advantage
Is it just me or did spring practice get here awfully quick this year? Wait... maybe it's because I'm still not over the Clemson and the Big Ten title game.
freshman tour de force Joey Bosa ".....I just love that description. Said perfectly, nicely done!
Welcome coach Johnson, it's nice to have you on our side now.
When the Robert Plant of Head Coaches sits down on your coach, you have to be in awe.....

(I'm leaving my mistake up for anyone that wants to have fun at my expense)
Nice catch! Time to edit... lol Thumbs up for you
Of all the guys on the line, I'm most excited to see Jamal Marcus next season. He had a coming out party against Clemson and I think he's got a massive upside.
This is just a very unfortunate situation for the entire family. It's to the point where I can only wish the kid and his family the best of luck on whatever decision is made amongst them. On one hand, I am rooting for the kid to be able to go where he wants. On the other hand, as a parent, you should always have your children's best interest in the forefront.
The competition will only make the team better. It's going to be exciting to see who steps up and who doesn't meet the challenge.
Time to separate the men from the boys
In talking about the starting offensive line, i think that Pat Elfein has more than proved that he can hold his own. I'm all for competition, but I think that he's proved that he's the man for the job. Plus Boren at Center, he played well. I think that the LG spot is wide open.
I don't mean to correct Coach Meyer, but this isn't a good class....this is a GREAT class!
Every year after signing day, I'm always excited to see what is to come, but this year's recruiting class just seems to have so much athleticism .
One player that I don't think is getting talked about enough (just my opinion) is Erik Smith. He was lights out on national television. I think he's going to make a strong push for playing time. I think he might end up being the jewel of the class. again, just my opinion.
I voted Dylan, there's just something about him that makes me think that he's going to do great things here (not that others aren't). I thought about Slade for a minute thinking that he could be our next Jamal Marcus. Dylan just looks like he has that "I'm here to chew bubble gum and kick ass....I'm all out of bubble gum" look.
I think you're about to see a very hungry football team.
Whoever the Buckeyes play on gameday is our rival.
Talking about all this speed is all good and fine, but I'm going to hold back my excitement until I see them on the field. Speed on the bench doesn't help us score points.
I'm still waiting to see that game changing speed of Wilson that was talked about all offseason and spring.
Of the position groups that are replacing key players... RB is NOT a position that I'm concerned about. Plenty of able horses in the stable.
