Peppers is a lot of hype, and a great athlete but has literally done nothing to warrant much praise...45 tackles last season, 5.5 for loss...no INTs, no FFs, no FRs ( and for those that watched him, he is not great in coverage)

"But he plays offense".... 4 yards a carry....less than 80 yds receiving

The 1 area where he stood out was kickoff returns, where is average return was 4th in the BIG Ten, behind 2 other Wolverines and a NW Wildcat....

Hand him the Heisman.....

This should say " JKP fighting an uphill battle to become a Buckeye"  ....247 has Okudah as the #1 S ( likely Buckeye), their #2 S is Brendan White and #3 is Isaiah Pryor. While it is probable that 1 of those guys turns LB (White), I don't think the majority of them do. Most recent reports are that Pryor looks great at S and will likely stay there. Then you add in the other DBs who themselves could see a move to S, and it's a loaded position group. Great player by all accounts, just isn't a "tier 1" DB right now for OSU it seems.

IF OSU isn't the pick for Lindsey, whom does the staff look to fit that slot WR/Hybrid type role? Most of the names mentioned are all bigger outside guys, and just haven't heard many names that match Lindsey's skill set. Dobbins?

I think Grimes fits that same mold. Both big, fast, NFL bodied type WRs..Grimes is slightly bigger and just as fast. I think both can make cases for the top WR and its hard to fault either 1. With Grimes I do like that he plays in FL at one of the elite programs in the nation and the competition that he goes against. DPJ blew people away at the Opening last year with his numbers ( Grimes couldn't make the trip.) I think if Trevon gets there this year you will see comparable numbers.

Bucknuts has a story on this, and they  suggest it is the Nebraska WRs coach...they posted a few of his tweets as well...

Comment 15 Apr 2016

Was hoping to see a few more additions and less subtractions, but with a small group it will give the staff the ability to focus on a few key guys and spend more time with them.

Fleeing a sinking ship it appears....wasnt long ago, there was a bit of optimism  for next year ( returning a young core and all)....that now appears to also be leaving.

Matta has to make the tourney next year....another miss and the program starts down a path that isnt always easy to recover from....

Kinda surprised Thomas hasnt jumped into the 1st round...sort of an underwhelming WR class, but with the leagues pass heavy ways...I figured a guy like Thomas would be valued more . ( could be best WR, and is at least top 3)

Also Kiper is reallllly sleeping on Lee....everyone else likes him in the mid to top mid of the 1st....does Kiper really think he drops to the 2nd round?...with Jaylon Smith failing his medicals, the LB class lost arguably its top prize....

Comment 01 Mar 2016

I dont think Jones really lost anything...yet...anyways...he put up a very good 40 time for his size and I was very impressed with his vertical...throwing could have boosted his stock for sure, but not throwing didnt kill it either imo....now he gets more time to practice and throw to WRs he is comfortable with on his home turf...it may actually have been a smart move if he does well at his pro day ( which just as many scouts will be in attendance)

I think Thomas's stock may he risen a little too....great numbers physically ( hand size/arms)...strong bench and a 40 time I think that was expected...I also dont think the WRs that he is up against put up WOW numbers to move ahead of Thomas...and Treadwell didnt even compete ( one WR I think ive seen mentioned as going before Mike)...I think he has a legit shot as the first WR off the board....

Comment 29 Feb 2016

Williamson looking very very good....he'll probably drop out of the Rivals250 entirely now....

Comment 26 Feb 2016

Not that he is on that level but Orlando Pace did 24 reps.....and there are 185lbers that can crank out more than that....Pace turned out alright and Decker will still be a 1st round selection...

Comment 23 Feb 2016

Rivals just updated their top 250 and WIlliamson was one of their biggest " Sliders" falling in the rankings because of his size and difficulty he was having in coverage :/

Comment 19 Feb 2016

Speed can sometimes be over-rated...and its not uncommon to see some of these bigger guys run 4.5-4.7 40s....they arent all freaks like Grimes...

Anquan Boldin ran a 4.71 40 at the combine, but was a pretty good WR.

As of now, I think the WR class shakes out with Grimes, Harris and Lindsey....making it the top WR class in the nation. There is not another WR in this class better than Grimes...247 loves DPJ and I think a lot of that is based on his winning the SPARQ at the Opening last year...dont get me wrong, he is a great WR, I just think Grimes is on another level.

Richardson may very well headline MSU's WR class, given OSU's scholarship numbers and amount of WRs in play...though it wouldnt be totally shocking to see him added to the class if additional room is found or certain players dont turn out.

Comment 04 Feb 2016

From what ive read most think he will head elsewhere....OSU will take a TE imo, id watch Trey Pugh, big athletic kid...just now starting to take off and get some serious offers.
