6'3 3/8" for Haskins... not bad at all.

Not often that you see a QB whose official height is taller than what their school listed.

My prediction is he gets up and starts walking towards the podium before his name is called. And he does that quite a few times. And as people shake his hand, he will hold the embrace much too long for comfort.

Does he start an interview kinda weak, pull it together, only to botch it all at the end?

Or that McLaurin is the heavier of the two. McLaurin always looks so slender and lanky

Wow, you can see a 1/4" difference in height?  Maybe the helmets change their appearance.  Don't know, could their helmets be set differently?  Or were you talking about their appeances on the sideline without helmets?

That lake would be Grand Lake ST MARYS, of course. I grew up there a LONG time ago - before it was green.

I would have guessed Parris was a couple inches taller, but actually shorter. I thought I looked like Chris Helmsworth too but my wife said that wasn't accurate either.

Maybe since the lake was green my whole life, that has caused me issues [its a mud hole but dammit, its my mud hole]????

Haskins hands are good sized. They measured larger than Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold, as well as Russell Wilson.

9" would be considered alright, 9 1/2" and up is great, over 10" is excellent.

PhillyNut's picture

Maybe not within the football world but...

There are some who say there is a direct correlation to the size of the hand and the size of something else on a guy.  Even if it just a myth if there are those who believe it then they will be touting their hand size if abnormally large.

Not that I am saying I think they messed up something as simple as measurements, but I never in a million years could imagine Kyler Murray standing next to Parris Campbell and them being less than 2" different.  More surprised about Parris really.  I mean 5-9" or 5-10", that's still short either way you slice it.  Always thought Campbell looked legitimately 6-1"+ on the field, though.

He's so bloated from water retention that he has now dropped out of all the on field workouts.

Yep and now everyone and their brother has him being taken as the first QB, maybe first overall. This is crazy ludicrous. Look, he’s a talented player. First round worthy. But so many now proclaiming he’s the #1 QB because he’s 1 and 1/8 inch taller than 5’9”. Just makes no sense. By that reasoning, wouldn’t a QB who measures 6 plus inches taller than 5’9” be six times better?

The last NFL QB 5-10 or shorter drafted was Doug Flutie in the 11th round in 1985!!! 

And back then, the other positions werent the huge athletic beasts they are today. 

NFL QBs just arent that size, sorry.   Murray will be out of the NFL in 2-3 years.  Its cute and kind of  a nice story to root for him, but the odds are against him.

Those bench numbers for Prince and Jordan are pretty bad.  As a point of reference, sort this from last year. 19 would basically be the worst OL on the board.

HS
bucks22's picture

Princes numbers are fine.  If you strictly look at the OT, the range for the bench press is anywhere from 14 to 28.

Orlando Brown was selected in the 3rd round and he was the one that did 14.  

19 for an OG on the other hand is not very good.  

HS
RK84's picture

23 reps with that wingspan pretty solid for Prince. I expected Jordan to be in the 25-30 range. Maybe a bad day.

The wingspan has a lot to do with. At 150 in college I could do 20 reps. But at 5-7 it was easier

I agree.  Not an NFL scout or anything, but Prince and Jordan pressed less than I would have expected.  Don't we have a freshman coming in that does 225 lbs. 23 times or something already?

BuckeyeinFlorida's picture

Coach Mick is incredibly good. No easy explanation for what appears to be a lack of strength in some players. Strength is like knowledge. Can't ever have too much. I would love for every player on the roster to have continued and constant improvement in strength. No position isn't helped by being stronger than the guy across from you. Maybe weak reps by O linemen explains weak run blocking.

HS
bucknutz18's picture

23 for Prince is better than I was expecting.  He has long arms so never was going to put up crazy numbers.  19 for Jordan as a guard is a red flag.  I'd be shocked if Mick gave him the greenlight to go pro without putting up 20 reps at 225.

Weber lead all RBs.

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:

Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

Alex Barnes hit 34, breaking the RB record. 

Actually, Weber tied with 4 other players for 6th place for RB bench press.

22 is not that big of a number for a guy who is 5-9 211.

Also RB tend to be powerfully built and fast twitch...OL not so much. The gap is not as much as you might think..although obviously you will see more OL get to 30+ reps.

Still - Barkley and Chubb each put up 29 reps last year, Webber's 22 would have been tied for 3rd. He will probably be top 5 for rb's this year.

My 40 time predictions (I do this every year):

Bosa - 4.69
Campbell - 4.34
Dixon - 4.47
Haskins - 4.81
Jones - 4.92
McLaurin - 4.38
Sheffield - 4.33
Weber - 4.48

HS

Those are pretty realistic times. 4.2x times are exceedingly rare; I don't recall any Buckeye in recent memory running that fast.

HS
cdub4's picture

I like it. Do you happen to recall what Sheffield or Campbell's OSU charted times were?

I do recall we have discussed using those and also Nike Opening times as a base for estimates. I recall Campbell and Mclaurin being in 4.36-4.41 range during SPARQ testing.

HS
Brandon26841's picture

I wish I could find that pic but I know they were in the 4.2's. You always add about .12 to .15 seconds onto OSU hand held times. I do remember Ward was still at the top of the leaderboard with a 4.19 or something goofy (4.32 at the combine).

HS
Brandon26841's picture

281 pounds for Dre'Mont? Interesting. Definitely not a great weigh in for him and pretty much relegates him to a 3rd down interior pass rushing 3-tech role. Hopefully he tears up the 40 at that weight though (4.8's maybe?). 

HS
Triv's picture

Yeah, that would make Dremont one of the smallest DTs in the league. Ed Oliver's weight was the big concern and he came in at 6 pounds heavier than Jones.

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

HS
Buckeye06's picture

Jones could also be a DE in a 3-4 for sure though.  He isn't solely a DT

HS
Brandon26841's picture

You don't see too many 6-2 3/4" 5-techniques, but he's got pretty good length (6-8 wingspan). I just don't think that's using his skill set in the best way possible. He's a penetrator; using him as a two gapping 3-4 DE just seems like a bit of a waste, but I think in one-gap schemes sure, he could probably play there. 

I might like him more as a 4-3 base end than a 3-4 end honestly at 280 lbs. 

HS
mmp15f's picture

I actually was thinking that he'd be great as a 4 or a 4i in a 3-4, but your point about how asking him to 2-gap would eliminate his penetration abilities is something I hadn't considered, so that's definitely a good insight on your part. I think we might see him in many different positions along the D-line throughout his career because of his versatility, to be honest. Sure his 40 time wasn't great, but his explosiveness is proven and that's far more important for a D-lineman than being able to run 40 yards in a straight line. 

Do you think he'd benefit from cutting down 10lbs and trying to make a career as a 5 or a 9 technique? I personally feel like he should try to put on an extra 10lbs and continue as a 3-tech. He was so great at it in college

HS
Brandon26841's picture

Gain the weight and play 3-tech for sure. I'm pretty surprised by his combine numbers TBH... it wasn't just the 40 time either; the other numbers weren't so hot as well. He was listed at 295 lbs this past season... I'm not sure if he played at that weight and then slimmed down to put up better numbers (didn't seem to work) but you probably don't want someone playing 9-tech running a 5.15 40 combined with the bad shuttle times he put up.  

This is all sort of reminding me of Adolphus Washington a few years back (was seen as a fringe 1st rounder all season, surprisingly underwhelming combine, goes in 3rd round but has a solid journeyman career). Washington would flash top 15 potential every now and then as well but could just never put it all together consistently.

Washington - 6033, 301 LBS, 5.17 40, 27 vert, 8-3 broad, 4.79 shuttle, 8.06 3-cone
Jones - 6026, 281 LBS, 5.14 40, 31.5 vert, 9-2 broad, 4.53 shuttle, 7.71 3-cone

HS
mmp15f's picture

Damn. Thanks for pointing out how similar their combines were; definitely interesting. I think Jones is more of a playmaker and has a higher ceiling than Washington though; he was in the backfield a lot more than Washington ever was. 

I think he has great potential as a 3-tech. Like I said in my first reply, it took you pointing out how asking him to 2-gap would take away his penetration abilities for me to second-guess his potential as a 4-tech. Maybe he'll surprise us both though. Again, I think he looked better than Washington did during his career, but I definitely understand why you used Washington as a comparison

HS
Trebor40's picture

Two tenths is actually a bigger factor then inferred, I think Jones quickness makes a greater impact!

Weber out benched Jordan by 3 reps.  Umm...  MJ might have wished he stayed in college for 1 more season.  Weber has started off in beast mode.  I have liked him since day 1 but the injuries hurt his # of carries.  Stay fresh and show them what you can do.  I hope he can go late in round 2 or early in round 3.

HS

Guys who are in the 6-6 range have a hard time benching.  They have to move the weight much further.

The 5.27 time and only 19 reps on the bench are going to put Michael Jordan in the bottom portion of the lineman tested.

Web is a burner, 4.38 as listed on NFL.com.  Book it.  He is moving up nicely on the draft boards.  Urbs just did not use him as much as he should have.  To me, he looked like our best back this year and it was not as close as most would think

HS
hnyg8modonwelfare's picture

Agree with everything except the "Urb did not use him enough" thought.  He used him when JTB was the QB plenty when he wasn't banged up. 

The offense changed this year with Haskins, not to mention the OL was not that consistent.

I will agree, Weber was our best back.  Dobbins is a stud too, but I thought Weber's experience showed at times.

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

Weber came into OSU a little bit chubby and tightened his body up/shed some fat.

It's possible redshirt freshman Weber was a 4.6-4.65 guy and has made himself a 4.45-4.5 guy. It happens...that why you come to Ohio State.

Weber also made the bottom of the infamous Woody Hayes measurement board in the 40, with around 4.37 and I think it was around the same tine as Jerome Baker...so expected a 4.45 to 4.5 from him. You gotta add .13 or so to OSU times LOL.

Webb = 4.40 > 4.62 (+.20)

Roby = 4.26 > 4.39 (+.13)
Miller = 4.32 > 4.50 (+.18)
Grant = 4.32 > 4.44 (+.12)
Smith = 4.33 > 4.42 (+.09)
Shazier = 4.35 > 4.36 at his pro day on OSU's notoriously fast track. Probably would have been a 4.45 in Indy (still ridiculous).

They did the same stuff at Florida. Too late to change my predictions but I should probably have guessed late 4.3's for Campbell and Sheffield and mid 4.4's for McLaurin seeing this again.

It isn't a perfect system. One theory I have is it seems the more track experience the player has, like Campbell and Ward running sprints in HS and Sheffield on 2 levels, the more consistent your start, times, mechanics are going to be. Devin Smith ran track too.

It could be random, but the track guys seem to be .09-.11 off.

I will go 4.35 for Campbell and 4.34 for Sheffield...and how about a 4.44 for Mclaurin.

I agree, Gunner.  I also wondered why Karan Higdon was even invited to the combine.  He ran a 4.5 but he never did anything special during the season, IMO.  It'll be interesting to see where he gets drafted.

UM honk Rich Eisen said he was surprised at Mike Weber's 40 time.  He also kept saying a player was from "The" Ohio State University when he spoke of a Buckeye during the combine.  I could be wrong but I believe it was a subtle mock.  Show some respect, A hole.

NFL.com also has Hidgon as the higher rated back which is absolutely asinine IMO. 

Weber isn’t a first round back but he is a capable and serviceable back who should have a very respectable career.

One thing to keep in mind is how goofy the "official" times can be. Most teams just use their own personal hand times and pay no mind to the official time. Remember when Taylor Mays did this?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdPmexUhjWk

They gave him like an official 4.47 or something, but almost every team in attendance had him in the high 4.2's to low 4.3's. That electronic timer can be a little off if a player moves a hand or something right before they start going. I think Weber is probably more of a 4.48 guy (which is what they timed him at twice), but I'm stoked about the 4.38. I'd like to see the simulcast with some other RBs. 

Alright, FINALLY an official time of 4.47 seconds for Weber. Great time for him (and about what I expected).

4.47 is great for somebody who gets momentum like a bowl ball.

The tape shows him blowing by safeties. Forget the gaping hole. The safeties were not up at the line.

Dang Campbell.  That could be the lowest reps in the history of the combine.

The honey badger put up 4 if I recall. Christian McCaffrey put up 10, which probably was the lowest total ever for a RB.

Jones at 280 MIGHT be a concern to the big boys, very light for a DT in most schemes and not really a DE either. I've seen him mocked in the second round, be interesting to see if he drops because of his weight.

Weber having more bench press reps than Jordan is surprising...I know arm length plays a role, and Weber may have overachieved, but Jordan bombed that...

Parris' official time is upgraded to 4.31. He's also killed it in the vert and long jumps and had a nice skill session. Might see him in the late first round.

Nick Bosa at 4.84 is kinda of where I expected him to be although I was hoping for a time closer in the mid 4.7s.

Drill reviews for Bosa have all been very, very positive. Basically of the "yeah, he's good" type of affirmations.

Jones's 40 was slow, but much better in drills in showing quickness, burst, etc. Scouts are saying he's fairly a lock for top-50, which may disappoint some, but probably not surprise many given his 40 time and weight.

The straight forward run yes but he was only a tenth of a second slower than Parris in the 20 yard shuttle. He is not going to be asked to chase down receivers but moving quickly around linemen is critical.

Montez Sweat DE Miss St 6-6 260 lbs. 40 time: 4.41. 

WOW is all I can say.

Work out warriors don't always translate to being great football players.

Vernon Gohlston comes to mind for me as an example from the past.

But you got to give it up for that kind of speed and explosion in the 40.  

Buckeye since 1952.

HS
Brandon26841's picture

At least Sweat has been productive in his career (29.5 TFL, 22 sacks the past 2 seasons). That's easily one of the freakiest combine 40's in history. Showed some stiffness during the field drills, but that straight line speed is insane for a 260 lb man. That's a number people "oooooooh" and "awwwww" at for a 5-11, 190 lb CB.
