Wow -- looking forward to seeing him play.  He might not have the extreme athleticism that sometimes accompanies 5-star prospects.  But he seems to have plenty.  And he seems to arrive with bad intentions every time he comes after a ball carrier.

Agree that his 'football instincts' and 'sniffing out the play' intangibles are key to his value vs 'the run'.  He looks good in the middle zone vs 'the pass' as well.

Welcome, Tejada!

Love these.  I wish you would provide links to the prior ones at the bottom, as I am sure I missed several of them.

MLB is a tough position because the MLB often makes adjustment calls. Teradja will need to learn the scheme quickly and excel in pass defense to break the two-deep in 2018, but I'm excited for his future. The dude is a wrecking ball.

Agreed.. He lowers the boom every opportunity he gets. You can't reach that... Love it.

All due respect, let's wait to heap praise on a kid who has yet to play a snap for the Good Guys and make comparisons to a guy who played in the league for thirteen (I think?) years?

I have a dream. Ok, please don't give me shit about that response because of todays significance. MLK assassination.

I worried that the Florida State - Honey fried chicken that was rumored to be delicious would work against us. We need a signature food dish. Luckily it all worked out perfectly.

I think he will be a good one. Needs to keep a low BF and work on his footwork and his explosion and getting to know the calls and alignments. I see a slightly less athletic.. but harder hitting Raekown.

Growing up in Virginia Beach, I'd never thought that any football player from my alma mater would ever play for the Buckeyes (mostly because they sucked!) but they turned this program into a powerhouse from being almost non-existent when I graduated in 2000.  I don't think anyone went on to play football at any level, let alone the best program in the country, from my junior or senior years!  I'm excited to see him this fall!

Vico, appreciate all the great writing. Quick question, why do you spend a huge paragraph at the front describing what you're about to tell us anyway?
