It is impossible to find a statistically less sloppy college football player in America than Jeffrey Okudah.

And if you don't have the stats handy, it wasn't that hard to see him in action – he played for one of the highest-profile teams in the country and participated in several of the highest-profile games of the season.

If you cover NFL draft prospects, locating tape on Ohio State Buckeyes like Okudah is like finding sand at the beach. And yet:

Mystifying. Okudah is an objectively elite, not-sloppy-at-all top 5ish pick who will be on a plane with the team who drafts him to the city where he'll play while the early rounds are still happening. It's hard to come up with a dumber comment. Tell'em, Teradja Mitchell's dad:

"Joe, what have you done to correct the swagger deficiency you showed while at LSU?"


"Chase, there's talk that you don't have the size or speed to succeed at the next level. Can you address that?"


"Tua, you routinely gave up on plays and showed reluctance to improvise at Alabama. What are you doing to play less scared at the next level?"


"Justin, people are questioning your arm strength. What do you say to them?"


"Isaiah, are you concerned you don't have the speed or range to play East-West in the NFL?"


"CeeDee, you didn't make many big plays at Oklahoma. Are you going to be more than a possession receiver?"

The NFL Draft begins Thursday, April 23rd.
