Even with landing Carman, if we could somehow pull this one off, it would be one of the biggest wins of the class. OT depth is pretty lean right now. Hell Wyatt Davis was working at tackle yesterday.
Won't have First Round measurables. Similar to Johnny Simon - extremely productive but not uber athletic or big enough for NFL standards. But Simon is still in the league so producing once you are drafted is much more important compared to when you get drafted.
1. Chase Young looks like a first rounder already
2. Looks like Erik Smith getting starter reps at SAF
3. Baugh looks to be in good shape, hopefully that toe heals up
TBH I noticed that in the Spring Game as well. Waits for the ball to fall into his lap, whereas with his size he needs to high point the ball which then makes him tough to cover.
Yup not worried about Babb at all. I selfishly wanted to see him workout, but now we can give more attention to some of the guys on the fence.
1. There are plenty of reports out there explaining his behavior at OSU, you can read them if you like.
2. I attended OSU congruent to Zeke. There's plenty of first hand and second hand accounts of his time on campus that show his behavior hasn't changed, obviously not going to get into specifics. You can continue to be a white knight for Zeke, but let's just agree that he needs some help and hope he finds it before his career is cut short.
Let's not group TG in with a dude who was accused of multiple counts of rape, OVI etc.
Miller is a pretty solid resource. Agreed with everything he stated above. I also think Dre'mont Jones has the highest potential of any of our draft eligible Dlineman.
If Carman shows up at FNL and spurns Clemson, everyone will be back on the presumption train that he's an OSU lock. He will most likely visit Clemson to continue to stir up interest.
Anytime in the offseason when I see an article start with a list of players names, I get a lump in my throat thinking its a group of dudes getting suspended...
Zeke was a party animal well before he was a millionaire. This stuff isn't out of the norm for him, he just needs to grow the fuck up.
Hasn't changed since college. His teammates and the support staff did a hell of a job keeping him out of the news/scanners during his time in Columbus.
Not a sexual assault claim from everything I know. She claims he beat her over a period of time - domestic violence. Just wanted to clarify for everyone.
Add Scruggs if we want him and another OT as well as another DT and I agree. I think we land another big 1-tech type tackle to pair with Vincent and potentially Smith if we kick him inside.
Lived in German Village, Brewery District, and Grandview. My suggestion is to stay away from the large apartment complexes that are blowing up in these areas and look for houses/duplex. I have lived in both, and the fancy, new complexes start off great but after a few months you realize they are bleeding you for cash slowly but surely and are some of the most unorganized businesses I have ever seen.
Ya everyone said he was torched in coverage all week. Makes sense tho since he's a thumper.
It's not stealing if everyone know what play is coming based upon formation and pre snap movement.
With Keandre Jones, Baron Browning and Malik Harrison waiting in the wings, I think the staff feels they can be selective with this last LB spot after locking up Gant and Mitchell. That being said we are for sure losing Baker and Worley after this season, and could lose Booker as well if he stays healthy. I think the staff is willing to "wait and see" regarding Pope and chase after the two poly LB's and potentially get back in with Pope if need be in the 11th hour.
Staff told Pope he has to wait. You know that means Urban feels good about landing Solo
It is Adolphus Washington v2.0. Cornell is neither quick enough for outside nor strong enough to play inside - always was that tweener. Smith is even more explosive than Washington.
This gets discussed ad nauseam around here. Urban says he wants more Ohio kids as lip service to the coaches throughout the state. Urban knows the importance of landing the top kids in your backyard, but won't reach for kids simply because of their zip code. One of the major differences from the Tressel era.
Bama, LSU, Texas etc. did not give him committable offers. Struggles in the pass game and some off field question marks. He straightens out and I think he might get a real offer from one of the big boys.
He is getting killed on the recruiting trail which is the biggest red flag. And not just to southern team. Kent St and Wright St as well.
Apparently his mom answered all media questions after the announcement...
