To everyone saying two weeks is too long, damn, give the poor cats that have to type out the report that is acceptable to all the egos on the committee and have it edited 1000 times a break. Sounds to me like they know what needs to be done and are finalizing. Always better to overdeliver and putting together a report which will surely be scrutinized takes time.
Not necessarily, Sometimes you just don't want to escalate a situation.
Been a while. Just wanted to say hi!
Congrats to Nate. Is it accurate to call him an Ohio State standout? What’s remarkable about Nate is that he was unremarkable at Ohio State. He didn’t stand out. Yet he still managed to find his NFL niche
I thought today would be quiet and I'd have to remind myself that "being in the top 5 ain't bad"
I think he also adds something to a QB room. He's smart, reliable, and that rubs off on people. He'd do great in a situation where a team drafts a qb high and has a vet on the team so that he could be in competition with the higher draft pick. I think he'd make the higher pick a hell of a lot better. Or if, somehow the Browns land Cousins. Instead of drafting a QB high, taking JT would be great because he'd make Kizer a hell of a lot better.
Mack will be the next great Ohio State receiver in the NFL. Mark it down.
Mack has "NFL receiver" written all over him. He will break out. He has the length, the hands, the speed, and the body positioning to be really really good.
I never get caught up in LeBron era Cavs chill mode drama and it has served me well.
Yep. We also know Arizona didn’t think there was much to the allegations.
Arizona looked into it and it appeared there wasn’t much to the allegations. So little, that they did pay him. I’d give the guy the benefit of the doubt in a situation like that until their is some additional evidence beyond a compliant.
There were kids from ‘bama claiming they were being forced out for medical reasons when healthy. I can only remember one such claim here, and that player was starter quality.
I pulled the following from a write up about the 2014 class:
– Campbell is one of the youngest players in the 2014 recruiting class as a whole. In fact, he still can't drive a car with more than one other additional person in yet as he is still 16 years old (he committed when he was 15).
– He doesn't turn 17 years of age until this summer and won't be 18 until his sophomore year of college.
Parris was young when he began his Ohio State career (I believe he was 16 when he enrolled). He is still a young guy with the potential to make another huge leap forward. Don't sleep on him. I think we're seeing someone that is just putting things together and poised to be a serious game changer.
I do have questions about his durability and his slight frame, but it seemed to me that he's playing chess while Darnold is playing checkers. Though if the Browns drafted Darnold I wouldn't be upset.
I actually have a great feeling about this off season. There is a solid base and I think the Browns are in the position if the do grab the right qb (big if), they'll be able to add some great pieces this draft and be fairly competitive with a young emerging core.
In addition to QB, I'd like to see Fitz, a RB (Love?), OT, EDGE, and a slot receiver. Much of that can be snagged in the draft and if not, there will be plenty of cap space.
I agree I've heard/read a lot of Barkley at 1, and I don't get it especially with some of the studs that will be there in the second and considering rb is somewhat of a luxury.
I'd smash my TV if they drafted Barkley at 1. There are plenty of good rbs available in the second round that would be upgrades.
Don't overthink it. Sign a vet QB and draft Rosen or Darnold, I agree with Minkah at 4 and would be ecstatic. I like your other picks.
I completely disagree. Rosen pops off the screen when I watch him. Over 60% is a good completion percentage given the throws he makes and how many drops he suffers. Rosen is the best QB prospect I've seen since Luck. The Browns should absolutely draft him.
Buckeye-wise, Jarmarco in the 2nd would be great, as would one of the Buckeye DEs (the Browns could use another pass rusher). Of course Ward would be an amazing add but I doubt he is around in a place were the Browns could snag him.
Yes, (and thanks for the nonobvious correction). I'd love to see him at FS for the Browns, would allow Peppers to play closer to the line of scrimmage were he is better suited.
There are plenty of good running backs in this draft. Browns should snag one in the second or third. I like Kirkpatrick out of bama with the Houston pick (6-8) and Rosen at 1.
Rosen's talent jumps off the screen. He is the surest thing as a qb prospect I've seen since Luck. Only issue is injuries. But if he stays healthy, I think he's a star.
Yes! Without wifi the cellular networks are completely overwhelmed. I'd love to be able to text my friends and family about the game.
I have linguistic peeves. 1) Why "utilize" when "use" is shorter? Because the writer is trying too hard to sound as if he knows his stuff. It displays insecurity.
2)"Impacts" as "affects." Learn affects vs. effects. "Impacts" is lazy.
