247 rank watching is hazardous to any fans health, it's best to view our new signees and celebrate them joining the Buckeye brotherhood, all will be good with the world and these rankings will be a thing of past once they hit the field and show us why they were recruited and signed with the best university in the world.
On Rivals new 2020 rankings I counted eight 5-star kids Ohio State has a legit chance in landing. That's crazy.
Probably because of Oklahoma State's win over West Virginia
I love how they have the 2001 Miami team as 3rd on the list and don't realize a lot of those players were still on the 2002 Miami team, which the so-called "worst" title-winning team beat in double OT, but whatever I guess.
What I find amazing is the consistent success of recruiting under Urban Meyer and it has led some in the fanbase into thinking anything outside the top 2 in team rankings is a failure, especially the stargazers and their "only a 3-star" reaction to some recruits. Its all about how you see the strength of each class, with this year's WR haul (including Jeremy Ruckert) and next year getting Jack Miller along with the offensive line recruiting allows for the perfect storm in having unbelievable weapons for the next 4 to 5 years. Truly exciting years for the Buckeye fanbase.
Even if LSU is in the SEC compared to the AAC for Cincinnati. I wouldn't touch that program when it comes to the QB position.
No. 33 - Derrius Guice, RB, LSU (Alt Pick - Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan)
No. 35 - Connor Williams, OT, Texas (Alt Pick - Derrius Guice, RB, LSU)
No. 64 - Tim Settle, DT, Virginia (Alt Pick - Brian O'Neill, OT, Pittsburgh)
I know I'm most likely going to be completely wrong, but this would be my ideal 2nd round for the Browns.
No doubt, just disgusting.
Mods, delete this post. Tony Gerdeman's twitter message posted above.
If Guice is sitting there, I would prefer him over Michal. The first round of this mock draft is spot-on for me, Darnold and Chubb would add fantastic players to both offense and defense. With Joe Thomas retiring the Browns should use one of their three 2nd round picks on the OT position, I'm biased toward Jamacro Jones in the late 2nd round (32nd pick) with Isaiah Oliver over Josh Jackson for me. If I were to do a mock draft at the moment, it would be...
Sam Darnold, QB (1-1)
Bradley Chubb, DE (1-4)
Derrius Guice, RB (2-1)
Isaiah Oliver, CB (2-3)
Jamarco Jones, OT (2-32)
Hopefully, they can be redesigned with a traditional, yet sleeker look.
