Now that’s a blast from the last.
Stop making shit up celemo.
If the dude beat out Morgan as a freshman, where's he transferring to, the old folks home?
We need a new QB. The last guy broke a hip.
The NFL early entry dates this year are 1/17/22 to declare and 1/20/22 to withdraw, with a final list on 1/22.
It’s very early and only 9 have declared nationally.
The Big Ten has two, WR David Bell and DE George Karlaftis both of Purdue.
At Ohio State, everyone assumes that WR Garret Wilson and LT Nicholas Petit-Frere are gone. CB Cam Brown walked on senior day, but he’s out of his mind to go early if he declares. We’re also waiting on RT Dawand Jones and DE Zach Harrison, both of whom should stay.
Ojabo is most likely gone, especially if he's getting 1st round grades
Dax Hill ( see above)
Other than that, I have no clue if anyone else will declare early but it should be worth noting every year UM loses a guy who really should've stayed another year
Mel Kiper yesterday has Ojabo #9 overall and the #1 OLB; if he’s close to that then he’s gone. He had Hill the #2 Safety. I suspect especially given UM’s depth at safety and no-depth at nickel has moved him out of position, that Hill will bounce.
DT Damion Daniels and CB Cam Taylor-Britt each declared for the draft with a year of eligibility remaining, but it’s just the extra covid year so maybe they don’t count (each played in 4 seasons at Nebraska).
C Cam Jurgens is also expected to declare with 2 years eligibility remaining (but has been in the program 4 years).
Edit: maybe Daniels hasn’t made it official, but it’s widely expected.
I'm a little surprised that Hill is so highly thought of at the moment. Don't get me wrong...he looked like Ed Reed in comparison to what the Buckeyes threw out there this year, but he still didn't look first round level to me at least.
he's a guy that's amazing in the short passing game and run support but he's prone to getting burned deep. I would love for him to stay another year for greedy reasons.
Tend to agree, but also think he's a victim of his own versatility, as Anison referenced.
If he came back and was able to play his NFL position, he could position himself as the top safety on the board, but who knows where that lands him next year vs this year. I don't think he's Kyle Hamilton, regardless.
I would have thought NPF and Dawand would rather play in league that doesn't have Hutch and Ojabo for as long as possible.
Pretty much this. He’s not playing his NFL role (nor his ideal college one) because UM has no depth at nickel. I don’t think that would change next season either; our best young DBs are safeties not nickels.
Seems like Jones is a pretty big piece for OSU.
Harrison kind of seems like someone who shouldn't go, but OSU fans might prefer he did to get other people snaps. Am I wrong there?
If Dawand Jones leaves, then we have no heir apparent at RT. Paris Johnson will slide to LT in 2022 and played out of position at G in 2021. Otherwise, it’s all interior guys.
It’s the potential weak link in what should be a phenomenal offense.
Harrison is an athletic freak who hasnt shown more than periodic glimpses of becoming an NFL DE. The true freshmen DEs JTT and Sawyer are the real deal. Harrison may leave simply because they likely will beat him out.
bad news for #Penn State Nittany Lions
24 years old. He's on the Tommy Callahan plan I guess.
They’re called Doctors
I saw somebody say Bell was their #10 ranked WR after he announced. Is the class that deep? I have no context of who else is in the draft at WR or what his specific measurable are but watching him, he seems like 1-2 rounder to me.
As a PSU fan, this pleases me.
Dude is no worse than a 2nd rounder, Iowa made him look like a All-Pro for 3 straight years.
He's the next Pickett. Put your money on him for the Heisman next year!
I'd have him higher than 10th, but it is a pretty deep class and he should go late 1st or early 2nd. I'd think Wilson and Olave go ahead of him (though I think Bell vs. Olave is debatable), same with Burks from Arkansas and London from USC (even with the injury). Williams from Alabama, Dotson from Penn St., and Pickens from UGA will probably be up there as well.
Bell probably should be in the 4-7 range for WR's, but the top 8 is a pretty strong group overall, even if there isn't anyone that is likely on the level of a JaMarr Chase.
can he beat out Allar
I think Olave and Wilson both go higher, but I’m biased and Bell didn’t really hurt us.
No idea who else is there.
With the style of offenses in CFB I believe most classes with be loaded with WRs. This class is very good. IMHO Burk, Wilson, Bell, Williams are the best. But you have another group that includes Olave, Dotson, Pickens, London, Metchie that should go in the first couple of rounds. And a few others who will slide into day three that are super interesting in Wan'dale, Flowers, Doubs, Shakir, Jones Jr,
If Olave runs a great 40 time, then he’s going to move into the top half of the first round. His route running and hands are excellent and he has NFL size.
He supposedly has a 4.38.
Tyler Goodson just announced he’s declaring for the draft and will not play in the citrus bowl. Don’t see him being any higher than a late 3rd rounder. Our ppg will now go down 11.6.
Taking his "dancing around and get tackled for a loss" abilities to the next level. Oh whatever will we do?
It comes off like you are upset or annoyed that he is leaving. Which is a weird thing to be bothered by. Just trying to make a career.
Olave looks skinny af to me
but he is 15lbs heavier than DeVonta Smith (per google)
It would probably be in his best interest to come back tbqh. Run behind a line with more experience. RBs are a dime a dozen these days. Don't see him getting drafted. Good luck to the young man.
The kid with 530+ carries in 3 years is ready to earn money to get hit!?
Brian Ferentz making $860K for the past 5 years to scheme this up
Wrong, Rb goes to 3 hole.
Setting the bar low in here I see.
Yea, really excited to lose a RB who gained over 1,000 yards with an awful playcaller and not great OL. Only player on offense that was an actual threat outside of the Center lol. Dude was a baller and hate to see him go.
He doesn’t have to. He’s anointed.
He's one of the two OL that was deciding whether to take the extra year or not. Still waiting to hear from Andries, who is the other one.
PFF graded him the 2nd best Center in the conference and he was our highest rated OL. (Andries was #2). Both over 80 in run blocking.
Leaving ESPN entirely seems like a bad idea. ESPN is still the biggest CFB media brand and you're just asking for them to shut you out by walking away, and that seems like an especially bad deal for basketball if you're stuck putting all your mid-week games on FS1 and BTN.
It will be a miracle if Warren doesn't fuck this up.
Is that prediction for both sports or just football. Moving entirely off ESPN isn't a great idea for football, but it's an absolutely horrible deal for basketball.
I’m at the point of saying fuck you to ESPN in general. Their product quality has declined so much.
