Mike Lantry, 1972
This will be a very deep draft this year, so glad my browns traded for a 3rd and a 4th next year.
Am I the only one that finds Roby undisciplined? The impression I got from him, and from OSU fans, was that he never saw a route he didn't bite on. He had a ton of pass break-ups and INTs, but I kind of got the impression that as more because the B1G had an absolute wreckage of passing offenses this year. Dunno, maybe I'm wrong.
I think Roby came back to school to work on that, but he has all the physical tools to be a top-15 pick.
Nix and Tuitt. If Lynch had not transferred, this projection would have had 3 ND DLs going in top 17. Sheesh.
Those same ND DLineman got gobbled up by Bama in the NC game. They were wise to go back to school so people didnt rip them apart like they did Te'o on his worst game ever.
He dominated Bama OL all by himself and was a load even for Warmack to block one on one. He put Barrett Jones on skates. He is a legit top 15 pick with his combination of size/strength/athleticism.
Clowney is a freak, but Lewan handled his ass all game. He made one play and it wasnt even Lewans fault.
I was such a huge Ken Dorsey fan. It was an irrational man-crush. I thought he was going to have a great career. Of course, I was in 7th grade, so....
Having said that, McCarron is a much better pro prospect. He reminds me of Sam Bradford: not the ideal, Manning/Luck 1st round pick, but good enough to win super bowls in the right system-- and if you give him protection.
I was going to throw out a comparison to Andy Dalton.
Off topic but I was happy to see quite a few San Deigo St players get drafted. I know Hoke can't recuit and can't judge talent but: Round 2 Gavin Escobar, Round 3 Leon McFadden, Round 7 Brice Butler. Expecting alot more in the next few years with Michigan as the brand instead of SDS.
McCarron screams "heady" presence on the sideline but not a kdi who can lead a team without all of those weapons and that line. I mean, we've seen a muted return on Alabama RBs because (perhaps) that line is better than some understand at producing great seasons out of backs, and I've yet to see much with A.J. to disabuse the notion that he's not going to struggle in the NFL.
But we don't know how well he does against those NFL corners in practice.
Everybody knows Clowney will go #1. My questions is what would it take for you to trade away that pick? I don't think it happens, but many things I thought would never happen have. If you are a team that is Clowney away from winning the Super Bowl, do you bet the farm and then some?
But Teddy Bridgewater can make a case for it because he's a franchise type QB. Shredded a strong Florida defense. Was really impressed by Bridgewater
