|07/22/2018 - 10:29pm||This article is outdated…||
This article is outdated. Defense don't put their best pass rusher on the weakside, they move them all over and they even put their best pass rusher on the strongside because you want them in a favorable matchup. So you need strong pass protector on both side regardless. Look at the NFL, the best pass rushers are the ones lining up over RT like Von Miller, JJ Watt, Khalil Mack, Cam Jordan, Melvin Ingram, etc.
The biggest difference between LT and RT is the footwork and techniques. Everything you do at LT, you have to do the opposite. For example at LT, you have to push off from your inside foot aka right foot to get off the stance quickly. For RT, you have to do the opposite of it. Same with setting landmark whether if it's jumpset, 45 degree set or vertical set and use your techniques. It messes with your brain if you don't practice on both side. It's a matter of comfort left on stance, setting your landmark and use whatever techniques to block edge pass rushers.
|07/20/2018 - 9:20pm||West Michigan competition is…||
West Michigan competition is not good. GRCC played smaller schools and that is not good competition. I would be more impressed if GRCC played up D1 or D2 level of competition. The type of DE Mayfield face won't ever sniff college ball or play at NAIA/D3 level. Allendale is just an okay program and EGR wasn't good when GRCC played them when Mayfield was there. If it's EGR from the 00s, then it's a different story.
Compared to HS teams from Texas, Florida, California, Ohio, etc. They faced much better competition and gives them a better look at how a prospect compare to other prospects head to head. Mayfield hasn't faced anyone who is D1 caliber to compare to.
|07/20/2018 - 6:51pm||MSU returns 19 starters…||
MSU returns 19 starters including in an important position which is at QB. I don't see why it's crazy to have MSU ranked high. They won 10 games last season and returns just about everybody.
|07/20/2018 - 6:48pm||Are you confusing GRCC with…||
Are you confusing GRCC with DCC? Because DCC plays the best competition in the state while GRCC plays a bunch of nobodies with an occasional good team from their level, but never against D1, D2 or D3 teams. None of the teams they faced are on super 10 rankings.
|07/20/2018 - 3:40pm||I really don't give a shit…||
I really don't give a shit about OT height as much as I care more about their arm length (as long as it's over 33") and their ability to set the landmark coming off their stance. Both are far more important than height. He has a limited rep on pass set and one thing stood out to me is he doesn't always explode out of stance and needs to push out of his inside foot quickly. He can get away with it at HS because West Michigan competition sucks and he routinely faces DEs who are about 200-225 lbs.
|07/02/2018 - 3:50pm||Actually Drew Brees was…||
Actually Drew Brees was measured at 6.025' at the combine without shoes so he barely met the minimum height that NFL teams look for.
Russ Wilson is definitely 5'11" according to the combine.
Both are exception to the rule, not the norm. For every Brees/Wilson, there are ton of short QBs who didn't succeed in the NFL.
Since, we're talking about college football, it kind of doesn't matter.
|07/02/2018 - 12:23am||If they get Kwahi, that…||
If they get Kwahi, that means Ingram and Kuz are gone because they will be included in the trade.
|06/28/2018 - 12:46am||He's a GA meaning he'll…||
He's a GA meaning he'll finish his course work at OSU that he started as a 5th year transfer. He'll get tuition reimbursement and get coaching experience at a power 5 school. Nothing's wrong with it. He'll help out in practice, break down films, sit in coaches meeting, etc.
|06/22/2018 - 11:26pm||Yup, can't blame C-Webb for…||
Yup, can't blame C-Webb for the program crater. They could've recover nicely if they hired a good coach but they went out and got someone who is not qualified to be the head coach aka Brian Ellerbee. I don't blame Ellerbee for accepting the job because why wouldn't he? He never had a winning season at Loyola University at Maryland.
Tommy A was a nice guy who can never get over the hump into NCAA tourney. Recruited well but team never really mesh well.
Thank god they hired John Beilein because I shudder to think where the program is at without him.
|06/22/2018 - 11:16pm||Adam Silver is the best pro…||
Adam Silver is the best pro sports commish in the country by a wide, wide margin. It's not close. Silver gets NBA and their marketing
|06/21/2018 - 6:41pm||Contrary to the popular…||
Contrary to the popular opinion, Miles Bridges did get better and added more skills to his repertoire. The big problem is Izzo had Bridges, JJJ play up a position which muck up the spacing especially with Ward taking up the low block. I'm confused that you said that he's not uber athletic, he absolutely is uber-athletic. The problem is he has an average wingspan for his height which doesn't help.
He's just better off playing PF in the next level anyway.
|06/02/2018 - 9:09pm||Miles Bridges||
wingspan is kind of short for his height. Draymond's wingspan is 7' which is long for his size at allegeately 6'7". Draymond can bang down low against the C and defend the permieter.
Bridges is a small ball 4 but isn't the same type of player that Draymond is
|05/31/2018 - 11:11am||I don't think||
Watts and Carton would be in the same class. Watts is a PG and I believe that JB is recruiting him that way. It's a take for either PG whoever wants to commit first.
|05/30/2018 - 5:25pm||Purdue pretty much lose||
everybody and returns Edwards and Haarm and to some extent Eastern. Purdue is not going to be nearly as good as they were last season.
|05/30/2018 - 3:07pm||I don't see how Happ||
is going to be a pro C since he doesn't have a jump shot or even try to attempt 3 point shot. He really needs to expand on his shooting range or he won't be drafted next season.
|05/29/2018 - 6:30pm||He worked out at the combine and multiple teams||
He project as a bouncy athlete who can shoot. The only issue is what position is he in the next level? SG or PG. He doesn't have experience running the team as a PG. He has huge upside.
|05/29/2018 - 6:28pm||Matthews||
is getting feedback from NBA teams he worked out with and other NBA scouts as well. None of the prospects are relying on the internets to make their decision.
This is how DJ Wilson declared and stayed for the draft. There were ton of fans who blasted DJ for declaring when they said he was projected to get drafted at 2nd round or undrafted and yet, DJ got drafted at 1st round.
|05/29/2018 - 3:12pm||Tomorrow is the deadline||
so we'll hear about his status by then
|05/27/2018 - 11:10am||Cavs isn't going to beat||
either Warriors or the Rockets.
|05/27/2018 - 12:08am||So I take it that||
you don't like watching John Beilein offense because their offense is pretty much about 3 point shooting and layups.
NBA is basically all about spacing and shooting. 3s are worth far more than any other shots except wide open layups/dunks.
|05/24/2018 - 12:33pm||I'm not a fan of Casey||
his X's and O's isn't all that good and his in game coaching has been a problem in which both were exposed repeatedly in the playoff.
|05/14/2018 - 1:25am||The last play||
it was well covered by OSU except Jerome Baker for whatever reason stopped covering him and committed a cardinal sin of keeping his eyes on the backfield too long and spun around when he should be flipping his hips to the outside.
JOK led McKeon a bit too far. That was huge missed opportunity to score a TD right there
|05/11/2018 - 8:26pm||Dwayne Casey has done well in regular season||
but come playoff time, his lack of X's and O's and in-game coaching were exposed repeatedly.
I do give him credit for evolving his offensive system from last season to this season, but when it comes to crunch time, he failed which is why he was fired.
|05/10/2018 - 9:01pm||Disagree that Bama||
DL is better than OSU DL. OSU is better in terms of pass rush and they have just as many NFL players as Bama.
OSU defensive scheme is one gap while Bama is more of 2 gap scheme so they are more concentrated on stopping the run first. Bama doesn't have the pass rush prowness that OSU has like Hubbard, Lewis, Jones, Bosa and Young.
|05/09/2018 - 12:41am||Good QBs find ways to mitigate bad OL||
see Josh Rosen, Lamar Jackson, Sam Darnold, etc. All were 1st round picks despite having subpar OL play as whole. What they get around it is they're able to read and get the ball out quickly or have subtle movement within the pocket to buy extra time for the passing plays to develop.
Does it help to have great OL? Sure but QBs has to execute regardless.
|05/08/2018 - 3:24pm||Chris Brown (Smart Football)||
said that OSU offense is so explosive and efficient because they had so much talent and athleticism that they destroy teams but the offense never seem to flow as well as you think they would based on stats.
Their biggest passing struggles is mostly on JT Barrett and I've seen him hold onto ball too long because he's unsure of what he's seeing unless they're wide open. That's also a biggest problem with Denard. When OSU face against elite defense, they struggled because they need their passing game to get it going in which they couldn't under Barrett.
There is a reason why JT Barrett went undrafted.
|05/08/2018 - 2:25pm||Biggest problem with JT Barrett||
is he doesn't make throws on schedule and is a see it thrower instead of throwing with anticipation. JT is often a beat late on his reads which is why OSU fans are frustrated with him.
Yes, it's nice that he can run but OSU offense looks out of sorts in the last few seasons and JT is part of the reason why.
|05/07/2018 - 11:27pm||Stanford had a DT go top 5||
Solomon Thomas went #3 overall.
Truth is NFL will find you regardless.
|05/07/2018 - 4:56pm||Ole Miss WR #1||
AJ Brown is considered to be one of the top prospect for 2019 draft.
Also, I watched plenty of Ole Miss games and his backup Jordan Tam'au looked better than Patterson. The emergence of Tam'au is one of the bigger reason why Patterson decided to transferred out of Ole Miss. If he was entrenched as a starting QB, I bet he wouldn't transfer.
That being said, Tam'au struggled in the last two games of the season but otherwise, he was pretty strong in his debut season.
|05/07/2018 - 7:51am||His dunks||
made it look like he's playing on a lowered down hoop but it's not because he can jump and has long arms. I like this kid. He would be a nice get for Michigan as a jumbo wing.
|05/06/2018 - 9:12pm||Actually worst case||
for Rondo is he is completely disinterested in playing defense and isn't engaged as a player. When he's engaged, he's a problem defensively but that is far and few in between.
We don't have to worry about Z's lack of effort especially on defense .
|05/04/2018 - 1:02am||They didn't shut down when they hear about heart condition||
That happened at the combine which is months before the draft so they had time to digest the rumor and check on Mo's heart condition with their team doctors.
NFL has extensive background and medical checks on prospects which is the purpose of combine/pro days and team visit.
|05/04/2018 - 12:56am||He was cleared||
by the Lions team doctor, Rams team doctor and NOLA team doctor until NOLA detected a more serious heart condition. Fairley played about 6-7 years before he was forced to retire.
That's the biggest thing about Mo Hurst. It's the team doctors clearing him for football. Michigan/Harvard doctors matters little to them because NFL teams rely on them to clear players for activities.
|05/03/2018 - 9:05pm||B1G was trash as whole||
under Jim Tressell. NFL drafted players during Tressell era is proof enough that they weren't very good.
|05/03/2018 - 7:29pm||NFL people are pretty high||
on Dwayne Haskins. They believe that he has NFL future as a 1st rounder.
|05/03/2018 - 2:01pm||They get their opinions||
from their team doctors who also are medical experts.
|05/02/2018 - 10:13pm||Scottie Pippen||
gets hated on more than anybody but the year that MJ retired, Pippen took the Bulls team to 55-27 record and went to Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. He averaged 22 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 5.6 apg, 2.9 spg while shooting close to 50% as the #1 option and a defensive stopper. The next year, he averaged pretty much the same thing before MJ came back at the end of the season.
He deserved a spot on the Dream Team, no question.
|05/02/2018 - 9:52pm||AI||
carried a bad Sixers team to the NBA finals. If you look at the players, they had zero business being there. That's a testament to AI's ability to carry this team to the NBA Finals. He's a great individual talent but as a team player? Not so much
|05/02/2018 - 9:15pm||He's an exact carbon copy||
of his older brother, Joey Bosa with similar athleticism, hand usage and pass rush prowness. Bosa went top 5 and is one of the best DE in the league. He'll be fine
|05/02/2018 - 1:25pm||I don't think his mechanics needs an overhaul||
He has solid form. Just minor tweaks. He's pretty good in midrange.
Zavier's shooting form needs an overhaul. He has that hitch in his stroke.
|05/02/2018 - 1:16pm||Except||
they don't run Tampa 2 anymore. That was phased out.
|05/02/2018 - 1:15pm||Nope||
a lot of draft insiders and scouts thinks Walter Football is a joke and a hack.
|05/02/2018 - 9:19am||I would not use Walter Football||
as draft source since it's the worst one out there and he is a hack with make up sources.
|05/01/2018 - 6:09pm||NFL||
do like CBs who can make plays when the ball is in the air, but they strongly prefer CBs who can stay in WRs hip pockets. Denzel Ward is a great example of it. Same with Jaire Alexander, Mike Hughes.
Josh Jackson was among the top in the country in INTs but he went 2nd round due to his coverage inconsistencies and there's question of him, is he better off as a CB in Cover 3 scheme heavy or FS.
If you look at 2017 NFL Draft, Marshon Lattimore got 4 INTs but he was the first CB drafted due to his cover skills. Same with Marlon Humphrey. Lattimore is considered to be among the best CB in the league and Humphrey had a strong rookie year.
Hell look at Jalen Ramsey. He was a FS/CB at FSU and had 3 career INTs. He was the first CB taken in the draft. Now, he's one of the best CB in the league.
Being able to catch the ball is a bonus but NFL value CBs who can stay in WRs hip pocket and can trail more than just pure playmaker. If they can get both, it's a huge bonus and they would be taken at top 5.
|05/01/2018 - 5:29pm||I still get chills||
seeing Jordan Poole's game winning buzzer beater shot. What a fantastic run to the NC game. What an enjoyable month of March beginning with the domination of B1G Tourney.
|05/01/2018 - 2:38pm||Denzel Ward was going to be picked at top 10 no||
|04/28/2018 - 5:09pm||Also,||
You really think not every team medical doctors didn’t have a chance to evaluate Hurst? They did this at the combine and pro day or team visit. Your ignorance is showing big time because you clearly don’t know how NFL operates
|04/28/2018 - 5:07pm||I used to work in the nfl||
So I’m not full of shit. You’re just hoping that they believe every rumor. They trust their team doctors over rumor.
|04/28/2018 - 9:59am||FWIW||
Mo Hurst's heart condition is similar to Nick Fairley who played but his career ended last off-season when the team doctor discovered that it was too big for him to continue to play. He was cleared to play for a few years.
Nick Fairley also got medially red flagged in pre-draft (plus got red flagged for other reasons). The Lions team doctors said he would be fine for a few seasons but may have big problem down the road. It was good enough for Martin Mayhew when he drafted him. There was a reason why he fell to the Lions.
|04/28/2018 - 9:57am||Dude||
stop talking, you have no idea how NFL team operates. They don't care about other team doctor. If they say he's fine, they will have him on the board regardless of the rumor. I've seen prospects with big time medical red flags that he was off some of the team's big board but was still drafted because he was cleared by the team doctors.
Team doctors only matters to the NFL team, not the rumor or Michigan/Harvard doctors.
