    They are smallish, not smurf but they aren't that stout.  Certainly a top 20 talent for teams that need that player.  But both seem best suited as a replacement for TY, which I think is too soon for that.


    There are always smallish fast guys coming out of the drafts.


    They are both ~6'2 at 195'ish. Ceedee looks like he's closer to 200. Regardless, when does a kids weight mean ANYTHING when it comes to talent and producing? They are 19/20 year-old kids, they aren't done growing, and will get bigger if the choose to..

    I don't even like either WR, so I wouldn't pick either even if they dropped to our third rounder.


    I personally don't want a receiver in round 1 this year, but if Luck were still QB it would be intriguing. They are top-20 NFL talent for a reason, opinions aside..

    How much of Mahomes hype was because he had a famous father. Not that he wasn’t good but I am sure that might be part of why he got more attention.


    I'm pretty sure MOST people had no idea Mahomes father was a MLB pitcher until it was said when he was drafted. The kid had serious arm talent in both baseball and football, and that's what caught the "professionals" attention.

    The Titans are playing the best football in the AFC South. I think they win the division. 


    I thought to myself last year, when they picked up Tannehil, if he gets his chance over Mariotta that Tennessee team will be much better. I don't think Tannehil is a top-10 guy, but given better than he had in Miami, he could be very serviceable. I agree, I think Tennessee could end up winning the division.

    I hope to god they dont spend anything to get broke down Cam Newton, that's a horrible move imo. I'm sure he's better than Brissett, but a lot of dudes are. I say either draft a guy or look for a better QB in FA. I really like Jalen Hurts with the way the league is moving towards mobile quarterbacks that can still throw, and he will be available with probably either of our 2nds, leaving us our 1st to improve another position. Something like 1-DT/OL 2a-Hurts 2b-WR 3-BPA of need 


    But he really can't. Don't let his play in the B12 fool you. He got ousted in Alabama because he couldn't pass, Alabama went full pro-style for Tua, and the rest was history for Jalen. He plays in a predominantly spread/first read offense, and if his running lanes aren't there right away, everything goes down hill for him. Mobile QB's help, but it's still a heavy pocket passing league, and I don't think many teams are going to rebuild their offensive schemes for this guy. He will more than likely have to adapt to a pro-style offense, and that's where I think his value drops off immensely. 


    LSU, like Georgia 2 years ago, is going to expose him IMO..

    I don't like Hurts. He's way too much like Brissett as a pocket passer and suffers the exact same drawbacks. With some of them he's even worse. He's slow isolating and eliminating reads, he locks onto receivers, he stares down receivers, he has trouble going through progressions. When he leaves the pocket he drops his eyes and becomes a runner. He's a good runner but he's not an elite runner(Lamar) and the collisions he has on some of his runs are scary. I have no idea how he will stay healthy if he continues to do that with stronger and faster defenders around him and he needs to continue to do it because he's not good enough in the pocket to drive a good offense. 


    IMO the team that drafts him needs to go 100% building around his strengths(running) and just pray that he doesn't get hurt. I personally wouldn't draft him. 


    He literally just learned how to throw the football this year. Alabama went to a  heavy pro-style offense for Tua, and that left Hurts WAY behind and out of Alabama. So, of course he's going to look good in a spread/first read type of offense and playing within the B12. If his first read is gone and he can't run, everything goes down hill in a hurry for him. LSU is going to expose Hurts pretty badly IMO. 


    Sure, people will point to Lamar for a comparison, but Lamar was GREAT for 3 years, and was already a good passer. However, I'm not sure how many teams will want to completely rebuild their offense to make him comfortable and make it as easy as possible for him to play QB in the NFL.


    I wouldn't draft Hurts with any of our late picks...

    I swear, it feels like Buckeye alumni paid off someone to avoid LSU or Clemson in the 2-3 bracket because they match up better against inferior passing teams. 

    I don’t believe the Buckeyes are #1 this year. They got elevated to #1 after a 28-17 unconvincing win vs Penn State, LSU had been #1 till then.


    OSU has more wins against top-25 opponents and a much larger margin of victory too.. LSU gave up over 30 points and 600 yards to an Ole Miss team who can't throw a football and 38 points to a 3 win Vanderbilt team. Ohio State is the more complete/dominant team...

    I'm getting to the point where I hope the Pacers trade Myles Turner so you guys can see just how far our defensive ratings tank and you see how big of a mistake it will be


    They aren't going to tank, and he can't play defense anyways. Sorry, but chasing down backside defenders and getting blocks from behind isn't defense. Lebron does the same %, and gets called out on it so Myles shouldn't be an exception to that either. He's not athletic enough to guard the good 4's and to damn light/soft to guard the good 5's, so where is he playing defense? His whole body of work is average. 18M/yr for an 11 and 6 guy? At least the Pacers got a bargain for paying Sabonis that price.

    when he goes to a team that lets him shoot 8 3s a game and continue being an elite rim protector against 90% of the league.


    He's not Durant. He has no business hanging out around the 3 pt line and taking "8 3s a game". I've mentioned numerous times, he has the ability to be a Garnett-type of player. The skill-set is there, but the soft * mentality is holding him WAY back. Until Myles lets his sack drop and he starts being the man among boys, he's going to continue being the same average Myles he's been the last 4 years. This is as good as it gets for him. He's literally the Jacoby Brissett of the Pacers.

    Yeah, the end of that game was ugly.  While the Pacers have a good record, they haven't really beaten any good teams.   They've beaten teams like Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, and Orlando.  This team is not as good as the record indicates.  There's a decent amount of talent on the roster, but the team is at the "good, but not great" level. 


    Two things that could help that change would be trading Turner, and firing Nate.  It's obviously not as easy as simply saying trade this guy and fire this guy because you have to get a good return on your trade with Turner and hire a better coach.  I don't know a lot about the head coaching candidates, but there are several guys who have been getting a lot of buzz, like Jay Wright and Jerry Stackhouse.  Larry Bird fired Vogel because "players tune a coach out after 3 years".  If that's the case, this should be McMillan's last season here.


    I really hated to see Brian Shaw go as an assistant. He'd be the first guy I'd look to for HC if he wanted it. 

  10. And the last 2 minutes of the game tonight was awful. Warren had the hot hand and he drives and turns the ball over. Shoot the ball, that's a routine 10 footer. Brogdon got dribble happy, and indecisive, which he does at times. Lamb also had turnovers that just can't happen in a close game, late, like that. AND that last inbounds play, that should have been a 5 second violation, was absolutely bad. 9 seconds and you're trying to inbound the ball to Myles? Come on Nate. Whoever drew up that play needs smacked on the head with the play board. That just can't happen...

    12.6 points and 6.3 rebounds in over 30 minutes of action per game so far this season for Turner.  Can they just trade him already while his value is still decently high?  He's so unbelievably soft


    I'd love to send him and a first, hell probably more, to NY for Julius Randle. The money is relatively close and we really need a strong 4 next to Sabonis.

    First off..... IT aint going to happen


    But .....  Imagine this defense with a terror off the edge.......  


    Chase Young plays both pass and run better than any defensive end I have ever seen out of college


    I have been wrong before (and I WILL be again... Im sure) 


    We have a lot of draft picks and fewer "holes" to fill


    But again.....  I highly doubt that a trigger would be pulled like this


    I can see CB trading out again, and picking up earlier, later picks









    It was a shame with the suspension as I really think he could have challenged Suggs sack record of 24. His strength and quickness/first step, for being 265lbs, is incredible. The kid will be the difference maker down the stretch for the Buckeyes. 


    Side note, as much as I like Hines, I think Dobbins would be the perfect fit for that role. Bigger and can handle 15-20 carries a game if anything were to happen to Mack.  I'd like to see the Colts find a way to snag him with one of their day 2 picks because I doubt he lasts much longer than that.
