Prospect Reviews: Oklahoma Vs. Missouri


Recommended Posts

Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma, 6'4" 230 lbs...this is who I was primarily watching. Needs to step into his throws more. Threw off his back foot early which lead to a pretty grossly under-thrown ball that was picked off. When he does step fully into his throws he is incredibly accurate. Looks to have a very strong arm. At first I thought he seemed to have accuracy issues throwing to his left, but as the game went on I think this had more to do with one of his starting WR's missing the game due to injury so having a new starter at WR on that side I think was a big part of the problem. He did make one terrible decision under pressure and threw an easy pick. He should have just thrown the ball away. He did come back after the interception and played very well, so the INT didn't bother affect his play as the game went on.

#85 Ryan Broyles WR, Oklahoma 5'10 188 lbs #64 overall - Very solid WR. Good hands, great routes and great speed. One draft site I read compared him to Wes Welker with better top-end speed. The same site predicted Broyles will be the best slot WR available. I have a feeling if teams pigeon hole him as a slot WR only then he may fall in the draft. Right now he's projected as a 3rd round pick I believe. He's also a pretty good punt returner. Could be a good pickup at the top of the fourth round if he's there but not sure I'd take him any higher than that considering our other needs.

#32 Jamell Fleming CB Oklahoma 5'11 192 lbs #169 overall - appears to be a very good cover corner, especially in man coverage. However on running plays he didn't show much interest in trying to get off the block of the WR to try to make a play. In fact I think one time he actually pulled a blocker in front of him so he wouldn't have to make the tackle...and I'm not joking about that. lol This could very well be something that would make the Colts avoid him.

    • Actually a good thread.   I feel better about this offense than I did with Luck.  Luck was amazing but I never really felt comfortable.  Wentz I feel comfortable with when he isn't panicking and playing "hero ball," and having JT/Pittman (and even TY while healthy) means we can stay in any game from an offense standpoint.   I think we're a few pieces on defense, and another year of experience for our young pass rushers, away from making a playoff run.  IF we can get another good CB and healthy safeties (or an upgrade) I feel we'll be in a much better place.  Not having the 1st round pick will suck but Wentz at this point is worth it, there's only a handful of QB's I'd rather have right now, and they'd go for way more draft capital than Wentz did.
    • To not draw conclusions that weren’t there to be drawn, but it’s ok, I understand how it could happen on here.   Being critical of his gross neglect of the running game in the 3rd quarter, his questionable play calling, and his in game decision making didn’t mean I want him gone. This isn’t the first time we’ve this from us teams. It’s kind of a pattern now, no?   I thought his 2nd quarter was brilliant and have said so. The concepts he was incorporating had the D guessing, they were almost unstoppable.  It’s why I just cannot fathom abandoning it in the 3rd quarter.    I also cannot understand how he can sit up there and say he thought the team executed well in the 3rd quarter and then admit to not being able to beat playoff teams, admit to the costly turnovers, etc.    I also chuckled at a comment in his presser today, at the end. He says in the 4th quarter, on the scoring drive….they were showing a stacked box and then bailing out…that’s why the runs worked (even admitted JT and the line just made some good plays when they didn’t bail out to play pass) but how did they get to a run play if they were showing a stacked box? They were showing stacked boxes in the 3rd quarter and not 1 run. The results of the plays in the game speak for themselves, he can say whatever he wants.   overall I like Frank the head coach. Frank the play caller leaves a lot to be desired though, IMO.  Also, it’s amusing how folks on here cling to clips of presser or things he says that fit their narrative, but then use lines like I guess we should have scored 45….Frank admitted he knew going in it would take mid-high 30’s. He admitted he was already considering abandoning the run before the game started. I don’t know how the 1st quarter could have been any indication one way or the other of how the O was going to be…the pass was just as bad, which he also admitted. But he wa willing to give it time, just not the MVP candidate.   The fact he felt compelled to break it down today, although I do appreciate it, makes me think he was taking heat on it internally. I believe he was looking for a reason to pass more and as soon as they shut the run down on the opening series his mind was made up.   I’ll end with this, he more less said that Todd Bowls is better at his job than he is at his. D’s just get so creative with their run blitzes he doesn’t know how to counter it….good gravy. Since when it is a bad thing to have a stud player that D’s scheme against. Very concerning comments from our head coach and play caller, again just my opinion.  
    • Not since the Manning and Luck days have I felt like we have had an offense that can go toe-to-toe with the best even if we have fallen short at times. Looking at the overall picture, the future is definitely bright on the offensive side. NFL teams don't stagnate, they constantly evolve and hopefully we can evolve with a few key pieces on offense and defense that will keep us knocking on the SB contender door. Right now, we are a division contender at best based on the talent level.    The Wentz trade, not many franchise QBs (till Mac Jones came around) have been obtained around the mid-teens, which would be the worst of where we could possibly pick, IMO. Heck of a trade overall for the Colts for stability for a decade, hopefully. Keep him protected and he will last, Wentz that is.    
    • I don't think we run the table but because of our schedule I do see 10-7. Here are remaining games: Texans = win IMO Vs Pats = that is the big one at Cards = loss vs Raiders = win at Jags = win Can we beat the Pats at LOS is the key?
    • The best strategy against them is to score more points. And the best way to do that is to pass when you don't have an elite defense, that's why Peyton's biggest rival was New England and Tom Brady, not the run dominant elite defense and running game of the Ravens or Jags. Also, you can burn clock with pass plays as well by going on methodical drives just like the Colts were doing before the trip sack.    And quit talking about JT like RB's can take over the game like a QB. It is silly. Running backs are largely successful because of their O line, and the Oline wasn't enabling JT to run early in the game, which is why the offense was stagnant. He isn't going to win the MVP and he shouldn't.
