Too early?  Hey it's NEVER too early.  Who are some of the guys we should be looking at for next year?  One guy I'm intrigued by and will be watching closely is Trey Lance from NDSU.  I know we drafted Eason, but you never know and I just can't see Brissett staying and making all that money to be a backup.

 

Who are some top guys we should be watching this season?

The OT position is pretty deep next year. Penei Sewell is a generational tackle that is better than anybody in the 2020 draft class.

 

I'm keeping an eye on Walker Little, Sam Cosmi, Alex Leatherwood, and Jalen Mayfield at the position as well.

OT

 

-I forget his name but there is some huge OT from Oregon who I’ve heard is a 1st round lock.

-Walker Little from Stanford. Could’ve came out but had a knee injury.

 

At DB:

-Paulson Adebo from Stanford. He was in 1st round mocks before he decided to stay. Good decision as some of the WRs that just got drafted had some wins against him.

 

-Hamsah Nasirldeen, SS from Florida State. Loved this guy. Physical downhill player who I also liked in coverage. I think he would have been the top safety in this years class had he come out.


At DT:

-Marvin Wilson from Florida State. Just go watch the tape.

 

Thats all I have for guys we should be watching, seeing as how we probably shouldn’t have needs at WR and RB now. Plus we already know about the QBs if you still think that’ll be a need.

QB - I posted in the Qb thread about Trey Lance. Also will be watching Jamie Newman, Brock Purdy, Kj Costello. As a Canes fan very excited to see D’Eriq King. 

TE - really good class at the top - Brevin Jordan Miami, Pat Freirmuth Penn st, Kyle Pitts FL

 

OT - Looks like a strong class. Top Gus like Sewell will be gone. OT Trey Smith TN is one to watch
 

Wr  - Devonta Smith. There a ton of wrs again but really like his game

 

RB - not really a need but Travis Etiene & Chuba hubbard

 

DT Marvin Wilson

 

DE Greg Rousseau Miami - played Wr/S in HS. 6’6 260 and extremely long. Finished strong last year with 15.5 sacks

 

LB - Micah Parsons Penn st - super talented and athletic

I'd love for us to be able to draft a high end talent at EDGE.

 

It's so hard to get one of those after the first round.

 

OT, CB and move TE are the other positions worth keeping an eye out for. It supposed to be a good TE draft next year.

Ya unless im mistake Pittman destroyed him in that USC Stanford game last year. In talking about Adebo he was horrible against Pittman.

I continue to reiterate that mantra and I apologize if it becomes tiring at some point - until we have a long-term franchise QB on the roster, acquiring one should be priority no. 1 and thus this will be my priority next season unless Eason is forced to play and looks awesome.

 

Secondary positions we might need to watch

-OT(successor to AC to get in the building and develop before he has to play in 2022)

-CB - I still think we are not set enough at the position unless some(actually most) of the youngsters show good play this coming season

-TE... 

-OC? It's kind of interesting that Kelly has not yet been extended and he will play on his 5th year option this coming season. I'm not sure Ballard wants to pay him long-term?

-WR - Depending on what happens with TY and the youth at the position, we might need to invest yet again at WR. I also hear the draft is pretty good at WR again.

This is a good point. I think Ballard wants to make sure he can stay healthy before paying him. I think Ballard sees that Kelly is solid and wants to keep the OL together but you have to make sure he can stay healthy first.

Alex Leatherwood (OT Alabama) - Could've came out and declared but returned for his senior season. This is going to be another good offensive lineman class in 2021. 

 

Gregory Rousseau  (DE Miami) - Only trailed Chase Young with 15.5 sacks in 2019. Had he'd been eligible, he would've been a top 10 pick. 

 

Israel Mukuamu (CB South Carolina) - Dude is listed at 6"4 205 and is a CB. With that height and size, I'm going to say he's going to be an Isaiah Simmons prototype player who can play all over the defense. 

 

Then you have guys like Little, Sewell, and Jamar Chase, who are projected to be top 10 picks. Micah Parsons, Joe Tyron, Devonte Smith, Cosmi, Mays, and Trey Smith all possibilities.

Getting another dominant DT next to Buckner for the future sure would be nice! Ballard wants a DL similar to the 49ers!

As far as my Buckeyes go, if you want interior offensive linemen, both Josh Myers and Wyatt Davis will be eligible. I don't know if either or both will declare, but I've been watching my Bucks for over 45 years now, and that is THE BEST center-guard combo I've ever seen line up together in all that time. And yes, I know EXACTLY what that is saying.

 

Those guys absolutely MAUL every defender they face. Doesn't matter who it is, either. It's almost comical most of the time watching defenders try to get past either one of them. I'm going to be banging the drum loudly for those two super-studs come this time next year should they declare.

Most of the talent in the 2021 draft class will be offensive. There are some great blue chip offensive linemen, WR’s, and arguably the best TE to come out of college since Gronk. 

 

OT Penei Sewell, 6’6 325 Top 3 pick

OT Walker Little, 6’7 315 lbs Top 5 pick

OT Samuel Cosmi, 6’7 310 lbs Top 10 

WR Ja’marr Chase, 6’1 200 lbs Top 5

WR Justyn Ross, 6’4 205 lbs Top 10

WR Jaylen Waddle 5’11, 185 lbs Top 15

WR Devonta Smith 6’ 1 185 lbs Top 20

TE Pat Freiermuth, 6’5 260 lbs Top 25

I personally like Chase at WR, Sewell at OT, or Rousseau at DE for this team next year, in addition to Lance at QB.  Hopefully none of them will be available though, which means the Colts had a pretty good year.

Well, he will have to b picking in the top 10 or lower for a couple more years if that's  his goal. Just being a smart ...!

This guy is going to be a steal if he fall to the third round or lower:

 

Tamorrion Terry WR Florida State:

 

He's big, very fast and physical. He needs to get more consistent, but he has another year..

His name is Carter O'Donnell, and yes he is going to make this team IMO.

    • I get they're from one of the biggest TV markets in the country, but you knew that game was going to be a non-competitive snoozefest before it even started. I generally watch every Sunday Night game available, but I can tell you that both Sunday Night games that I largely tuned out of involved Packers-Bears contests (I wanna say there was a game in 2013 or 2014 where the Packers dropped 50+ on the Bears on Sunday Night and you could feel it was going to happen before the game even started).
    • I apologize for today guys. At least you whipped them the first time you played them in Tennessee but lost at home. I have a feeling the Titans are going to whip us when we see them just after Christmas.
    • Question for you and those who LOL with your post. How long have you been following football to ask a juvenile question? Is that even a question to ponder?   I'f I go through the list of South Florida talent, we would need to start a separate website, yes website never mind thread.   Coaches along: Jimmy Johnson, Dave Wanstedt, Pagano, just to name a few. Lets not start with players. On this current team, players not named Marlon Mack or TY Hilton, Anthony Walker, Jacoby Brissett, Al Qudin Muhammad, Xavier Rhodes (Norland High School is less than 20 mins away).   I actually take offense to your question. But to no avail, here is your answer: The Hurricanes hold the record for most players selected in the first round in a single draft (6, in 2004), most first-round draft picks in a two-year period (10, from 2003 to 2004), most first-round draft picks in a three-year period (15, from 2002 through 2004), and most first-round picks in a four-year period (19, from 2001 through 2004). As of the 2015 NFL season, UM has 45 players on NFL rosters, including players on NFL Practice Squads and Injured Reserves and not including current Free Agents, which is the most out of any NCAA program in the nation. As of the 2016 NFL Draft, Miami now has had at least one NFL draft pick in every draft since 1975, each of the last 42 NFL drafts, one of the longest streaks among FBS programs. The Hurricanes once had a streak of 149 consecutive regular season weeks where a former Hurricane scored a touchdown in an NFL game; the streak started in Week 15 of the 2002 NFL regular season and ended in Week 11 of the 2011 season.During the streak, 33 different former Hurricanes scored touchdowns and a total of 661 touchdowns were scored. From the 2001 Miami Hurricanes football team alone, 42 players went on to be drafted into the NFL from (2002-2006), including 17 1st round picks. The Hurricanes have had at least one former player make the Pro Bowl every season since 1985, 31 years in a row.
    • The game wasn't exactly a shock due to the missing players, but some of the themes were not what I expected, how about you guys?    Reason's the game was lost and what's next:  --------------------------------- 1. Rock Ya Sin.  I think Rock is starting to look more like a Draft miss than hit.  They often refer to his wrestling career, and that is never good because it usually comes after a Defensive Hold or Interference.  He really put us in a bind with his first penalty, and drove a stake in our heart when we had them stopped but they got the ball back for a later TD, and arguments could be made it costs us 14 points because it so deflated our team we went into a tailspin and gave up that ridiculous 4th down play setting up the 5th TD.     2. Loss of poise.  I saw several things, but that horrendous punching and disqualification was so deflating to the teams loss of poise in performance that I wouldn't be disappointed to learn they cut him from the team, though I doubt they have the b*lls.  There should be a near zero tolerance for a role player special teamer to lose his cool that egregiously and cost the team at such a critical time.     3. Loss of AC/Poor O-Line Depth may be a fatal blow to any post season success.  We have a long long history of failure without our most important lineman.  Even though he isn't what he once was (and it has been clear to me he's playing hurt as much as simple decline has kicked in) the drop off is so dire after him that I think only with significant shuffling can we keep Rivers upright and healthy and have any chance to run an offense not always in crises.  With a poor LT, Rivers one glaring weakness, immobility is amplified 10X.  I will say his quick release saved as many sacks as Mahommes could have scrambled out of, but the difference is he can't possibly complete meaningful attacks with so little time or free space to launch it to an open receiver.  Frankly his performance under that pressure was the most impressive performance I have seen from him all year.  But heroic sack saving isn't effective offense.  This lack o-line  depth has been something MANY here have been pointing not only all season and pre season, but literally going back to last season as well.  And we had MUCH better depth last year than this.  It was my #1 concern entering the season.  It was obvious.  A brilliant GM keeps making this same error.  He admitted his failure to secure a quality O-Line his first year (after many had begged the previous GM to do the same, and I believe that is truly what cost him his job, or at least deserved to).     Things that were hopeful: ------------------------------ 1.   Hines has proven to be a warrior.  He's our most important and reliable offensive weapon, much like the pass catching RBs of River's SD teams.  We should never see another game without him being a key contributor, no different than TN using their RB to do the same.   Everyone knew Hines was the only thing working, but he kept working nonetheless.  Reich needs to stop abandoning our key offensive weapon.  I even loved when they sent him deep.  I think HE could be used much like TY used to be, leading to...   2. TY Hilton FINALLY utilized by Reich and Rivers.  TY still has tremendous value.  We were reminded of that finally.  He still has moves, he can still contribute.  Sure, he's not 24 years old anymore, but he is likely our second best weapon after Hines still.  But Rivers simply has no chemistry with him.  All game he was forcing throws to Pascal, who I like, but they had Pascal 100% locked down.  The few catches he made were 50-50 balls.     3.  We saw evidence that our TE's are capable.  Why don't we use them, and use them often?  A three headed monster that should be dominating.  I think for us to have success down the stretch, in addition to using Hilton and Hines, our 3 capable TE's need to be all over the place on short to medium routes using their size and capable hands.  We saw late (too late sadly) that they were playing.  It was almost like they weren't through 3 quarters.  Sure, TN had backed up coverage, but dang, those guys have skills and can be hit quickly.     4. Brissett has been used well in short yardage.  I am glad they are building on this.  Even his relative slowness, he looks like a lightning bolt compared to Rivers.  I do think they need to show some short yardage passing so they keep defenses honest helping his future sneaks.     5. Pinter was serviceable compared to LT options.  I hope our center comes back and finishes the season, but Pinter at least showed a little depth at G/C.     What to do in the future now that winning the division is reasonably out of reach; ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. The line woes will continue to be a problem.  Depth is simply unacceptable.  I think if AC is lost for the season that we need to rethink positions, such as whether Smith could move to LT and perhaps use Pinter at RT?  I know he has "short arms" for Pro T play, but he has to be better than the other options.  I think they should strongly alter our game plans to account for lesser line e play.  Rivers didn't have time to let route develop, and with no mobility, they are going to have to improve our tepid screen play and conduct more short routes for multiple TE's in 2 TE sets.  Rivers has to be able to get the ball out quick.  I do think the play calling the past 4 weeks had improved, but something happened this game and we were just too limited until late in the game when they were hitting TEs and TY.   More please.     2. Our D should get back in line with the return of the Covid players.  I like the second half adjustments the D is making but why aren't we making these adjustments in the first half.  35 points is too much and the penalties are devastating.  Is it time to play Carrie instead of Ya Sin?  I think they should seriously consider demoting him for back ups.  He's just too much of a liability.  Perhaps if he came in off the bench we could get off the field more often in the first half.     What did you all think? 
    • I don’t mean to offend, but.....   The population of Buffalo is roughly 255,000.   The population of Chicago is roughly 2.66 million.   Our nation’s third largest city.  Plus, they were playing Green Bay, a team that historically gets good TV ratings even though it is much smaller than Buffalo.  It’s the smallest city to have a major sports franchise.  TV ratings are, in part,  why Indianapolis doesn’t get many National games unless they have someone like Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.    It’s not just about the win-loss records.
