More Wolverines is always a good thing.

Sure...better for injuries but we can make a list of Michigan draft busts not named Tom Brady and Charles Woodson.

At this point give me the small school guys. Look at the guys from Alabama and OSU they just seem to be broken down by the time they make the league. Used up too much wear and tear. Maybe those smaller school guys don’t get beat up in practice and tough competition over the years and are fresher.

Zeke, Ted Ginn, Micheal Thomas, Orlando Pace, Nick Mangold, Mike Nugent, and a couple dozen others beg to differ.

Stop making sense.  So funny reading the "don't take players from this school" posts.  As if these guys are genetically linked because they went to the same school.........or ARE they?  Hey, I like a good conspiracy theory!

 

BTW, you can add ol Cris Carter to that list.  He had a "pretty good" career.

Sure OSU and Alabama etc have lots of stars over the years...they put tons of guys in the league. I think we were all just saying we have been snake bitten with them. Kinda tongue in cheek....it’s a little disturbing though how many for us have had injury issues. Maybe because we take a ton of B1G school players being in the Midwest but it’s definitely getting old. That said I still wouldn’t turn down Chase Young or any top player from OSU...just we have terrible luck.

I’m pretty sure we all mean it as a joke...but some college coaches just seem to send used goods to the NFL. Take Alabama lineman and linebackers for example. Too often Saban gets all he can out of them and then they come to the league already used up physically it seems. Conspiracy maybe...but I can see where it comes from.

In fairness, likely has to do with the fact that the Big 10 and SEC are easily the most physical of the P5s. Also factor in that both schools get a good % of the 5 star guys that could end up starting early, putting more miles on the tread. 

 

Same concern with a guy like Taylor from Wiscy. Really hope the tires have miles left on them.

Got that, but as far as Malik, I think he only played for two years, and was never really injured at OSU.  
 

And I don’t think Parris ever missed a game in college.  Receivers aren’t like RBs or D players.  They’re not in a ton of plays where they’re getting smashed.  OSU usually has so many great WRs, they don’t have to feature one guy.  
 

Sometimes stuff happens, and it doesn’t matter where you played your college ball.

What's the common denominator of our two big injuries this week?

(Malik Hooker and Parris Campbell)

 

Every time we draft a Buckeye, they're cursed from day one.

 

Just sayin.

I have been a colt fan since 1975.  This is so true...From Art Schlichter -Anthony Gonzalez and Now Hooker and Campbell. This schools draft picks have never worked out in a colts uniform for the most part.

Actually, that was the concern with him coming into the league.  He was seen as fragile and that is probably why he slid to #15. Ballard took a chance and it didnt work out

Yep, torn ACL.

 

There were so many season-ending injuries to prominent players this past weekend. :(I believe that not having offseason practice may have contributed to some of these injuries we are seeing.

    • I look forward to seeing the changes on this list. He has almost ever tackle as an NFL right tackle so we will see how he changes on that. 
    • It has more to do with our scheme than with our players' specific strengths IMO. This scheme relies heavily on the LBs and safeties ability to rally to the ball when the pass is completed and not so much on sticking with the receiver and disrupting his ability to catch(this is part of the frustration with the scheme for me... we allow short passes to be completed on a whim and then rely on the secondary line of defense to get there and limit the damage). The length for our LBs serves multiple purposes not just in pass-defense - it is also useful keeping clean from blocks with long arm when in pursuit of a RB or a pass-catcher.   BTW 7 passes defended is not a little for a LB. For example - Bobby Wagner has 8, Fred Warner has 6... Demario Davis has 5... Lavonte David has 6... It's very much in line with all the best LBs in the league. 
    • That contract for Xavier Rhodes is a 1 year deal for 3 million? I mean that is funny. I think he might be looking for a lot more than that. Plus I would not be shocked if he gets at least a two year deal. 
    • What's up Colts fans. I'm a huge Lions fan and an even bigger Stafford fan. I pray that they get a deal done sending him to the Colts. The Lions wasted his early years but he's a straight up baller with a cannon. Stafford was nothing but amazing in the community and the locker room loves him. The Lions got the best QB that they've ever had and wasted him with head coaches like Jim Schwartz (a defensive coach) aka Jim Shorts as we call him, Jim Caldwell (need I digress?) and Matt Patricia (I would say that he's a defensive coach but he's garbage).   Stafford had to deal with garbage ever changing OC's, terrible HC's and a non existent running game. We didn't have a 100 yard rusher for a game that spanned almost 5 seasons. FIVE SEASONS!   Stafford is a perfect fit for Reich and I pray it gets done. He deserves a ring. Either way the Colts have put together a nice team and I wish you guys the best either way.
