According to multiple reports, the three-time national title-winning college football coach and the Jacksonville Jaguars are finalizing a deal. Meyer will be the next head coach of the AFC South franchise, according to multiple reports.

Meyer, 56, retired from college football after the 2018 season, turning over the Ohio State program to Ryan Day.

Now, he heads to the NFL level. Will Meyer be successful at the professional level? We’ve seen some notable college football greats try and fail at the NFL level. Others, like Jimmy Johnson and Pete Carroll, experienced major success.

What’s to expect of Urban Meyer in the NFL? Here’s how the NFL world is reacting to the news.

The biggest question with Urban (whether its an NFL job or another college job) is how long he stays? The endings to his time at Florida and Ohio State were...strange.

 

Also, i'm even more interested to see who they hire as the GM. We know the GM-coach relationship is so important but bringing in Urban to coach with his resume means he will have a lot more influence on the organization compared to most coaches. 

 

This could work out really well but also has the potential to be disaster.

With Trevor Lawrence in tow. Intriguing. He'll be tested but wouldn't surprise me to see him raise them to at least .500. The AFC South will be a beast next year.

 

Colts need to strap up.

College coaches usually don’t have the greatest success, but if anyone can do it Urban can. With Lawrence, these Jags may be tough to beat next year. We will have to play some tough talent with Watson, Henry, and probably Lawrence

I think Jags are going to shock the world and take Fields, whether that's at #1 or #2?

 

Might make Jets trade up to #1 to get Lawrence?

I would love it if they take Fields. Fields isn’t bad, don’t get me wrong, but watch OSU’s games against IU or Bama; Fields can be stopped, and he’ll have a harder time adjusting to the NFL I think.

 

I think the Jags are closer to competing than the Jets, so it would work for the Jets if they could get a plug-and-play guy like Lawrence

Im right there with you. Fields looked really bad in the NW game as well, I watched all 3 of those games.

 

I think Fields has a decent chance of busting and would love it if the Jags elected to make this move.

Every year we think it'll happen, how often does that #2 ever leap the #1?

Khan would overrule him I bet.

 

Skipping the consensus #1? Woof, that would take massive coconuts

Who doesn't?

 

I have seen multiple articles that bring up this possibility today.

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/urban-planner-does-meyers-arrival-with-jaguars-open-the-door-at-all-for-justin-fields-at-1-201638004.html

 

Urban Meyer had been part of the Fox Sports pre- and postgame shows for the Clemson-Ohio State CFP semifinal game on New Year’s Day, and by that point reports of his interest in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ head-coaching vacancy were hitting a rolling boil.

On one sideline was Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, the overwhelming favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft. On the other: Ohio State’s Justin Fields, coached by Meyer’s protege, Ryan Day, at a program Meyer reshaped into one of the sport’s unquestioned titans.

Oh, to crack inside Meyer’s head that night as he sat and watched Fields outplay Lawrence.

 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cincinnati.com/amp/4166324001

 

ESPN analysts Dan Orlovsky, Keyshawn Johnson and Marcus Spears debated Thursday on NFL Live whether the Jacksonville Jaguars' hiring of former Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer - which became official Thursday night - changes the likelihood that the team will select Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the top overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft instead of Buckeyes QB Justin Fields.

 

 

 

The 2nd article goes deeper into their debate.

 

Does it happen? Who knows but I think it is possible. Ryan Day connection is pretty big too.

The odds of the Jags not taking Lawrence are  less than zero.

The only question is will he be patient enough to see them turn the corner. If Lawrence is what people project him to be, it could work out well for them, but it's not going to be awesome next year.

If they get the right coaches in place they can turn things around pretty quick. They will have a lot of offensive pieces in place. They also have some good young defensive pieces. The cupboard isn’t bare down there. They have cap space and draft capital.

With urban, part of me wonders if theyll do the most Jags thing ever, select Fields over Trevor

I'm not sure about this one. Pete Carroll of course has had some success, and there's been some good coaches to cross over, but there's also been quite a few college coaches who have flamed out in the NFL as their message and style gets old with the players and administration fast. 

 

Success stories:

-Jimmy Johnson

-Pete Carroll

-Paul Brown

-Bill Walsh

-Tom Coughlin

-Dennis Green

 

The Bad:

-Lou Holtz

-Bobby Petrino

-Steve Spurrier

-Nick Saban

-Butch Davis

-Dennis Erickson

-Mike Riley

-Chip Kelly

 

John Harbaugh could probably fit into both lists depending on the context. I'm missing a lot more I know.

My feeling is this is more like the Gruden and Obrien situation. Meyers is gonna be the coach GM. Why else would they hire him first. Hes gonna get to make all the calls. Will be interesting to see how this works.

There is a good foundation. DJ Chark is a baller reciever to help out Lawrence. They would be smart to build up that Oline now.

I've always liked Meyer and actually hoped Irsay would have acquired him the last couple HC openings we had. He's been a winner at every college team he's coached. And with Lawrence & Meyer,  they may be the team to beat in our division for a number of years. 

Hopefully, we can get a elite QB too AND the Jags somehow continue being the Jags.  Lol

Lets chat in 2 years. Every where he has coached, he has won.  I have  listened to him in interviews and I come away super impressed. Comes across as a leader of men and knows what he is doing. I think he will mesh well with pro players.

I don't, not with that organization even with Trevor Lawrence. I guess we will find out next year.

True, he quit on 2 college programs citing health concerns, only to return when another opportunity presented itself.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
