  1. BrownLeader 2020 Positional Rankings

    No Damon Arnette / Shaun Wade in your CB rankings? I know Okudah gets all of the love for them (and deservedly so) but in my eyes Arnette has been their best CB all season long coverage wise. I can't think of more than 3 balls that have been completed on him. Good size, very good in run support, sticky coverage, and the dude just plays hard with a ton of confidence. He's also played with a broken hand all season. He's a 2nd rounder all day IMO. Keeping with Ohio State... where is Davon Hamilton? He has been a monster at NT all season and I don't think he's making it out of the top 3 rounds. Same thing with Jonah Jackson and Wyatt Davis (redshirt sophomore) at guard. C Josh Myers and those 2 guys make up what might be the best interior OL in the country.
  2. Official 2020 CB/S Thread

    Wade plays almost entirely in the slot. OSU has started 3 CBs and only 1 safety all season long... Arnette and Okudah out wide and Wade in the slot, and they don't switch it up at all (although against Michigan Arnette did play in the slot with Wade being out). I doubt Wade has played more than 30 snaps out wide his entire career at Ohio State.
  3. The Ohio State Buckeyes Thread v.12 — 8 in a row

    Yeah, I know. I just don't know if he pops off the screen as THE top player in the country when I watch him. I watched a little bit of Drew Sanders this morning, a top 25 player and also a similarly sized 6-5, 230 kid that plays both WR and DE and to me his physical ability jumped off the screen way more. Maybe next year is a weaker year at the top of the class for elite players? *shrug* I really don't want it to sound like I'm hating on Sawyer. He's a consensus top 5 player everywhere for a reason. I'm just a bit surprised he's ranked #1 overall instead of being a high end 4 star guy given his film.
  4. The Ohio State Buckeyes Thread v.12 — 8 in a row

    I think Sawyer is going to be a great player at Ohio State, but does anyone else not get a "#1 player in the country" feel when they watch his film or is it just me? I'm sort of surprised he's ranked as highly as he is. Top 50 player absolutely but I don't know... then again, Jashon Cornell was at one point EPSN's #1 player in the country too. Give Larry Johnson an athletic 6-5 body though (if he's still around hopefully) and good things are almost guaranteed to happen. Really excited to see what he does with Harrison these next few years, and Cade Stover was recently moved to DE. He's intriguing as well.

    I think K.J. Hill is a 4.55 at best sort of guy, and might even run 4.60+.

    Hubbard? He didn't run at the combine. http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-combine/0ap3000000919280/Jones-Sam-Hubbard-not-ready-to-run-40-yard-dash http://www.draftscout.com/dsprofile.php?PlayerId=131234&DraftYear=2018

    He actually ran a 4.95 on Ohio State's notoriously fast track at his proday. Probably a 5.0+ 40 had he ran at the combine.

    Penn State reported Saquon's time as 4.33 as well during off season testing if I recall. Turned out to be a 4.40 at the combine, so either way the dude is a freakshow. People discredited Gary's 4.57 a year or so ago. 4.58 at the combine. So who knows. Either way, even if they're .2 seconds off a 4.53 at that size is still movin'. I remember him as a recruit being raw as hell but Ohio State wanted him pretty badly.
  9. The Ohio State Buckeyes Thread v.12 — 8 in a row

    I'm seeing that Mack has been mainly at the Z this spring so that the team will have their 3 best WRs on the field most of the time. It sounds like the depth chart will be: X: VIctor, Harris Z: Mack, Olave, Wilson / Gardiner H: Hill, Gill / Saunders We haven't heard a damn thing about Gardiner. Harris taking another step this season would be huge, and obviously Olave will essentially be a starter. Usually my expectations for true freshmen playing big minutes is almost non-existent but I think Wilson sees the field a good bit, mainly out of necessity. Williams is definitely a wildcard... his film shows a lot of rawness but he's got a ton of speed. At 170 ish lbs though I'm not sure how much he'll end up playing. It seems McCall is going to be at RB pretty much exclusively and will "play a lot" this season. I'm all for that. Depth at RB is pretty weak and Hill / Gill / Saunders will eat up most of the time at H. In other news Justin Hilliard has suffered an Achilles injury and will almost assuredly miss the season. Super unfortunate, even though the possibility of him ever starting had likely come and gone. He was a beast on special teams. Everyone remember 10 star Wednesday a few years back when Cornell and Hilliard both committed on the same day? Yeah... this is why I always keep expectations low for guys that have yet to play a down of Buckeye football. Also, Craig Young will be playing LB.
  10. 2019 NFL Draft - Wide Receivers & Tight Ends

    FWIW, McLaurin is guaranteeing he'll run a 4.35. I've never understood why in the hell guys do that (they usually just end up failing to hit their mark since Indy has a slow track) but McLaurin isn't really the arrogant, boastful type so it's possible. The dude is really fast and he's a guarantee to run under 4.45 IMO. Getting in the 4.3's is definitely possible. He's going to put up big jump numbers too. https://www.landgrantholyland.com/2013/7/1/4484730/terry-mclaurin-ohio-state-commit-jumps-44-8-in-the-opening-sparq https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1711629-ohio-state-commit-terry-mclaurin-is-getting-the-attention-he-deserves

    Now everyone knows these Urban Meyer 40 times are a joke and the general rule of thumb is to add .15 to .20 seconds to each time to get an accurate number (Ward was the missing name at the top), but I think they'll both clock in around the 4.48 range. I don't see any way Dobbins gets in the 4.3's

    I can't help but feel like this team has been regressing a bit each week, but it's hard to say with all of the injuries honestly. Pryor has seemingly improved over the season and he should be taking all of the snaps away from Wint, who definitely has had a really rough year. To me, it just shows how underwhelming any safety not named Fuller or Pryor must be that they have to keep trotting Wint out there, who clearly isn't ready to see the field (if he ever will be). This Saturday is going to be an absolute dogfight, IMO. 7 games in and you are what you are; the running game has gotten worse and worse and it's probably because they've got five 6-6 to 6-7 tackles out there. They get absolutely no push and the interior OL gets abused on a lot of plays. The defense is going to be an issue the rest of the season. If Haskins has another off game like PSU at any point the rest of the year this team will be in trouble.

    I definitely wouldn't say he deserves to be on this list, but he does seem to actually have a little bit more break-away speed than Dobbins believe it or not. Dobbins is definitely shiftier / a little bit quicker, but long speed isn't really a strength of his. Dobbins definitely has a more explosive jump cut.

    What has Arnette done this season to draw everyone's ire aside from being named "Damon Arnette"? I'm genuinely curious. I know he's had his ups and downs over the years, but I legitimately haven't noticed him playing particularly bad this season. I've seen him, Wade, Okudah, and Sheffield all give up some passes this year but I feel like they're all playing fairly well. With 4 first round CBs drafted the past few years I'm not sure why people continue to question this staff's ability to evaluate CB play and put the best players on the field. Just looked up the CFB film room stats and while it's not official, the stats show what I've seen on the field; Okudah has looked the worst, but even then he hasn't looked that bad. They're playing fine; it's that safety spot opposite Fuller I'm most worried about, although it seems Pryor might be settling in. Arnette - 12 targets, 5 completions (41.6%), 83 yards, 16.6 YPC, 3 first downs, 2 PI Sheffield - 10 targets, 4 completions (40%), 89 yards, 22.3 YPC, 2 first downs, 0 PI Wade - 10 targets, 4 completions (40%), 63 yards, 15.8 ypc, 3 first downs, 0 PI Okudah - 5 targets, 4 completions (80%), 70 yards, 17.5 YPC, 3 first downs, 2 PI
