While many thought that it was possible for Bradley Roby to fall out of the first round, the Buckeye cornerback ended up being the selection of the AFC Champs at the 31′s pick overall.
Following a season that even he identified as disappointing and included two minor off the field incidents, Roby can’t help but be excited for the chance to earn a spot with a Super Bowl contender. And we know that he’s gotten used to the snow.
Campus Insiders with the news again:
Granted, pro football fans in Ohio aren’t all that excited about anything involving the Steelers, but having Shazier join Mike Adams, Will Allen, Bryant Browning, and Cam Heyward is pretty sweet.
Our friends at Campus Insiders take a look at this decision in their latest video:
I rarely get into talks about who’s going where in the NFL draft because its really pointless to speculate. I mean let’s be honest, there’s always that one team that will mess it up for everybody else right? I have some Buckeyes to discuss and then my Bumblin prediction on which team is going to mess everything up tonight. Let’s get rollin’ with the good.
It’s amazing to me how a players stock can literally go up after the combine and pro-days simply by being interviewed by certain teams and their brass one-on-one. Jack Mewhort has been nothing but spectacular in his play for the Buckeyes and did great at the combine and pro-day at Ohio State. He is currently ranked as the 7th over-all OT in the draft but has been taking care of business behind closed doors. He is projected as a middle to late second rounder and possibly fall to the third round.
What I am most impressed with is how he has handled the entire process. He hasn’t tried to sell something that he’s not and will provide a team the versatility needed in today’s NFL. Can the others above him do the same? Probably. What I see a team doing is taking a chance on him in place of a couple players above him in Taylor Lewan(TTUN) for obvious reasons and personality flaws and Jawuan James(Virginia) because I just feel Jack is better fundamentally. He’s done all he has needed to do to take care of business and get paid in the draft.
He has been the best lineman on a team that was loaded with pretty good ones. Jack is leading the pack as a leader and a player and some team will get a steal when they take him. He’s making noise at the right time and it will be fun seeing where he’s headed to! Good Luck Jack!!
Andrew Norwell has done everything he needed to, to be a drafted guard in the NFL. There’s been very little he’s done that should change the mindset of people drafting good players. As it is he has fallen from a surefire late rounds draft choice to a possible undrafted free-agent and at no fault of his own. Admitted by many that are involved in the late rounds there is very little effort put into who they take as much as what they take. Read More
