I keep saying that he should be the next OC for the Steelers.

He will be the next head coach at tOSU, as soon as Urban Meyer burns out again. (Remember, you heard it here first.)


Funny, I'd had the same thought.

Honestly, I think Meyer will put in at least 10 years with OSU.

It was his dream job and basically recruits itself. Kids line up to play at OSU, especially with Meyer there.

Some more guys I'd like to add:

Carlos Watkins DL Clemson
This kid wowed me with his brute strength and athletic ability when I watched some his tape from this past season. This guy could be scary good, I think he's a lot like Jarran Reed except I think his ceiling could be higher.

Caleb Brantley DT/NT Florida
This guy is as strong as an ox and is quick off the snap. He's only 6'2" 300ish, but he can really play. He and Bullard last year were a force on the interior.

Tim Williams OLB/DE Alabama
I know what you're thinking, Alabama pass rushers haven't panned out recently. This kid is legit. He's played in a rotation his entire time at Alabama but he has great burst and quickness which have made him a nightmare to contain in pass protection. He almost declared this past year and I think he might be college football's best pass rusher this year.

Rashaan Evans ILB Alabama
Incredibly athletic, this guy can do it all: cover, lay the wood, and rush the passer. He also really times his interior blitzes well. I think he and Williams will be first round picks come next April.

Jamal Adams SS LSU
He is a total package guy. He isn't some big hitter who can't cover. He does a really good job covering slot players and he can really hit. I doubt the Steelers are in the market for another safety, but Adams is a 1st round talent.

Jarrad Davis ILB Florida
Talk about the guy who got to play behind Brantley and Bullard....this guy can hit and cover with the best of them and was an instrumental part of Florida stout defense this past season.

Fred Ross WR Mississippi State
Everyone knew about Derunya Wilson this past year but Ross emerged as a big play guy and reliable pass catcher. I think he will make a good #2 WR if he takes another step forward with his game.

Forgot to say I like Bucky Bodges as top TE-- but it's a deep TE class.

I'm not sure he's even the best pass rusher in his conference, Smithy

Had 10.5 sacks and he only played 20% of Alabama's snaps last year. Yeah Myles Garrett is a freak but this guy is going to explode.

Both Barnett and Maybin are great football players with massive god-given motors. They are both better than you probably even think.

Maybin has some serious recurrent shoulder issues and should be considered a FA at best at this point. Barnett remain a complete and utter stud.
