ATL_DirtyBirds Posted January 4, 2016 Share Posted January 4, 2016 I am always seeing some bias in mocks and rankings since most of y'all are SEC fans or ACC fans and don't watch much B1G Football. So I thought I would share my thoughts with the B1G players I have watched the past couple of seasons. Disclaimer: I am an Indiana fan, so I have watched those players the most and am trying not to be bias.If you want to know more about a player or one that I did not do, just reply. The ones I did not do I have not seen enough to form an opinion.Joey Bosa DE - He is worth a top 3 pick. He doesn't have great speed or anything, but great technique and power. He would excel in a similar role to JJ Watt. (Ranked 1st by CBS)Adolphus Washington DT - He is one of my favorite players and is in my mind very much underrated. Hes without a doubt one of the top run stopping DL in college. Does a good job fighting off blocks and taking on double teams. (Rated 36th by CBS)Taylor Decker/Jack Conklin OT - Grouping both of these guys together cause I have a similar feeling. Both can overpower and dominate defenses at times. But they also can get beat. Decker can sometimes "lose focus" and get beat when he shouldn't. Conklin can struggle with speed rushers and does not fit ZBS imo. (Decker ranked 16th by CBS; Conklin ranked24th by CBS)Connor Cook QB - Man there are some definite questions about his leadership. He can get rattled pretty easily. He has made his name for throwing touch passes. Not a huge arm and can be inaccurate at times. In the right situation he could succeed, it would be best for him to sit at least his first year. (Rated 18th by CBS)Ezekiel Elliot RB - He lives up to the hype. Great athlete, great hands, great competitor. 3 Down back. (Rated 20th by CBS)Michael Thomas WR - With the offense OSU ran this season he could sometimes go unnoticed. He is a 2nd round pick imo and has good speed and elusiveness in the open field. (Rated 31st by CBS)Jason Spriggs OT - I would take him over Decker or Conklin. I have watched him for a long time. He doesn't give up sacks and has great athleticism. He would fit very nicely in the ZBS and I think he could play OG for us if needed. (Rated 32nd by CBS)Shilique Calhoun DE - I would stay away from him. He doesn't really have a great quality that makes you really want him. I really haven't seen him make too many plays. Technique is pretty bad and can be overpowered. (Rated 40th by CBS)Vonn Bell SS - He is only 5'11 which might turn Quinn and Co away. He is a big hitter and can also fly to the ball. His coverage can be suspect at times. I would rather have Cash or someone. (Rated 47th by CBS)Carl Nassib DE - I think he will struggle for a while on the next level. He does not have great strength or speed and he will need to develop better rush moves to have an affect in the NFL. He plays all out though and is very lengthy so he could definitely become a good pass rusher down the road. (Rated 56th by CBS)Leonte Carroo WR - I think he is really underrated. Great route runner and athlete. He could really be a steal for us in the 2nd round. (Rated 76th by CBS)Jordan Howard RB - Another guy that a lot of people haven't heard about. He is a power runner and I mean he can lay people out. Does a nice job finding the hole and bursting through it. He could fit in the ZBS but I doubt we select a RB this high. (Rated 80th by CBS)Dan Feeney OG - He is my top OG. Fits the ZBS to a T. Great run blocker that can pull and get to the 2nd and 3rd levels successfully. Does not make mistakes in pass pro. He has yet to decide on the NFL as he is a junior but he will likely be 2nd round pick.Cardale Jones QB - He has a rocket for an arm, but struggles with accuracy and decision making. I would stay away from him. (Rated 81st by CBS)Braxton Miller WR - I wouldn't take him before the 4th round. He is a great athlete and everything, but he's transitioning to a new position and has disappeared in games for tOSU. I am not confident he will be able to put it together at WR. (Rated 95th by CBS)Aaron Burbridge WR - Sure handed WR and is a great route runner. He reminds me a bit of Roddy in that he doesn't have great speed but can make the contested catches. (Rated 122th by CBS)Anthony Zettel DE - I think he will be better than his teammate Nassib on the next level. He is a great run stopping DE and can also rush the passer. Good size and technique to get the job done. (Rated 127th by CBS)Jack Allen C - He is consistent and plays very smart. I question if he would fit the ZBS and sometimes I see some Peter Konz in him (getting overpowered). (Rated 138th by CBS)Nate Sudfeld QB - I see a lot of people on the Coker bandwagon. Here is a much better QB that can be had around the same time. He takes care of the ball, has mobility, good decision maker, good deep ball, and good accuracy. If given time to continue to develop he will be a good backup or starter. (Rated 147th by CBS)Jake Butt TE - Sure handed TE that is also a great blocker. I would LOVE to have him.Christian Hackenberg QB - He will be a bust. He can't handle pressure. Struggles with accuracy at times and decision making. He is slow in making a decision.
