  7. I started watching video (all his throws in one game broken down to around eleven minutes) on Rudolph at lunch today. I only watched two games, but I like his college "tape" way better than Dobbs. I'll have to clarify my "soft" statement from above. He may speak soft, but he doesn't play soft. I may actually watch some preseason this year. @ Iowa State and @ Pitt Marvin Lewis jokes the Steelers “had the room” bugged and were discussing drafting QB Mason Rudolph before Pittsburgh jumped ahead of them. You can do this on any of the QB's drafted, just go to youtube and type in "draft breakdown (first name) (last name)." I like it better than watching highlight videos, because you get to watch all the bad throws too. Mayfield vs OSU
  8. Not me. I wrote this before the draft. " I know the NFL team I root for is high on Dobbs, I am not. If I HAD to have a QB I suppose I would draft Mahomes." Not sure what to think about Rudolph, I haven't seen him play, and haven't viewed a highlight film on him yet. I have heard him interviewed since being drafted, he seems a little "soft" to me. He has a great opportunity, and walks into a perfect situation for himself. I honestly didn't expect the Steelers to draft a QB unless this type of opportunity presented itself. Since the Steelers don't get to draft in the top 10, seems like a decent chance to take with the 79th pick. ---------------------------------------------------- Just a reminder, Mel is out, if he is a man of his word...which I doubt. Kiper had ND quarterback Jimmy Clausen ranked as the fourth best prospect in the entire 2010 NFL Draft even though most other draft pundits had the QB projected to go in the second round (Clausen was selected 48th overall). At the time, people accused Kiper of being biased since he and Clausen shared the same agent, Gary Wichard. "Kiper ‘If Jimmy Clausen is not a successful quarterback in the NFL, I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.’ "McShay: ‘What is your time frame, Mel? When do we make that assessment?’ “Kiper: “I want eight years.” “McShay: ‘It will only take three years, Mel. We can tell inside three years.’ “Kiper: ‘I want eight.’ Times up. Hope ESPN wises up so I have another option to watch during the draft.
  9. How Scott Frost is transforming Nebraska -by ESPN writer Mitch Sherman ....Frost's first set of practices in Lincoln featured the largest crowd nationally this year for a spring game and marked "the first step in a journey for us," said the 43-year-old coach, a former star Nebraska quarterback who led UCF to a 13-0 finish in 2017.... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- For reference: 2018 Cornhusker roster @HuskerFBNation
  10. 2018 Spring Football

    Thanks for taking the time to post @72 Roo. Great information! You had the running backs name spelled correctly, Abraham Alce @boss_abraham. Below are some quotes from coach Bowden (in case you missed) about players you mention above. Info extracted from the recruiting article @Captain Kangaroo wrote back in February. RJ Kelly―Toughness is the first word that came to mind when describing RJ Kelly, the offensive lineman from Akron Hoban. “Tough, tough kid. Good student. He got looks from a lot of Power 5 schools. But when it came down to choosing between MAC-level programs I think Coach Boykin did a great job convincing him to come to Akron. He and Fonte...those are the two local linemen we were after, and they’re absolutely huge for us.” Keyondre White―The Zips staff felt the need to develop a bigger, more physical presence at the running back position. Keyondre White fits the bill. “At 231 lbs, Keyondre is a big guy. We haven’t signed a big back like that since we’ve been here. Now we’ve got Devanier Floyd, Abraham Alce and Keyondre. He enrolled early, and I can’t wait to watch him in the spring. He looks a little heavy right now, but I don’t want him to lose any weight until we see how he runs. He runs real low, and carriesa big punch. He’s got enough speed to break a long one, but he’s also apunishing runner. If he can’t run around a safety, he can run over him.” Abraham Alce―“Great story. He’s a six foot one, two hundred fiftypound running back He played on a great high school team that lost in the state championship game. He’s just a big back that can run. We (Coach Eric Hickson – now at Kansas State) recruited him heavily, early- on. You know we really didn’t think he’d be available past December. But when he decided he didn’t want to play on the defensive side of the ball, we got back into the picture. He had a lot of offers to ‘mid-Power5’ type schools. We’re really excited to have him.”
