By TOM

3. Pats Draft- OH MY! Ohio ST Vs Penn ST: ABC 7:15.

#97 Nick Bosa- Edge, 6-5, 263,- A freak just like his brother, with a great knack for hitting the quarterback. "You are looking at a really great athlete. He has great leverage, can bend well, has great balance." Ohio St DL-coach Larry Johnson said. "To find a guy at that weight who can bend as well as he can bend, and has great hand-eye coordination so that he can catch an offensive lineman, which is something not common to do, but Nick can do it. He has an ability to really attack their weakness. That is what Nick does. Every weakness, he is going to attack it. He will attack it until you take it away, then he will go to something else." He is a top five Pick.

Ohio State Overview: Nick Bosa, the 2017 Big Ten Conference Smith-Brown defensive lineman of the year and an American Football Coaches Association first-team All-American, is poised to be one of the top defensive players in all of college football during the 2018 season … he is coming off a season in which he led the Buckeyes in tackles-for-loss (16.0) and TFL yardage (74) with another team-high in quarterback sacks with 8.0 … he was second in the Big Ten in both TFLs and sacks … remarkably and outstandingly consistent, he was named a game “champion” by the Ohio State coaches for his efforts in all 12 wins last year, the only defensive player to achieve the feat … he was the team’s defensive player of the game twice: vs. UNLV and Penn State … he was part of a quartet of terrific, rotating defensive ends last year that combined for 42 tackles-for-loss and 24 quarterback sacks, with only eight defensive snaps separating them (Tyquan Lewis led with 534 and was followed by Sam Hubbard with 531, Jalyn Holmes with 527 and Bosa with 526) … Bosa was second on the team as a true freshman in 2016 with 5.0 quarterback sacks and he enters the 2018 season with career totals of 23 TFLs for 110 yards in losses and 13.5 quarterback sacks … he has played in all 27 games the past two seasons and has started seven times … he is an Academic All-Big Ten Conference honoree and a two-time OSU Scholar-Athlete majoring in communications.

#86 Dre’Mont Jones- 3-Tech, 4-3, 286, -

A pure disruptive one-gapper, who also has that knack for finding the quarterback. "The guy that has probably had the best spring of anybody on our team this spring is Dre’Mont Jones. He was outstanding this spring," Urban Meyer said. He could be a top five pick as well.

Ohio State Overview: Back-to-back terrific seasons has positioned fourth-year junior defensive tackle Dre’mont Jones as one of the top defenders on the Ohio State defense for the 2018 season … the veteran of 25 games and 23 starts has 72 career tackles and nine tackles-for-loss, for losses totaling 26 yards … Jones earned third-team all-Big Ten Conference honors in 2017 and he was named a game “champion” by OSU coaches seven times last season, including player of the game honors vs. UNLV … he red-shirted the 2015 season and then had a breakthrough season in 2016 when he moved into a starting defensive tackle position as a red-shirt freshman and was a 12-game starter by season’s end … Jones finished as the team’s leading tackler among defensive line players with 52 total tackles as a freshman … registered a personal-best eight stops in the overtime win at Wisconsin and seven in the overtime win over Michigan … he is a two-time OSU Scholar-Athlete who is majoring in sociology … spent a week this past summer in Manchester, N.H., interning with the Drug Enforcement Administration.

#8 *Kendall Sheffield- CB, 6', 193, - Next in line to be a top prospect at Corner for Ohio State. "I think the sky is the limit for Kendall. He and I talked about that a couple of days ago. The one thing that he made a lot of strides at was really, really trying to be very detailed in exactly what we were asking him to do," OSU's CB coach Taver Johnson said. "I think he did the best job of that in terms of eye-placement, anything with the techniques and it showed up. It really did show up for him this spring and he made some great strides for sure." He has a lot to prove this season to be a 1st.

Ohio State Overview: In the summer of 2018 Kendall Sheffield was selected by NFL.com as the fastest player in college football … this after he broke the Ohio State school record and the French Field House indoor record in the 60-meter dash in February with a time of 6.663 … the previous record had stood for 23 years … Sheffield, a fourth-year junior in his second year with the program, is much more than just a speed merchant, though … he had a fine sophomore season with the Buckeyes in 2017, playing in all 14 games and ranking second on the team in pass break-ups with nine … only the No. 4 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Denzel Ward, had more PBUs … Sheffield also contributed 40 tackles on the season … made three starts for Ohio State last season, including in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl against USC and Sam Darnold … earned game “champion” status from the OSU coaches for his Cotton Bowl efforts, including breaking up four passes, making three solo tackles and forcing a fumble that led to the first Buckeye touchdown in the 24-7 victory … was named a champion five times in all, including after the wins over Michigan State and Michigan … Sheffield is majoring in human development and family studies.

#3 *Damon Arnette- 6', 195, RS-JR CB- If Sheffield isn't the next Number One NFL CB than this second year starter is. This will be his forth season at Ohio State, and he could go in the 1st when all is said in done.

#59 Isaiah Prince- OT, 6-7, 310, - They kept him at ORT, but he was as dominate as you want to see your OLT be in the first two games. Elite size, long arms, smarts, and technique could make him a 1st Round OLT.

This guy will be a starting OLT in the NFL. Unless he can't play on the left side. Which some guys cannot switch sides, like Matt Light couldn't play on the right side. He is a better OLT prospect than Jamarco Jones.

Overview: Isaiah Prince is one of the leaders on the Ohio State offensive line and a true senior … he is coming off a third-team all-Big Ten Conference season in 2017 and the accolades are expected to grow this year for the veteran of all 40 Ohio State games the past three seasons and 27 consecutive starts … has been Ohio State’s starting right tackle in 2016 and 2017 and the Buckeyes have led the Big Ten in rushing in each of those seasons … Prince has led all Ohio State offensive linemen in plays from scrimmage the past two seasons, with 945 in 2016 and 933 in 2017 … he has the distinction of being the only member of the 2015 class of recruits who has played in every game the past three seasons … is majoring in sport industry.

He can turn it up field and turn the loss into a gain.

Ohio State Overview: Mike Weber is an outstanding running back who ran for over 1,000 yards as a freshman, added another 600-plus yards during a sophomore season that was slow to start because of injury, and is now healthy and ready to be a big-time producer for the Buckeyes … he and sophomore J.K.

#21 Parris Campbell- 6-1, 208, H-B/WR- He is a super athletic freak. It has taken him a while to learn the college game. He could go very high if he can play smarter and faster this season. He runs like a WR. Plays special teams, and will contribute to any team that drafts him. Might be a bit of a tweener. Solid Day Two prospect.

Ohio State Overview: Parris Campbell is a dynamic and talented football player and one of the fastest players on the team and Big Ten Conference … he is a threat to score anytime he has the football in his possession … a fifth-year senior who was a team captain in 2017, Campbell is a veteran of 34 games and 24 starts, including 12 starts during the 2017 campaign when he led the team with 18 plays of 20-or-more yards, including long receiving touchdowns of 74 yards vs. Indiana, 69 yards vs. UNLV and 57 yards in the Big Ten title game win over Wisconsin … Campbell also ranked second on the team last year with 40 receptions and first with 584 receiving yards … he averaged 13.2 yards off his 10 carries, including a long of 44 yards vs. Illinois … he was named a game “champion” by OSU coaches nine times during the season, including earning player of the game honors vs. both Indiana (six receptions for career-high 136 yards and one TD) and USC (special teams) … he enters his senior season second on the team in career receptions with 53 and second in receiving yards with 705, and he has a career 13.3 yards per carry average off his 14 rushes … a fine return specialist, Campbell led the Big Ten in 2016 in kickoff returns (27.8) and he has tied a 52-year-old Ohio State record for career kickoff return average at 30.4 yards per return (Tom Barrington, 1963-65) … Campbell’s 584 return yards in 2016 rank third in Ohio State single season history, and his 149 return yards vs. Indiana in 2016 also rank third … he is a high school teammate of Buckeye linebacker Dante Booker … is majoring in sociology.

#14 K.J. Hill- 6', 198 CB-  Steadily improving CB has looked good this season. He could slide into Day Two with a great season.

#73 Michael Jordan- 6-7, 312, OLG- Starting OLG the OSU O-line is relying on. He could be a solid Day Three pick for someone. He has monstrous size.

#11 *Austin Mack- 6-2, 215, WR- He could slide into the end of Day Two with a great season. Ohio States' QB looks to be much better than last year's QB. He can really sling the ball.

#1 Johnnie Dixon- 5-11, 198, WR- Speedster who can't stay healthy. He has talent, but if he can't take the beating in college, he can't take it in the NFL. But he has translated his speed into touchdowns, which is always converted.

#9 Trace McSorley- 6', 201, QB,- Exceedingly productive QB who is likely to be Pen States' all time leading passer at the end of this season.

#3 DeAndre Thompkins- 5-11, 188, WR,

He is a small guy that BB usually likes in his corps. He has the speed to take the top off a defense. He was the 4th or 5th option last season, and stepped up into the top two with three WRs graduating last season. Having a great year could get him Drafted early on Day Three.

He is the starting OLT for Penn State. He might not be an NFL OLT, but he could be an excellent OLG. If he chooses to come out. This game is paramount for him. He will likely stay in school.

#48 *Shareef Miller- 6-5. 280, DE,– 

He led Penn ST sacks (5), TFL (11), and 9 QB hurries. If he can double those sacks numbers he could declare as a Junior, and have a shot in Day Two. He is a cocky dude who wants to beat Nassib record of 15.5 Sacks in one season this year.

#7 Koa Farmer- SAM, 6-1, 236,

He is going to be their starter at the Sam. "I would say probably the biggest thing with Koa is this is his year," Franklin said. "He's one of the guys that's going to test really well when that time comes, but he's gotta play like it. At this point, he hasn't really played up to his speed, and I think that's what this spring and this summer will allow him to do. 

"I think him and Cam Brown can have significant roles for us on the edge, two guys that have played a lot of football for us, but it's time for them to take that next step from being good backups to being good starters or dominant starters." They are expecting him to step up this season.

#21 Amani Oruwariye- CB/Nickel, 6-1, 203,– 

He was not a starter last year, but was still named 2nd all-Big Ten last season. He is expected to be much better this season as a starter. He had 4 INTs last year. He could up being the best player in the Secondary.

#4 Nick Scott- FS, 5-11, 200, -

He is a special teams maven, so you know BB has his eyes on him. He has to step up this season and prove he can play Safety to be picked up on Day Three.

He is like Troy Apke, he is still more athlete than football player. He is one hell of an athlete. Apke was taken rounds higher because he was a top five athlete in last year's Draft.

Season: Appeared in all 13 games with one start...Selected team captain prior to the Season...Made his second career start – and first on defense – at Maryland (11/25), with his only other start coming at running back vs. Indiana in 2015.

#29 *John Reid- 5-10, 189, CB,– 

He might have been the best Corner on the team in 2015 and 2016. But he blew out his knee in 2017. If his knee is sound he could be a Day Two pick.

2017 JUNIOR SEASON: REDSHIRT Season due to injury...Named Academic All-Big Ten...Shared the 2018 Frank Patrick Memorial "Total Commitment" Award, given during spring practice to squad members who consistently follow through with their responsibilities in all facets of the football program and do so in exemplary manner, with Juwan Johnson.

#8 Kevin Givens- DL, 6-1, 285,– He has had a disappointing career at Penn State, mostly because of injury. "I think he needs to go out there consistently, week in and week out, and play a first-team all-conference caliber defensive tackle," Penn ST DC Pry said. "That's what we're looking for, and if we've gotta put him out there at end in some situations because of the opponent we're playing potentially, he's ready to do that." He has to stay healthy this season.

If he does, he could get drafted. "You talk about a guy that was kind of thrown into it. A little bit raw when he got here, and now you've got a guy that can play defensive end," Pry said. "He can play nose tackle. He can play 3-technique. He can go into three-down and play the end spot. He can play the zero. And he makes plays." They need him to play all over the line.

He has to prove he can still play and stay healthy. "He doesn't say a word," Pry said. "He works, he works, he works. Some of the guys we've pulled off, taken reps off them, but we've soaked him out there and he doesn't complain. He just works. He wants to be great. I can't say enough good things about him right now." He could get drafted on Day Three.

3. Dolphins- I watch the game last week. Tannehill has developed into a wining QB. When he is on the field, the Dolphins win. His problem is that he can't stay healthy (and the cold;). There was not a big difference in the play of Carr and Tannehill last week. It was so subtle you could stick it through the eye of a needle.

But Tannehill made the plays when it mattered most. "He's a good player. He's been a good player, he's still a good player," BB said. "Obviously, players get better with experience but he does everything well. He makes good decisions, gets the ball to his skill players, makes key plays in close games to help them win. That's the bottom line. Get your team to the winner's circle. That's what he does a lot of. That’s really what it's about." He made the plays in the 4th when Carr faltered.

There's not much that separates those two guys. "He's good at it. Not just getting out of the pocket: they use him on quarterback-running plays, read-zone plays, bootlegs, moving-pocket plays," BB said. "So yeah, all of the above. If you don't contain him he can hurt you running. If you do contain him he can hurt you passing. It's another weapon they have. Instead of covering five receivers, you've really got to cover six, because you’ve got to deal with him." But he also knows when to do those things that help teams win, and not just stats.

If he's healthy and on the field, he converts the 3rd downs that keep drives alive, and leads to points. It's a subtle change. A winner's change. With the Pats WR-Corps looking like a gaggle of lost geese, how is Brady going to out win Tannehill? Evenly matched? Brady kicks his ass.

But Tannehill has DeVante Parker and Kenny skills, while Brady has Corey Coleman (sort of) and Josh Gordon (maybe). Hell, even some WRs named Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant made plays last week. While Dorsett and Hogan disappeared, like Brett Kavanaugh every time the words "FBI-Investigation" or "Mark Judge" were said.

Can Brady match Tannehill pass for pass, when it counts towards winning, throwing to Dorsett and Hogan? No. Gronk and White, maybe? But it seemed the Pats took White and Gronk out of the game plan themselves. If mentally healthy Gordon and physically healthy Gronk can get open on the field, that will also leave cracks for White to sneak into to get open. That is their only chance.

Be A Citizen! Not a Subject! 

Fascist is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.

Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances:

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:

What happened to the Republican Party? 

 

They are now the: pro Russia, pro Putin, pro KGB, 

 

pro North Korea, and the pro Sexual Assault Party? 

 

 

 

Brett Kavanaugh proved he was 100% guilty in the hearing. 

 

Not because he was so obviously lying about: 

 

drinking, blackouts, and boofing


("That refers to flatulence," Kavanaugh lied. "We were 16.":). 

 

Just for the record, that Dumbass Trump nominated 

 

 

a Boofer to the no longer Supreme Court.

 


Not because of his unacceptable partisanism and conspiracy theory. 


And certainly not because of his belligerence. 

 


His anger made him look like a Sexual Assaulter. 

 


But if I had been accused falsely of sexual assault, 

 


I would have looked as guilty as 

 

 

Lindsey Gram having a hissy fit. 

 


But the one incontrovertible fact that struck me, 


like an enema of beer swinging out of a Supreme Court Judge's butt, 


is he refused to sat the word FBI (yes I know it's not a word;). 


He didn't just refuse to say he wanted an FBI Investigation,


But he refused to even say the word.


If that were me and I was innocent?!!

 


I would have been screaming "FBI Investigation" 

 

 

like a little girl

 

 
trying desperately to get away from a sexual assaulter.


He belligerently refused to say those three letters F-B-and-I.


If his belligerence was do to being wrongly accused,

 

 
and not sexual assaulters' rage,

 


than he would not have left that room until 

 


a full FBI investigation was so ordered, period.

 


And all 11 (R)s would not of as well, instead of lying!

 


As they refused to support a full-FBI Investigation,


And for all that is a true in the world, 


Their true admission of guilt is their refusal 


to subpoena Mark Judge. 


ALL 11 (R)s KNOW HE IS GUILTY!


He showed fear and not outrage when he was asked


to simply to support an FBI investigation.


I forget who asked, but he turned ashen,


 and stumbled through his words, when asked about the FBI.


The fear on his face was so open and palpable that


if we were playing poker, I would have went all-in. 

 


In a flash. 

 


He is guilty, and told everyone watching with that fear.


His rancor could only be explained by two reasons,


One, he was innocent and his anger was justified.


Or two, he is a sexual assaulting scumbag, 


And he is living a double life of terror.


There is no doubt in my mind that he is a

 
Jekyll and Hyde drunk. 


There is a monster living in his beer stained butt 


that must never be allowed to touch a Supreme Court seat.

 
While all reasonable women felt Christine's pain.


Every man felt his outrage of false accusation,


But every man who is capable of being honest with himself,


saw that look of confused terror

 
at the mention of an FBI investigation!


Especial when it was mixed in with Mark Judge!


Even republican men would have gone all-in at the Poker table,


though they don't seem to be able to be honest with themselves anymore.


To me it wasn't his consistently stupid


lies about not blacking out, while admitting


he had to "piece things together?


That is the definition of "Blackout"


or the insanely ridiculous "fell asleep while drinking"


that is the definition of not passing out. 

 


It was the open fear on his face at the letters: 

 


F, B, and I.
