    So tell me why Marcus Marek never got drafted in the Nfl ? I'll tell you why he was slow and couldn't cover backs or recivers,love Marek,but you can't rest your case and tell me why Marek never played pro he was so good in your eyes ,he did have a stint in the start up leauge that went bust in two years,think had two tackles in two years lol,and I promise you'll see Pete Warner on Sundays in the NFL..

    We're off topic, but I can answer that....

    1st: Werner is just fine. LBs in today's game have to be more mobile & he fits the bill. Dick Butkus would struggle nowadays.

    As for Marek. If you recall back then, he was a classic pile-on tackler. He'd make 2 solo tackles, then you see the game totals & he'd be credited with 10. Replays were never kind to him.

    Better example woulda been Spielman. Over 20 tackles in ttun game would made the point.

    No argument there. & I'm sure ya know I wasn't comparing Werner to him, just reacting to using Marek as an example of our classic LBs. Spiels, Cousineau, Grads, etc

    I know Todd McShay thinks pretty highly of him too (whatever thats worth)

  • Jaymar1 said... (original post)Way to rag a guy who's playing great on defense this year stats don't tell the whole story he's been covering backs and recivers out ...

    All you guys overlooking the fact ,the facts / stats back me up.

    If he does all the phantom B.S you guys all alude to him doing his Stats would back some of it up.

    Fact is they don't

    You can make fun of Marcus Marek, Pepper Johnson, Speilman, Randy G., heck even Katzenmoyer and Lauranitis played in heavy run era's .

    But explain how they all had more Interceptions than boy wonderful.

    Pete makes 1 maybe 2 plays a game as backed up by his Stats. The rest of the time he is chasing Running Backs Shadows or getting beat by a TE.

    Their are 16 Players a year nominated for that Award after the 1st 3-4 the rest is Political only a very select few have a legit shot at winning it.

    Says Volumes that Tuf B. who has had a good year gets invited to the Senior Bowl based off his play . Yet Petey doesn't.

    He is listed at 6'2 - 242 LBs on that draft profile page. Ummm, sure.

    Without a doubt, he has been OSU best LB this year. It is not even close.

    As for his NFL future, he will get drafted, but he is too small to play every down in the NFL as a LB. He is the size of a safety, but he does not run well enough to transition to that spot.

    He will be a nickel/dime LB and special teams type player.

  • Good idea for a thread Jaymar. I was never a Werner basher. He always showed a nose for the ball, versatility, and has improved over his career. He makes some plays, but I wouldn't necessarily call him an impact player. He's done well enough over his career and assuming he shows well in the combine, I see him getting drafted mid rround and he will have a chance to be a respectable NFL player.

  • Tuf has made more impact plays than Werner, but if he runs upper 5's in the combine, I'm not seeing him getting drafted. I don't think NFL teams can keep spots for a run stopper specialist at the linebacker position.

    Tuf may have made more impact plays than Browning, but if you told Browning to only focus on being a run stopper, he probably would have done better than Tuf at that.

    The fact that we have guys on the bench at the linebacker position who will also potentially be drafted, I can't sit here and say these guys have done as well as they should have as a unit so to speak. Not a bust, but not quite as high impact on the field as maybe they looked on paper.

  • I think Borland and Werner catch a lot of Buckeye angst because they spent the first years of their careers in Schiano's defense and being coached by Bill Davis (or whatever his name was). They were constantly being abused, misaligned, out of position, unable to chase down backs, or jammed up next the defensive line at the line of scrimmage. They struggled to fill the right hole, fight off linemen which were on them quickly. Certainly, Borlands injury made him incredibly slow. Are they AJ Hawk, Lauranitis or Bobby Carpenter good? No, but they have shown some improvement with new coaching. They aren't game wreckers or machines like Spielman of Big Kat. A full spring, summer workouts and fall camp might have made a huge difference this year with them.

    Do either have eligibility left with the shortened season and coronavirus ?

    Good point about Davis and coaching. I had forgotten about that.
  • Jaymar1 said... (original post)Do either have eligibility left with the shortened season and coronavirus ?

    Yes. Everybody gets a NCAA freebie. I don't know though if the University will let them play without being enrolled in some graduate program.

  • I ragged on Werner and I stand behind it. He was not a good football player his sophomore year, and he was frequently lost and out of position. Also he needed more time in the weight room as he was frequently getting bull dozed over. He was thrust into a starting position his sophomore year and he wasn't ready for it.

    He's a much better football player today and has learned from previous mistakes.

    How often have we seen guys struggle in starting positions in Freshman/Soph years to go onto to have great Junior/Senior years? It happens.

  • I think Werner is good, not great. He's the prototypical LB in today's college game with his skillset. He's big enough to stop the run and fast and flexible enough to cover backs out of the backfield and the occasional wideout when required. He also appears to be smart. I think he'll be a good pro with the proper team and scheme.

    Yeah that is probably his bull ***** weight and height as opposed to his ACTUAL weight and height.

    Nothing wrong with ending up in the NFL as a special teamer or situational player. Great work if you can get it.
