Urban Meyer jerseys authentic



I would never question Urban Meyer’s football knowledge or his evaluation skills based on his impeccable career resume, but I believe the Ohio State head coach was overselling Braxton Miller jersey cheap’s pro potential at Big Ten Media Days. While the senior standout is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous playmakers in college football, he is not “close” (as Meyer suggested on Monday) to joining the ranks of the elite quarterbacks in the 2015 class based on what I’ve seen from the Buckeyes’ star over the past few years.

Sure, Miller has provided a host of jaw dropping plays for the Buckeyes since stepping into the starting line up as a freshman in 2011, but his game isn’t polished enough to thrust him into the conversation with Jameis Winston jersey cheap, Brett Hundley jersey cheap jersey cheap, Marcus Mariota jersey cheap and even Connor Cook jersey cheap as one of the top quarterbacks in the class. I chronicled Miller’s flaws in great detail after watching his spectacularly inconsistent performance against Michigan at the end of the regular season.

In a game in which Miller completely dominated the action with his legs (16 rushes for 153 yards with 3 TDs), the Buckeyes’ star couldn’t hit the side of a barn as a passer (6 of 15 for 133 yards with 2 TDs and an interception). He repeatedly missed receivers high and wide on short , intermediate and deep throws, and didn’t exhibit the accuracy expected of an elite quarterback at the next level. Most importantly, he lacked the pocket awareness, anticipation and instincts to effectively function as a pocket passer at the next level.

Now, I could easily chalk up Miller’s poor performance against the Wolverines as simply a bad game, but I watched him struggle the following week in the Big Ten Championship Game against Michigan State. He continued to struggle with his accuracy and ball placement against the Spartans, completing only 8 of 21 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. To his credit, he kept the Buckeyes in the game by making nfl jerseys from China
a number of spectacular plays with his feet (21 carries for 142 yards and 2 TDs), but his struggles as a passer contributed to the offense’s inability to move the ball consistently against one of the top defenses in college football.

That’s why I believe Miller is a long shot to develop into a top prospect at the position prior to the 2015 draft. He has so much work to do as a passer that it’s hard for me to envision him developing the natural rhythm and mechanics to be an efficient pocket passer despite his impressive arm tools and remarkable athleticism.

Now, I hope the Buckeyes’ star proves me wrong and Wholesale NFL Jerseys
becomes a dynamic dual threat at the position because his athleticism and running skills would put NFL defensive coordinators in a bind. But the odds are simply stacked against a run first playmaker making a mark in the league as a starting quarterback.

With draft grades tied directly to how a scout views a prospect’s potential and production as a pro, it’s hard for me to imagine Miller entering the discussion as a top pick with his limitations as a pocket passer.

Biggest jerseys sales surprises of Day 2



1. The third pick of the draft’s first round was a surprise when the San Diego Chargers took Ohio State DE Joey Bosa jersey cheap, but the third pick nfl jerseys from China
of the second round was even more of a shocker. The Dallas Cowboys jersey cheap’ selection of Jaylon Smith jersey cheap marked a much shorter wait for the former Notre Dame linebacker than what was expected. A severe knee injury that is expected to keep Smith off the field in his rookie season had plunged his draft stock into total uncertainty. The pick was also somewhat surprising from the Cowboys’ perspective. It marked the second year in a row the club took a risk with a second round choice, and the payoff for the first risk might never come. DE Randy Gregory jersey cheap jersey cheap, who fell to Dallas at No. 60 overall last year among concerns over failed drug tests, was unproductive as a rookie and is already facing a four game suspension to begin his second pro season.

2. Anyone other than Michigan State’s Connor Cook jersey cheap as the fourth quarterback selected would have been surprising. As it turned out, Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg jersey cheap took that distinction when the New York Jets jersey cheap chose Wholesale Jerseys
him No. 51 overall. Jets QB coach Kevin Patullo and offensive coordinator Chan Gailey will have to untangle footwork and accuracy issues that limited Hackenberg’s production as PSU. Meanwhile, Cook slipped to Day 3 as USC’s Cody Kessler jersey cheap and North Carolina State’s Jacoby Brissett jersey cheap also went off the board, to the Cleveland Browns jersey cheap and New England Patriots jersey cheap, respectively. Cook, Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott jersey cheap and Ohio State’s Cardale Jones jersey cheap are among the top options entering Day 3.

3. Exactly how did Jarran Reed jersey cheap find himself as the last man in the green room? The Alabama defensive tackle was the 13th best player in the draft, according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah, but wasn’t even the 13th player taken in Round 2. The Seattle Seahawks jersey cheap stopped his fall with the 49th overall pick of the draft, and got a spectacular value in doing so. Reed’s slip illustrated the depth of the draft at his position. A half dozen defensive tackles were picked ahead of him, and another half dozen behind him.

4. You read that right: 13 defensive tackles are already gone with four rounds to go, and Andrew Billings jersey cheap of Baylor is still left to be had. One of the top defensive players in the Big 12, Billings is one of the draft’s top interior run stuffers, and shouldn’t last long on Day 3.

5. It wasn’t a stunner that a kicker went in the second round, but the Bucs’ decision to trade up 15 spots to land that kicker definitely raised eyebrows. Tampa Bay took Florida State’s Roberto Aguayo jersey cheap with the 59th overall pick, and gave up a third and fourth round pick to do so.

6. Utah’s Devontae Booker jersey cheap is still around. NFL Media draft expert Mike Mayock’s second best running back in the draft had an injury that limited his ability to test for scouts during draft season, which could have contributed to his Day 3 availability.

9 players nfl jerseys be popular on Day 3



Now it’s on to Day 3, where chances can be taken on players. There are still quite a few good ones left. Here are nine I’d target early (with their original overall ranking in parenthesis):

1. Devontae Booker jersey cheap (53), RB, Utah: Providing the medical reports on his knee are OK, Booker could become the fifth running back taken in this draft. He’s a guy I’d take a chance on because he’s very explosive and catches the ball well out of the backfield. Take a look at his 2014 season before the injury for evidence.

2. Zack Sanchez (67), CB, Oklahoma: I tried my best to talk Sanchez into staying in school for his senior season. I thought it was in his best interest to stay at Oklahoma and build up his frail body. There’s no doubt, he has the talent and was productive in college, but I wonder how he’ll hold up in the NFL. It might take him a year in the weight room.

3. Christian Westerman (74), OG, Arizona State: He’s got very good size (6 3 1/8, 298) and speed (sub 5.2) for a guard. Strong (34 reps) and technically sound. Could probably also play center.

4. Hassan Ridgeway (76), DT, Texas: If I had the first pick on Saturday, I’d use it on Ridgeway. He’s big, strong and fast, but will need to find a team that can motivate him. It was a problem at Texas, and probably a reason he’s still available.

5. Kenneth Dixon jersey cheap (80), RB, Louisiana Tech: Had a very good week at the Senior Bowl. He’s big, strong and quick. His production was off the charts at Louisiana Tech. I think he could play on all three downs in the NFL.

6. Dak Prescott jersey cheap (81), QB, Mississippi State: Wholesale Jerseys
Prescott is a double threat quarterback who is coming out of a Tim Tebow system and needs work with his accuracy. I think with pro coaching that part of his game will improve. He exhibits enough tools to warrant strong consideration early on Day 3. I would take him over Connor Cook jersey cheap in a heartbeat.

7. Miles Killebrew (82), S, Southern Utah Killebrew reminds me a lot of Sabby Piscitelli, the Oregon State safety who was drafted by Tampa Bay in the second round in 2007 and played in the league for five years before turning to professional wrestling. Killebrew has similar size and speed and plays with intensity. He’s a box safety that will immediately help on special teams.

8. Joshua Perry (89), ILB, Ohio State: The Buckeyes had a record 10 players drafted in the first three rounds, two more than the previous mark held by Tennessee (2000). That number will rise on Saturday and Perry should be the next to go. He is a Seahawks type linebacker if I ever saw one, but Seattle’s next pick isn’t until the back end of the fifth round a spot long after Perry is likely gone.

9. Vadal Alexander (94), OG, LSU: Remember Gabe Jackson jersey cheap, the Mississippi State lineman who went to Oakland in Round 3 a few wholesale nfl jerseys
years ago and turned into one of the best guards in the league? Alexander reminds me of him. He has slow straight line speed but doesn’t play slow. He’s a strong, fundamentally sound football player.
