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.

Johnny Manziel jersey cheap online sale



“I think Merril Hoge jersey cheap needs to worry about his big neck ties,” Manziel said, per Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer. “Talking about Merril, he’s been that way since I decided to come out for the draft, so nfl jerseys from China
I guess that’s part of it, but no extra motivation or extra bump for me or anything like that. It’s just go out and play and quiet him with the way we go out and win on Sunday. That’s what we want to do.”

Manziel’s fashion advice for Hoge came after a reporter asked him to respond to the commentator’s scathing criticism of Johnny’s work against the New York Jets jersey cheap.

“He’s so sloppy fundamentally,” Hoge said Monday on SportsCenter, per Cabot. “He was reckless at A he’s reckless in the NFL. He doesn’t play in structure. He doesn’t understand concepts and it was very evident in this game. Missed a lot of hots.”

Picking apart Manziel’s film, Hoge concluded: “It’s very elementary: He’s not gotten better in two years.”

Hoge, of course, made waves before last year’s draft when he said of Manziel, per ESPN: “I see bust written all over him. You’re just not into Johnny.

Still, it’s hard to dismiss the growth that Manziel displayed on a smattering of strong throws against Gang Green. A comprehensive disaster last season, burning toward rehab, Manziel took the Cheap Jerseys from China
field for a concussed Josh McCown jersey cheap jersey cheap jersey cheap despite missing the back half of the preseason with a sore elbow.

“If you didn’t notice a change in Johnny Manziel jersey cheap jersey cheap, then I don’t know,” Browns play caller John DeFilippo said Thursday. “Did he run when the lane was there? Yeah. Did we get down and was he trying to do a little bit too much at times? Probably. I think that just comes with the maturation of understanding situational football. You can’t get two scores back on one drive, and I think the more he plays and the more he learns those things, the better he’ll get.”

Former Redskins and Texans general manager Charley Casserly told NFL Network’s Around the NFL on Friday that Manziel “showed better this year than last year.”

“What did he do better? Better poise in the pocket . his accuracy was good. I thought his decision making was good in the preseason. He can move outside the pocket and make plays,” Casserly said. “Last week, the turnovers were not good, but there were some things that you saw on the positive.”

NFL Media’s Brian Billick, though, noted that Manziel was outplayed by Titans rookie passer Marcus Mariota jersey cheap, “who on Sunday anticipated some of his throws, threw them into a hole, threw them where he knew the receiver would get to it. We have not seen that from Johnny Manziel jersey cheap jersey cheap.”

Hoge is welcome to his opinion, but it’s packed into a climate where young passers are asked to succeed immediately. Manziel is about to make his third start that’s too early to sell any player down the river.

Johnny’s career has been a disappointment to date for a team that can hardly afford another ugly footnote under center. Turning that narrative around begins with his own play and it begins Sunday.
