Physical Freaks

Postby Mountaineer Buc » Sat Jul 01, 2017 3:07 pm

I'm going bananas waiting for college football to get going.

Did a little work on my spreadsheet and I spotted some guys who are just enormous for the position they play. Thought I'd show a few that I've found.

Image
Cody O'Connell, OG Washington State 6'8" 370lbs.

The height reminds me of Zach Banner the big OT from USC last year who went to the Colts. Banner had a problem moving backwards, O'Connell at G won't have that issue. But at 6'8, how is Luke Faulk supposed to see the field?




Image
Orlando Brown Jr. OT, Oklahoma 6'7 340

Yeah, the son of THAT Orlando Brown. He's just as tall, but about 20lbs lighter than his old man. Last year's 1st OT off the board was Garrett Boles whom at 6'5 300 is dwarfed by brown. Cam Robinson is 6'6 326.






Image
Allen Lazard WR, Iowa St 6'5 223

Mike Evans clone. Same height and weight and I'd say is a 1st round lock already.







Image
Michael Deiter, C, Wisconsin. 6'5 325.

Gilbert Brown swears to this day he never got bigger than 350. Deiter isn't anywhere close to that yet, but he's got about 20lbs on Ethan Pocic.







Image
Chris Warren III. RB, Texas. 6'3 250

My favorite "Big Back" last year was Samaje Perine. Perine is 5'11 236. Big Texas back D'Onte Foreman....6'1 233. Warren is almost as big as Soloman Thomas (6'3 273)





Here's potentially the smallest guy in the draft next spring.

Image
Kavonte Turpin WR, TCU 5'9 153

Cody O'Connell (1st guy I posted) is almost two and a half times this dude's weight. He's about the size of a college softball player.

I got a couple more, but I gotta go to a BBQ.

How far have you gotten spreadsheet-wise? For instance, do you already know who you want to focus on in the FSU/Bama game?

We need an "insert table" function here. It'll be easier to post stats and ****.

Ohio State junior LB Jerome Baker was timed at 4.37 in the forty this spring.

That's at 6-foot-1, 223 pounds, folks. "Baker has ridiculous measurables," said Mickey Marotti, Ohio State’s assistant AD for football sports performance. "He’s tough and he's Ryan Shazier-like if not faster.


I'd speculate that his size translates to Safety in the NFL.

As a Buckeye I love the kid and the way he plays. I can't see him moving to safety in the NFL. He's good in space for a LB, but thats as far as it goes.

Shazier is a great comparison. They often have struggle disengaging from blocks, but are lightning quick withgood instincts

3-4 OLB does make sense at that size. He could even afford to put on 10lbs and still be really fast.

Good point. I'm so used to the Bucs and their 4-3 defenses, I didn't even think of that.
