Hubbard is interesting.

He has his pros. He's got size and good hands. He's obviously well coached. Nice motor, good pursuit, shows good instincts. He's been fairly productive on a very talented defense; 30 TFLs and 17 sacks for Ohio State in one season of sub work and two starting seasons.

However, he's never really put it all together to be a dominant talent. He misses plays better athletes would make. He has problems finishing. You could argue that he's athletically topped out. He makes alot of his hay against tight ends and running backs, which is alarming.

I've seen some places say he's a top 15 pick. I don't agree. I think he's a late second, maybe early third round talent. If he's there in the third, I wouldn't be too upset if we get him. While he isn't the passrushing superman we are all waiting for, he's a guy who can add good snaps to the rotation.

Good teams have guys like Hubbard.


I’m A Buckeye homer and have watched every game he has played in. I think you described him very well. A solid NFL player but not a great one. What he lacks in athleticism he partially makes up for in determination.

I defer to you Zarni. When I've watched him he's reminded me your basic 2nd-3rd round end. 5-8 sacks. High motor. Pretty good against the run. Unlikely to wash out, and even less likely to go to a Pro Bowl. I'd liken him to a poor man's Chris Long. If went away from end in the 1st, then drafted Hubbard in the 2nd, I wouldn't particularly feel like we were that much closer to solving the problem, you know?

If they're that stupid, then I wish them all possible success with their bold decision making.

Is it a fact that they are going 4-3? He would have to screw up the combine pretty bad for us to get him in the 2nd, I expect the opposite and that is he will continue to climb.

Remember, if you get to the quarterback, how it happened isnt nearly as important. If he can come onto the field and change how an offense runs its plays and the defense can turn that into a weakness it shows value.

Cheb, you got any film you can watch on Jaylon Ferguson. I got a feeling on him that he could produce.

He's returning for his senior year, and for good reason. He's not very good right now.

The more I watch him, the more I'm liking Rasheem Green out of USC. A good defensive line coach can mold him into something special. If he's there in the second round, I would be very enthusiastic. Hell, I wouldn't be opposed to trading up for him, so long as the price wasn't too prohibitive.

I have searched for that info and could never find it. Plus, Louisiana Tech was not a good team in 2017.

I think him and Taven Bryan can play inside or outside.

I had him in my mock, though as a mid round guy. Definitely a unique piece of clay, and I agree he's a talent that just needs some coaching. 2nd round would be rich for me considering how early we're picking and the talent that will be there that is less raw, and that he isn't a need at all, but if we could get him in rounds 3 or 4 he'd be a great guy to groom behind McCoy.

I agree, second round is a little rich for me too. Usually, the high second is when you grab that "I can't believe he fell out of the first" guy. A Cook, a Spence, a Bowers, a Myles Jack, a Jaylon Smith, etc. Like I always say there's 40-50 "locked in first round" guys every year, so there's always a ton of talent on top of the 2nd. Green isn't one of those. But if he's really viewed that way we could go worse. Hard to really know atm without knowing what else is on the board at that time.

I've been mining the bottom of the draft for rush talent, and I think that Joe Ostman from Central Michigan will outplay his draft status. He will drop very far because his measurables will suck badly, but he led the country in sacks this year and he got another in the Shrine game. I think he has some worth in the sixth or seventh. The dude has a great swim, great hands, a good rip and spin, an admirable motor, and just finishes at the QB very well.

He's one of those coach's dream guys. Lives in the gym, all out at practice, runs gassers with the linemen after he already did his.

He's Gary Bertier.

Regarding Chubb, I've noticed he had 3 beastly DT's on the line to help him. I dont see other D-line showing up that helped Davenport.
