The past Buckeyes linebacker, Etiene Sabino, and 16 other former Buckeyes graced a training session on Friday during the Annual Ohio State Football Pro Day.
The primary order of business was a bunch of four players with divergent talents and the ability to be drawn in the first round pick. The players included running back Carlos Hyde, linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback Bradley Roby and Jack Mewhort, an offensive lineman.
What could have been a successful workout session turned out to be a drab anticlimax as all of the 17 former Buckeyes we unable to complete the arduous drilling practice session due to injury or fatigue.
However, all was not lost during the Annual Ohio State Football Pro Day. The fans got what they deserved as they were able to witness the former Buckeyes doing what they used to do so well. Plus, various lessons were harvested which will become cemented when applied to future fantasy football leagues.
Ryan is outlandish
Shazier picked up a hamstring injury before the NFL Scouting combine. He was therefore unable to run the 40-yard sprint he was guilty of failing to complete on Friday due to a similar hamstring problem.
Nonetheless, he staged some mad results
Shazier clocked an unofficial 4.36 seconds. Even though this appears quick it could get worse the moment it becomes official and hits the airwaves. It is the best time for linebackers and the 4th best when all the player's speeds are analysed together.
When in Indianapolis, Ryan Shazier executed the highest ever vertical jump, a spine chilling 42 inches. He is evidently fiery. His thunderbolt speed, classy tactics and excellent technique were all displayed on Friday and they are on record.
Shazier will be absent in the second round.
Mewhort's diversity was on show in Columbus as he played left tackle for the majority of the time and also started at right and left guard is some matches.
In the NFL he however preferred to remain at tackle. With a weight of 315lbs and a height of 6.6 inches he will surely be able to get a stint or two.
It will be an awesome idea for Mewhort to try out different positions as there are no guarantees in the NFL. Most NFL teams have a lot of versatility in their ranks and players who can play different positions.
Any player who harbors hopes of being picked for the first team must be willing and able to play in different roles.
Besides, being drafted is what all players dream of.
Look forward to seeing Kenny Guiton training for the Patriots.
The good news for Kenny Guiton is that the New England Patriots have a gnac for mounting the Big 10 quarterbacks. Remember, this is the same team that helped Tom Brady (Michigan) to scale the heights of success and earn a place in the Hall of Fame.
