Our best corner in awhile and OU in LA makes a post like this? I don't get it.
Makes you question his evaluation skills.
I really do enjoy reading all of the educated analysis from our NFL talent scouts on the OUInsider boards. It's so interesting to me to see how knowledgeable they are on what NFL executives are thinking and what rounds all the OU players will fall too.
I know right from wrong. Wrong is the fun one.
Millard would be the only one out of that group. That would hurt us. We can find othet OL to pass block on running plays.
On this board you must agree with everyone or you're wrong.
We need Colvin another year. We cannot field a championship team without a pissed off, nasty, mean spirited O Line that LOVE to run block and stomp people into the dirt. We need to do that WITHOUT losing the ability to pass block.
Secondly- we need a couple of stud D Tackles. I believe we have several exceptional DEs on next year's roster. We will probably actually be better at DE.
Glad to see TM back. Hope we have Jefferson and Colvin next year as well, both are very good players, and our D will be young enough as it is.
Our O has plenty of experience coming back, if we get good play out of our QB, so a loss of Stills should not be too difficult to absorb (even with losing Brown). Of course this year our O struggled with so many new receivers. We started slow on O. So maybe two new starters next year and a new QB will cause the O to take awhile to jell.
I've seen his posts for a long time. I get it.
I don't like Colvin. He's overrated. And unlike our staff I don't use rivals ratings.
Just so you can have the whole story, I've sat there with rivals personnel when they were giving coaches of players to check out and the coaches ask where they fall into the rankings.
So you'd rather him just leave school so we can get someone in there who has never played a down and have 4 new starters in the secondary. Aaron Colvin was the best player we had on defense this year. Thats just from my ratings system though. I guess thats what makes this board fun, the different opinions. You could make an argument Colvin was the only player on our D that wasnt overated this year!

Stills leaving early is as ridiculous as its gets. That guy is scarred to come across the middle and dropped every pass when he had too. Wow, I can't believe he thinks he is ready. He will never play a down in the NFL. Broyels was starting to make a move before injury and he is very special player. Stills, really? Amazing, how arrogant these guys are and think they are special. Hey Kenny, NFL will expect you to hold on to the passes over the middle and you will not get the free pass like in Norman.
Colvin and Byrd or maybe Quentin Hayes. I think I'd move Jefferson back to Roy-back from safety; he did better there. Starting closer to the line he was a scourge to the flat passes and sweeps and he could blitz better.
We have a lot of good corner prospects: Cortez, Sanchez, Simon, Taylor (a star someday) and maybe another freshman (aside from Colvin).
At safety we have, in order of experience: Jefferson, Colvin, Quentin Hayes, Hatari Byrd and Ahmad Thomas. Both the freshmen could possibly play their first year.
Mike called Gary Simon the proto-typical boundary corner. Zack Sanchez has good ball skills. Cortez Johnson is big. Stanvon Taylor is a top two-way player. One of them might be big enough to move to safety.
I'd also like to see Julian Wilson move back to safety if Jefferson is switched back to Roy-back. I don't want Gabe Lynn in single coverage OR to be the saving tackler. Kass Everett gets so much talking-to from Mike and Bob when he leaves the field that I think he'll move straight to coaching.
Cullison your analysis of next year tells me you dont buy into the title of this thread :)
I could care less what he was ranked. I don't remember. I do watch the games though, and he is easily an NFL CB. We haven't had many of those come through under Stoops.
We'll be ok w/o KS but I think the rest should stay and agree with Cullison re moving TJ closer to the line. I think these new faces are going to play sooner under Mike's watch and yes, Colvin is good, but he's inconsistent with all due respect.
That's who I am... a Sooner.
Right or wrong, that is a funny comment.
He might be a great NFL CB. That'd be awesome but he has to work on his coverage and speed a lot. I hope he kicks butt whatever he does.
