    Oh weird.

    Well they say they rank them based on where they think theyll get drafted at their respective positions. Maybe there just wasnt any true NFL prototype qbs, DT or Pro

        Great post. Well founded in fact and very well said. The only true measure of DM's worth is the job he does HERE & NOW, AT UF.

            Good find. Too bad he wasn't able to transfer in December.

              This is from Only Gators:

              5. The Gators are hiring: Interestingly enough, a job posting went out early Wednesday before National Signing Day officially began with Florida looking for multiple recruiting staff members to be hired immediately. Whether those are purely to replace departures from McElwain’s team or UF is staffing up remains to be seen, but the timing was certainly curious.

                Doesn't surprise me. Franks is Franks....and EJ is a true freshman. I'd rather a transfer arrive in January so they could participate in spring practice, but it is what it is. He'd be a good one. Texas is another school he'd probably look at.

                  It is a little late for that.

                    Wrong again, JD was a 5* on Scout. Evidently no one around here liked Scout, but they did have him as a 5.

                    I'm holding out hope Franks will be a decent QB. He's got the tools, he hasn't had the coaching. JD had a great year for the Mud Dogs, or whatever directional school he was at, and he was on the Bengals active roster last year. Sometimes all you need is a decent QB coach and system instead of the cluster that was the chump regime.

                      Is it too late?

                      I don’t know about Burrow’s ability, but he was a 4* out of HS, #2 on the depth chart behind Barrett and is therefore familiar with the offense. I think he’s a much better fit with Mullen than Zaire was with mac. We have a spare scholly... can’t hurt to try.

                      Yeah I saw "Senior Tackle" in that first paragraph and moved on.

                      By too late, I mean too late for him to get to spring practice. I really dont expect an GT to be ready to play with only a couple of weeks in August.... but if anyone could, it would be someone running Creyer's playbook, the same playbook for the most part.

                      When you run you QB 40 times a game, you should have many of them and obviously Allen and Trash will never step on the field.

                        I was hoping we would try to bring someone in to add to the QB depth. Figure we’re likely to lose a few after spring.

                        Yeah, if only OSU averaged the 17 you said instead of the 47 they averaged on the field... And go ahead and dislike my post, I know the truth hurts.
