I didn't think anything could be worse than GBN's last mock.

I stand corrected.

Reaching 10-15 spots for Clady based on need.

Oher not only declaring, but going 24? And listed as a guard? Laughable.

Gholston going that late?

In all honestly, with the exception of Kenny Phillips, I'd be happier with anyone from 6 - 17.

And I think just about everyone knows my take on the QB class, yet there's 3 in that group.

I've seen Long, Clady, Baker, and Cherilus in action, but I haven't caught Oher in action.

I've seen 4 games this year, 3 last year and 3 his freshman year, when he played Guard.

That's the thing.

The people that want him, want him because they HAVE seen him play.

He was a beast as a freshman, but struggled to learn the offense. If you know anything about his story, you can understand why. To play well on the OL as a freshman in the SEC is a huge deal, to do it with a limited knowledge of the offense id nothing short of amazing.

First Team All SEC in 2007.

The next Orlando Pace, Jonathan Ogden or Walter Jones, in the minds of many scouts.

Don't hear those manes being thrown around like that regarding Long or Clady......

But it sounds like he's staying in school to play for Houston Nutt, and I think his "mom" really wants him to get his degree. His adoptive family has more money than God, so heading to the NFL isn't the issue it is for most kids.

I'm not talking about Lemming. You're the one who brought him up. Not me. I've mentioned him in other threads. Not this one.

You're also the one who said this wasn't the first time you'd seen Oher projected as a guard.

I would be interested to see linked proof of reputable scouts saying he projects as a guard in the NFL, because I've followed this kids career as closely as humanly possible from 500 miles away and haven't seen a single mention of him projecting as anything but an elite LT.

I'm really not trying to be difficult, but if you make a statement that contradicts everything else that is being reported and known, here and otherwise, you can bet someone is going to ask you for the proof. I'm genuinely curious.

My comment was more I've seen him projected as a Guard on more mocks than just that one. That's why I said it isn't the first time I've seen that. I don't expect it, but hey whoever is doing the mock is giving an opinion. Obviously if he goes in the first round and ends up playing Guard it means he failed as a Tackle that's all.

Thank you for your honesty regarding those comments being made by "some internet guy." I could start a webpage, create a mock and list him as a Center if I wanted to. Doesn't make it so.

I just wanted to clarify for those members of the board that don't know Oher or his story well.

People see your comments, then they spread like wildfire.

Also, I'm curious about the Tom Lemming comment. IMO, most people here have no clue what he actually does. I think it would be beneficial to hear this story about him that you eluded to.

Tom Lemming is a high school recruiting guy, he worked for ESPN for a long time basically doing what Rivals does or the "scout" service whatever one you wanna use as a comparison. The story is he is heavily bias and got fired from ESPN for doing things like trying to convince Lorenzo Booker to drop his commit to FSU and go to Notre Dame. He's always been a huge ND freak and tried to push recruits there and would jack up their rankings if they did...he was one of the guy who would always vastly overrate the ND classes.

Booker talked about on a radio show how Lemming kept telling him he was smart and should go to ND and not play with all the dipshits down at FSU. Booker was the #3 overall ranked player at the time in recruiting.

He also did many of the same things with top notch prospect Myron Rolle who ended up at FSU...here's a story that goes with that...

Recruit says he was pushed toward Notre Dame

One exciting development came out of an otherwise dull meeting of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics on Monday. Highly touted Florida State signee Myron Rolle told the meeting of the Knight Commission that he was instructed by recruiting analyst Tom Lemming to keep Notre Dame on his short list of schools in order to increase his chances to be named MVP of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl all-star game and ensure that he would be a featured player during the telecast of the game. NBC, which showed the high school game in San Antonio on Jan. 7, also has a contract for Notre Dame home games.

This is not the first time that Lemming has been linked to negative recruiting surrounding FSU, but it is certainly the most noteworthy. Lemming is one of many widely known recruiting wonks whose rankings are used by media outlets and fans to determine the quality of a particular class of incoming freshman football players. Lemming's rankings are used by several major media outlets including USA Today. After he made the comments about being told by Lemming to consider Notre Dame, Myron Rolle repeated the remarks after the end of the committee's session.

"He told me if I kept Notre Dame in mind, the NBC (TV) guy would interview me and they would showcase me during the game. He told me I'd have a higher chance of being MVP. I took it as having less of a chance of getting MVP if I didn't keep Notre Dame on my list."

Lemming denies that the conversation ever took place, and claimed that Rolle misconstrued questions about his choice of a college. Rolle has stated several times that he plans to attend medical school after his football career ends and that academics would come first in his selection of a school. Lemming claimed that any questions he had about Rolle's choice of a school only stemmed from trying to discover why he selected FSU over more-ballyhooed academic institutions such as Stanford and Duke. He also accused Rolle of being eager to gain as much exposure for himself as possible.

"Myron is the biggest media hound that I've ever seen, I selected him for this game in September, and he played in the game. (Criticism) is part of the business when you select an All-American team. Myron's taking it to a new level. It hurt his ego when he wasn't first-team All-American."

Lemming's recruiting rankings have Rolle ranked 28th in the nation, while other services such as Rivals.com, ESPN.com, and Scout.com have Rolle ranked as high as #1 in the whole nation. Rolle has enrolled at Florida State already and will be available to join the rest of the team during spring practice and is expected to immediately compete for playing time at safety.

That's pretty much what I meant when I said he isn't reputable, Oher is an outstanding prospect in my view, much better than Clady, athletically he has more tools than Long does by a mile.

Mecca

I know Sam Baker pretty well man...there's a huge difference in those guys. Oher is more naturally gifted and has more room to grow, Baker is basically a maxed out finished product.

Oher has tremendous upside, Baker virtually has none..plus Baker is more of a soft finesse lineman when compared to the NFL game.

Thanks for the info.

Whether it's true or not is a whole other issue.

Some more background for those who don't know Lemming's work.

Prior to his time with ESPN, he literally built his Prep Scouting service from the ground up. At 23, he started traveling the country by car interviewing and viewing tape of high school players.

Now, all but 7 Division 1 schools subscribe to his reports.

That doesn't happen by accident.

He's responsible for the creation of the US army High School All-American game, and he handpicks the players.

Yep.

Oher has the prototypical frame.

Huge ass and thighs. Girth in the lower body is a must.

Long arms, to keep pass rushers off his body.

Huge hands, if he gets them on you, you're toast.

Unless you've sen him play, I don't think people appreciate how BIG Oher really is. His weight and height don't tell the whole story.

When the Tuohy family first brought him into their home, Mrs. Tuohy realized he needed clothes badly.

She called a friend, Patrick Ramsey, who was playing for the Redskins at the time, gave him Mike's measurements, and asked if any guys on the Redskins could offer some hand-me-downs for Mike.

Ramsey called back and said that she must have gotten the measurements wrong. There was no one on the Redskins roster that was that big.

And this was in HIGH SCHOOL.

I'd absolutely love to take James Laurinitis.

Vernon Gholston is slated to be the next Merriman, but he wouldn't work well in our system, JL would be a great acquisition. From what I did watch on Ellis the other night, was so-so, he batted a pass down, got pretty decent pressure, but I don't recall seeing him make any "wow" plays. Of course, I'm not about to rag on the guy's body of work, I'm sure he has all the credentials necessary to be a Top 10 pick, and an average bowl game won't sway anyone.

That Ray M., their MLB is a freakin' stud. If that guy comes out, It would be a pretty tough pick between him and JL.

DJ at the SAM, Laurinaitis at the MIKE and Rivers at the WILL?

Unfair.

Brian Cushing may be better than Rivers is, it's pretty close.

Mecca: hypothetical question testing your fanhood.

Would you rather USC won 5 NC's in a row, or the Chiefs win 1 SB?

LOL..I'd rather the Chiefs win a bowl...I've seen back to back NC's and I think SC is going to be on that level for many years now...the Chiefs I don't know if I'll ever get it.

I was a Chiefs fan before I was an SC fan by a couple years, before I got into college ball anyway.

I saw earlier today that E.J. Henderson's little brother, Erin is declaring for the draft.

What round is he expected to go?

somehow Michael Oher was the 1st person in the last decade that is 6'5'' and over 300lbs. oh wait....


You don't appreciate how big this kid is, guys like House(Willie Roaf's nickname in college) have to have clothes tailored for their measurments.

poor guy. I am able to go to the store and give my pant and shirt size and find clothes that fit...its like magic. "big guys" are able to give that same information at the "big and tall store" and get clothes.

somehow Michael Oher was the 1st person in the last decade that is 6'5'' and over 300lbs. oh wait....It depends how the weight is distributed, he may have extraordinarily large thighs and or buttocks, and maybe his chest span is huge...

You know I don't think I've ever seen him play, I don't see Maryland much at all.......can you tell me anything about him..

I don't think he was as productive a college player as EJ but if he has more tools...EJ was a 2nd rounder.

This is probably it.
First surprise, I teared up.
Second surprise, I don't know if I teared up over his story, or over the prospect of him plowing down D-linemen for the Chiefs.

I don't think he was as productive a college player as EJ but if he has more tools...EJ was a 2nd rounder.I really don't know. He played a pretty solid game from what I saw, but I couldn't muster up enough enthusiasm to watch the entire Emerald Bowl with Oregon State and Maryland playing. In all honesty, I think I might have watched 1 and 1/2 quarters.

The commentators did make some remarks that he was more or less a sure-fire starter at the NFL if he should decide to declare.

All of the above.

As I pointed out earlier, the lower body girth is something all lockdown LT have.

I'm a fairly average size guy, but my thighs are huge, and it makes a ton of difference when performing manual labor, wrestling, football, etc.

One of my good friends is short, about 5'6" or so, but he's got tree-trunks for legs and he's one strong, powerful S.O.B.

I could imagine a man that tall, with that much weight, and huge legs would be a real force.
