As for Boren, obviously less upside...doesn't move east/west as smoothly as I would like in an ILB. With that said, he has been one of my favorite Buckeyes for years due to his physical play...loved him at FB. He blows people up. He has filled in nicely at ILB...and seems to have a nose for the ball. He is more than physical enough to fulfill a traditional thumper role. He is a great tackler. Looked a little awkward in coverage but seemed to have enough speed to hang. I see a team taking a chance on him in the 4th. I hope the Steelers are that team because I think he can develop.
I called this 2 years ago. Shawn was singing a different tune about Shazier two years ago. He should have stayed with his original thoughts about him being a top 15. :)
Singing the same tune. Why do you think I hate Shazier because I have concerns about him? Shazier has Troy like playmaking ability...but isn't a polished ILB...nor a guy who has proven he can play at NFL weight.
