    Its more just funny because theyve taken Hall, Joseph, and Kirkpatrick all in round 1 and have 2 former first round corners on the roster.

    For a team that takes corners so often they seem corner needy all the time.

    Leon Hall turning 30 makes me feel old though

    We already signed our starting FS and he's relatively young.

    Bradley Roby talks about his strengths, hopes to prove his critics wrong

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 4, 2014



    Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby has emerged as one of the top defensive backs in the draft. He joined Fridayís edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN to discuss his game as he prepares to make the jump to the next level.

    ďI think my man to man is the best out of all of them,Ē Roby said when asked to identify what he does better than any other cornerback in the draft. ďJust my press coverage, making plays, I think making plays might be one, too. I make a lot of plays, not even at corner, at special teams, too. Iíve blocked my share of punts, and I just make the plays wherever Iím on the field, so I think thatís what really separates me. Iím a playmaker, Iím a game changer, when Iím on the field, thereís going to be a difference made in that game, and thatís what I strive to do, thatís why I love to play football, and thatís something I think that I have over everybody else.Ē

    Few football players are immune from critics, so Roby was asked to identify a criticism that he believes is unfair.

    ďThat I donít try hard,Ē Roby said. ďSome people question my effort. This last year people were saying that I wasnít trying hard and things like that, but you know I give everything I have for football. I love to play, itís what Iíve always wanted to do as a kid. Itís my dream to play in the NFL, and the fact that people say, ďOh he doesnít love to play football, doesnít love the game,í thatís one thing that really gets to me, because thereís nothing Iíd rather be doing than playing football.Ē

    Before he can play football in the NFL, Roby needs to be drafted. And he said he wonít be sweating if more and more names other than his are called out at Radio City Music Hall.

    ďI donít think Iíll be nervous,Ē Roby said. ďI mean Iím saying that now, thereís a whole month out. . . . I honestly think that God has a plan for me, and that itís already written so thereís no need to be worried, thereís no need to be nervous because Iíll be where I need to be at the end of the day. I think that Iíll be put in a situation that I can flourish in. I know the effort that Iím going to put in. And I know that Iíll be in a situation that when I put my best foot forward Iíll succeed.

    ďSo Iím not really worried about it, I can sit in the green room all day, thatís more TV time for me,Ē Roby said with a laugh. ďSo Iím not worried about it.Ē

    Roby added that he hasnít decided with certainty to attend the draft into person, but that heís thinking about it carefully.

    ďJust being at Radio City and hearing my name called and walking on the stage, shaking the Commissionerís hand. Not many people get the opportunity to do that, so thatís something Iíll definitely be considering.Ē

    The Commissioner, of course, dispenses bear hugs not handshakes at the draft. But the first bear hug from Roby will be reserved for someone else.

    ďI will definitely be giving my mom the biggest hug ever,Ē Roby said. ďSheís always been there for me, she raised me by herself, and she taught me how to work hard. I saw her work ethic in her job and it showed me how to work hard, and I just applied that to football, and just for her to be there with me at that time Iíll probably hug her to death. Just her being there and sharing that moment with her will be great.Ē

    That moment is coming in less than five weeks for Roby and the rest of the players whoíll be selected in the first three rounds of the draft. As the day approaches, Roby seems to have the right attitude.

    That is correct. Not only that but it differentiates OSU (oklahoma state) and tOSU (Ohio State) much to the chagrin of other college program fans.

    I think mentioning Curtis Brown with Roby is a fine comparison. Both have great physical ability, and both seem to lack that sense for the game. And comparing Roby to Adams isn't far-off either, as both have significant bust potential. I would be disappointed with a Roby selection, but not as bad as the Adams pick two years ago.

    I'm not sure I would say Roby doesn't have a sense for the game. He is absurdly talented and was poorly coached. He had a very good junior year campaign. If he was sitting there in the second, I would run with the card up to that podium. His ceiling is Ike Taylor with better hands.
