    Hunt didn't have huge stats this season (6 sacks, 8.5 TFL), though he did have 2 sacks, 3 FL total vs. Tex A&M and TCU.

    Hunt definitely showed he is definitely a nasty force on  pass pressure. I ask the board... how does he look against the run?



    Haven't been able to find any 2012 tape, hope some gets posted soon.

    T-Minus 14 days till Notre Dame brings home the National Championship



    If they do, I can't wait to see how the SEC folk would rationalize it.  GO IRISH!

    no rationalizing, id say they won it.

    just like in the opposite way, if the pats are in a weak division and got breaks on the way to a sb by playing weaker teams (only much worse often ....see florida's schedule). there is a more unfair element in that no nfl team and most college teams dont get to choose every opponent in their schedule. ie "oh, were not in any conference, we're the pats, look at our legacy, we'll take  all the money and decide who we will beat to go to the natl chamnpionship. college football at ncaa level is not exactly a "fair" sport in decidign a champion.

    now i would not say they were the only or the most deserving team to be in the game.

    if youve read my thoughts i think 8 or 9 teams deserve to be in a playoff for the title.

    thee most deserving on the field to me is florida by far only tema to face 4 top 12 teams.

    the best 2 teams by eye test ive shared earlier

    but i think the only fair thing is an eight (or 12 ive seen) team playoff. thats my thought.

    saw some video of hunt against pitt and a and m, didnt see a top tier pass rusher, and very green in football years but looked strong.

    WKentucky DE Quanterus Smith is also a kid i like in the 3rd round if he could add a little more weight by the time the combine rolls around. 6'5 250lb at the moment. destroyed Alabama's LT DJ Fluker (2-3 round prospect in 2013) for 3 sacks and a forced fumble, also had 3 stops against the run.

    He's an intriguing kid that could be a value pick for some team as he did tear his ACL in November, I believe.

    Yes... I like the kid.

    I have only one Ohio St recording on the DVR. I have the game against Wisconsin. I viewed it to see Hankins and Shazier. Hankins I was disppointed. Shazier I thought was good. The kis whom I thought really shined in that game was Simon.

    Definitely a high motor guy. Looks like a guy with better agility than the C Jones or Nink

    does NE have enough cap room going into next season to sign wes, vollmer, talib, woodhead, edelman and say osi umenyiora?



    35 mil i believe




    I would say yes to Welker.  He will be tagged.  He's worth the $11.4MM price tag which is far less than the amount he'd get on the open market.  The Pats have about $35MM in cap space.  They should have enough to resign all those guys.  I don't think they will make a big splash in free agency, they seldom do.

    In response to ricky12684's comment:

    "strength?"

    Senior fullback Zach Boren is like most players: he grabs 50-pound dumbbells and cranks out as many reps as he can.

    Then Boren looks over at fellow senior, defensive end John Simon.

    Simon, who has the 80-pound dumbbells, is blowing through reps at a furious rate and shows no signs of stopping.

    œJohn will give out a big yell, call us some names and pull out the 80's and start rubbing it in our faces, Boren said.

    Even among a group of elite Division I athletes, the hulking senior defensive lineman stands out.

    That has always been the narrative when it comes to Simon. He has developed a reputation for being one of, if not the strongest, players in the Big Ten, a conference known for strength above all else.

    Perhaps the only thing more freakish than Simon's strength though, is the work ethic he has used to accomplish it.

    Doesn't have the length of a lot of the potential edge players in this class (though his height/weight is similar to Nink), but def has a lot of the characteristics that BB values (motor, strength, off field prep, etc.)... hope to see him do LB drills at the combine.
