If he's shortchanged maybe he could sell some things to the tattoo shop! Worked for other players no problem, it'll be dumped on the coach anyway!!

He was an average player at best in College , he wont make an impact as a Pro.

Wow - No love for the Rolle-man? He may or may not make it at the next level, but he was a great player at tOSU. I hope he gets the chance and proves he can make it. The guys played with fire and heart. Good luck to you Brian.

London Fletcher, 5'10" in high heels and 245.

Rolle's size doesn't concern me, the fact that he was a mediocre LB would be the determining factor in where he goes. Sure, if he was 6'3 and 250 that might move him up some boards, but if he was 6'3 and 250, that would make him even more mediocre.

I Soooo wish TP entered this draft so we can cleanse our hands of him.

The choice should not be his-the school should cleanse their hands of him.

Homan will go third round -- or higher. Count on it!

The school should cleanse itself of the coach who recruited TP, and covered up for him first. Then flush TP (pun intended).

If he does anything in the NFL I will be shocked, but I suppose its possible if he goes to the right team.

Rolle could be a guy that converts to a safety or play special teams in the NFL. No matter what, if he ends up doing either he will make a lot of money.

I hope Cleveland gets Dane. Brian, too, for that matter.

After the Brian Robinskee pick, I doubt they will touch Dane in the first 3 rounds.

Todd McShay would have said the same thing about London Fletcher when Fletcher entered the NFL fourteen years ago. Fletcher has a super bowl ring. His stats? 5 ft 10 inches tall 235 pounds. I know someone who played with Fletcher that says London is closer to 5 foot 8 than 5 foot 10.

Rolle can do this thing. Best wishes to him.

Homan might go that high but some team is going to be majorly disappointed. I have no idea what his 40 time is or how much he can bench press but the guy was just an average Big Ten linebacker. Doesn't have natural instincts which most previous OSU linebackers seem to have had. I hate to be negative about any Buckeye but that was just my opinion of him the past couple years. I wish him the best of luck though.

Hopefully Rolle can prove people wrong and stick around for a while when he gets his chance. Good Luck to him.

Rolle was never deserving of the #36. That jersey should be retired.
