2019 Draft Profile: Oklahoma State's Jordan Brailford

In today's draft profile we take a look at Jordan Brailford. Brailford was staple of the Oklahoma State defense towards the end his time with the Cowboys.He was someone that quarterbacks around the Big 12 feared https://www.whoutletstore.com/Custom_Jersey-115. Brailford is a player that might take some time to develop, but I think with the right coaches and the right team he could really thrive. Position: Edge Height: 6' 3"Weight: 252Hometown: Tulsa, OklahomaNFL Draft Projections: 4th-7th round 2018 stats: 37 solo tackles, 9 sacks, 16 TFL for 65 yards Career stats: 90 solo tackles, 15 sacks Game to watch: Kansas Combine results: 40-yard dash: 4.65 seconds Bench press: 22 reps Vertical jump: 37.5 inchesBroad jump: 126 inches Pros: Brailford has the ability to be quick on the snap. This is what helped him get to the quarterback quite a bit during his time at OSU. He was the best past rusher in the Big 12 early in the 2018 season. He has the ability to cut through holes in the O-line in order to get to the back field and disrupt. Brailford is able to get his hands in the face of opposing blockers. He's got some moves as a stand-up linebacker and can also anchor and set as an edge. Brailford has a toughness having battle through a couple of injuries throughout his Oklahoma State Career https://www.whoutletstore.com/James_Smith_Jersey-65. He was the talk of the East-West Shrine game with plays like this..Jordan Brailford comes screaming off the edge for the SACK : live on NFL NetworkCons: Brailford is a bit undersized at 252 lbs. He might struggle with huge NFLO-lineman. His sacks might be taken with a grain of salt as most of his sacks in 2018 came against the non-conference schedule. He can struggle with maintaining his balance at times.His tapes have quite a bit of missed tackles in them. He's quite fast but will need to gain control. Brailford could end up being a steal but will take some coaching and development in order to play to his potential. This is also a edge-heavy draft which could hurt Brailford. CRFF Draft Prediction: I see Brailford going in the late rounds. Now who he ends up I'm not sure. The only team we know he's met with is the Pittsburgh Steelers. While this doesn't necessarily mean that the Steelers will end up taking Brailford, it ups the chances. The Steelers are rebuilding on defense and Brailford could provide them with a solid player that is ready to learn and help them with that https://www.whoutletstore.com/Tyson_Lang_Jersey-145. Not to mention He would be third Cowboy to go to the Steelers.

Oklahoma State Basketball Will be Tested Early in the Season

Early season tournaments are one of the most fun traditions in college basketball. It's a way for teams to break in their freshmen and for top schools to compete against each other. Oklahoma State didn't get the luxury of playing in a fun or exciting early season tournament last season. Instead, they took on Towson, George Mason, and Long Beach State in the Gildan Charleston Classic.Oklahoma State went 180 degrees this season as they're going to compete in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational alongside UCONN, North Carolina, Oregon, Wisconsin, Georgetown, Tennessee and Chaminade. The Maui Invitational is usually considered the premier early season tournament as it has a good history of hosting the eventual NCAA championship team.The bracket won't be announced until closer to the tournament, although this is the perfect tournament to help break in a new era. With a new head coach in Brad Underwood and a promising back court featuring Phil Forte III and Jawun Evans https://www.uhoutletstore.com/Zack_Early_Jersey-100, this is the kind of test that will be good for the Cowboys to see how they match up against some of the best teams in the nation.Despite the fact that Oklahoma State will likely be viewed as an underdog against everyone besides Chaminade, they couldn't be in a better position to start the season. They'll have a chance to compete against three teams that went to at least the Sweet Sixteen last season, who are also returning NBA caliber players.In a way, this tournament is like initiation for Underwood. Just like Oklahoma State will be this season, he dealt with an undersized roster at Stephen F. Austin last season where he only had one seven-footer, and he only played 6.4 minutes per game. That's because he sped up the game and out-hustled the opposing team who would then fold under pressure and make carless mistakes. It's not to say that Oklahoma State is going to enforce their will on North Carolina and shock them, however, he'll have a coaching battle in nearly every game, against a Power 5 school, to show if he is worth the hype.Whether it's Roy Williams, Kevin Ollie, John Thompson III, Greg Gard or Dana Altman, Underwood will have to bring his A-game. Luckily, like previously noted, he knows how to deal with an undersized team.Size could end up being a deciding factor and put Oklahoma State down early in a lot of games if they don't control the paint. Nigel Hayes of Wisconsin and 6'10" freshman Tony Bradley of North Carolina could easily cause major problems for the Cowboys if they don't make stopping them a top priority https://www.uhoutletstore.com/Matt_Drayton_Jersey-85. The Cowboys will have to play similar to how Stephen F. Austin did last season if they want to win games. They'll have to speed up the tempo and rely on Forte, Evans and incoming freshman Cameron McGriff. Not only will speeding up the tempo help cover up their undersized roster, it will create easier shots if they're able to get out in transition.Easier shots are a must for a team who only shot 42.3 percent from the field last season and 32.8 percent from behind the arc. It won't be easy to get potential top-ten teams to change their games https://www.uhoutletstore.com/Khyon_Gillespie_Jersey-18, especially when they're all very well coached, but it'll be a learning experience for a young coach and team.While there will be a lot of great coaches in store, the early development of Jawun Evans and Cameron McGriff is what will be most interesting. During the early season tournament last season, Forte injured his elbow and ended up missing the rest of the season. Oklahoma State knows the fifth year guard is a leader and will give quality production, however, how will his play compliment Jawun Evans?Even though he was a freshman, Evans took over as the team's go-to-guy and ended up leading the team with 12.9 points and 4.9 assists per game. They'll have a couple of regular season games before Maui to get comfortable with each other, and they could end up being the surprise duo of the tournament.Evans is a very good passer - finished with the second most assists by a freshman in OSU history - and having a three-point shooter like Forte next to him will help create a lot of opportunities. It'll help space the floor more to create open lanes for Evans to drive to the basket since he's not a three-point specialist like Forte. It may not happen right away, however, learning on the fly against players like Tyler Dorsey and Dillon Brooks of Oregon or Nigel Hayes of Wisconsin will show them what they need to work on.It's a tournament that's featuring more than a couple of tournament teams. The Cowboys are coming off a disappointing season and this is a chance to show the college basketball world that they're turning the program around.Also, it's a chance for Jawun Evans to make a name for himself. He's not going to be a player many people are looking out for heading into the tournament, however, he could put his name on the national map if he plays well, especially after being named Big 12 Freshman of the Year.

Week 3 Picks From Joe's

This is actually an intriguing slate of games for the Big 12 https://www.tvfanprostore.com/Tanner_Dobrucky_Jersey-15, despite West Virginia and Baylor getting byes.Let's see if King is intrigued...Tulsa OU...the horsedog beast faces a hurricane. A golden one at that. Too bad it only qualifies as a stiff breeze, which won't get it done, even against a team that barely beat a shitty Tennessee squad. OU 57-17La Tech KState...if Robert hadn't said anything https://www.tvfanprostore.com/Jj_Peterson_Jersey-41, I wouldn't have known this game was being played. I'm really wishing he hadn't said anything. This game isn't on TV for a reason. KState 30-14SMU TCU...The Frogs are about to show Baylor what SMU looks like when you field a defense. TCU 62-7Iowa State Toledo...Toledo beat Arkansas, so that makes them good right? Or maybe Arkansas isn't much better than the Cyclones? Yea, nobody other than Kansas is that bad. Toledo 42-21Cal Texas...Bears are omnivorous, and they kill moose. Moose are tough, wild animals. Bevo is a soft, domesticated bovine, much like UT's football program right now https://www.tvfanprostore.com/Jt_Carver_Jersey-125. Bevo is toast... Cal 40-17Tech Arkansas...Razobacks are wild hogs, and you need a real gun to kill them. Yosemite Sam's fake versions will get him gored. Unfortunately for the hog, that contact will expose him to a variety of STD's which his system is not prepared to fight. Tech 48-35UTSA OSU...Roadrunners come to town hoping OSU does it's best impression of Wile E Coyote. The offense might cooperate. Seriously, if the offensive line gets their shit together, this is a big blowout even if Yurcich calls another shit game. If the offensive line dicks around like they have the first two games, then I'll be knee deep in Jameson by halftime. I'm betting on the latter. OSU 32-10Wait...I don't have to talk about Kansas this week?

Football Recruiting: The state of Oklahoma State's offensive line for 2021 class

Oklahoma State's offensive line is the position group that has gone from one of the least concerns during the offseason to one of the biggest question marks as the season grew closer.OSU was set to return three starters and add graduate transfer Josh Sills, which had many feeling confident about the offensive line. But then the linemen started to drop like flies.Starting left tackle Dylan Galloway retired then Bryce Braywho was set to start at right tackleand Jacob Farrell were reportedly dismissed from the team https://www.omroutlet.com/Grant_Tisdale_Jersey-49. Now, not only does the offensive line take a hit for 2020, the position group's overall depth went from great to good.It's a position group that needs to have depth, and losing three players puts more pressure on recruiting. The Cowboys haven't done well on the recruiting trail for the group.OSU is set to lose three of its 16 O-linemen on scholarship to graduation unless one of them decide to take advantage of the extra year of eligibility the NCAA is awarding fall sport athletes.The Cowboys have two commitments in the 2021 class: in-state offensive tackle Logan Nobles of Jenks and Silas Barr from Pottsboro, Texas. OSU has missed out on their top targets like Reuben Fatheree and Jaeden Roberts. The Cowboys also seen players that had OSU in their top school list decide to commit elsewhere.So where does that leave things? There are six names we should be keeping an eye on.Tyler MaroOSU is one of 36 offers for the three-star tackle from Davenport, Iowa. According to Cody Nagel of GoPokes https://www.omroutlet.com/Brandon_Buckhaulter_Jersey-106, Maro is set to visit Stillwater this upcoming weekend.Maro still feels up in the air and I haven't seen much in the way of anyone knowing where he is leaning right now.Caleb EttieneOSU is in a good spot with the No. 2-rated JUCO offensive tackle from New Orleans. He named the Cowboys in his top-6 in August. At last check, all but Oregon has remained in constant contact with him.Ettiene is hoping to take his five visits before committing in February, so don't expect a decision, or even a cut-down on his list of top schools, anytime soon.Jordan MokoOSU is up against 19 other schools for Moko, another highly ranked JUCO tackle.Moko's head coach at Snow College in Utah, Andrew Mitchell, was an o-lineman at OSU in 2008-09 and a graduate assistant in 2012. OSU also has a former Snow College player on the team in redshirt junior defensive tackle Sione Asi. Moko is from Australia and OSU's kicking duo of kicker Alex Hale and punter Tom Hutton are both from Australia.Like Ettiene, Moko hopes to make official visits before making a decision, so don't expect one anytime soon.Albert ReeseReese, who is committed to Rutgers, is the most interesting of the bunch. OSU has been coming after him hard, and it's feeling more and more like he will likely not play for Rutgers.OSU and O-line coach Charlie Dickey hosted Reeseand his momon a virtual visit in August. Reese and his family are expected to make a visit on their own to Stillwater before the December signing period.Other schools currently trying to sway Reese away from Rutgers are Minnesota https://www.omroutlet.com/Cj_Terrell_Jersey-71, Ole Miss and Utah. There are other guys with OSU offers that have yet to commit, including Jacoby Jackson and Erick Cade. But at this point the Cowboys no longer look to be in the running Now obviously someone else could be added to this list. Barr went from a North Texas commit off OSU's radar to a Cowboy commit rather quickly, so we know things can change fast. But as for now, these are the guys to keep an eye on.This also isn't including any possible transfer additions, though I doubt that would happen until after Spring Ball when the coaching staff has had a chance to evaluate the position group.

High Noon Highlights (2/2): Hovland calls Stillwater home

It's high noon... Viktor Hovland has not forgotten where he came from: Despite the recent success on the PGA Tour, Viktor Hovland had not let the success get to his head. He still remains in the city where he went to college https://www.oscoutlet.com/Jake_Springfield_Jersey-44, which I think says it all. There was a fantastic feature on Hovy in the latest issue of Global Golf Post. His college coach Alan Bratton says that he saw something in him since he was a boy. "As a boy, I saw a true competitor, super-confident in himself and who thrived under pressure," Bratton said. " In college, I saw a player that would continue to improve, who could be a Ryder Cupper and contend in big tournaments. To do it so quickly, though? I might not have predicted that." Global Golf Post Baseball schedule announced: Yesterday Oklahoma State fans finally got some more answeres when it comes to the 2021 baseball season https://www.oscoutlet.com/Shaun_Taylor_Jersey-22. O'Brate Stadium will host 33 games this spring, including nonconference games against powerhouse Vanderbilt, Illinois State, Missouri State, Grand Canyon, Central Arkansas, Oral Roberts and New Orleans.The Oklahoman Oklahoma State Football players that could have a breakout year 2: Kyle Boone over at Pistols Firing Blog wrote about 5 different players who could have a breakout year in 2021. This is so interesting to think about. Mason Rudolph, Tylan Wallace and Emmanuel Ogbah all have one thing in common: They all made star turns in their second year at Oklahoma State.For Rudolph, that was starting as a sophomore after a steady rise to end his freshman season https://www.oscoutlet.com/Nathan_Engles_Jersey-105, culminating with Bedlam and Cactus Bowl wins. For Wallace, it was stepping into the spotlight post-James Washington after playing sparingly in Year One. And for Ogbah, that was coming off a redshirt freshman season to tie for the team lead in sacks. PFB Around the Big 12: TCU to honor Dr. James Cash at Wednesday's game TODAY IS A GREAT DAY!

Going Bowling: October 5th

I spend way too much time looking into bowl projections. We're not even halfway through the season yet and I've looked at four bowl projections each week https://www.mssoutlet.com/Brandon_Baldwin_Jersey-108. I'll keep it simple for y'all.I'm only going to do bowl projections for the Big 12 at this moment in time. We'll see later down the line if I expand my projections at all. Let's begin by going from the top of the conference standings to the bottomOklahoma- Sugar Bowl vs Ole Miss Currently, I still have those Sooners winning the Big 12 and cruising down to Bourbon Street on New Year's Day. They're still a solid team, but without question they are not a top four team in the country at this moment. I have them slotted to face the Lane Train and Matt "Golden" Corral in NOLA in what could be a high-scoring affair. Oklahoma State- Alamo Bowl vs Arizona State Both Oklahoma teams are undefeated right now at 5-0. But both have not looked impressive in a lot of there games. Despite being currently ranked 12. There's not room for a second Big 12 team in the New Year's Six. Oklahoma State gets the next best thing. A trip to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl. Arizona State is one of the only Pac-12 teams that looks good right now. This would be a heckuva matchup as well.Texas- Cheez-It Bowl vs North CarolinaIn a perfect world, this is where I would put Texas currently. Odds are if they don't make a New Year's Six bowl. They'll spend their holiday season at one of the many Texas-based bowl games around. But these are my bowl projections and the Longhorns are going to Disney World! As far as an ACC team is concerned, they're all the same really. No one stands out in that conference at moment except for a 5-0 Wake Forest team. I went with a matchup that provides a massive storyline... The Mack Brown Bowl!Baylor- Liberty Bowl vs LSUBaylor put up a spirited fight against the Cowboys on Saturday. At times it felt like the Bears could have easily won that game. However, the Cowboys won 24-14 and handed the Baylor its first loss of the year. If the season were to somehow end today, the Bears would be fourth in the Big 12 standings and face the Bayou Bengals of Louisiana State University https://www.mssoutlet.com/Zach_Gillespie_Jersey-93. Texas Tech- Texas Bowl vs Texas AMSome how, someway, the fellas in Lubbock are 4-1. We'll see how long that lasts but that win against West Virginia was really nice. The Red Raiders will start and would end their season in Houston and take on another Texas school, The Aggies of Texas AM from the SEC. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Iowa State- Guaranteed Rate Bowl vs PurdueIf you told Iowa State fans in July that they would be playing in a bowl game in Arizona, most of the Cyclone nation probably would have guessed that they would be returning to the Fiesta Bowl. That is not the case, however as they would play at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Playing the Purdue Boilermakers in a battle of midwestern schools. Kansas State- First Responder's Bowl vs Memphis The Big 12 has two bowl games that they potentially have ties to if they have a seventh team that is bowl eligible. Kansas State will fill this role in on my projections and will face an always game AAC team in Memphis. Teams not appearing in bowl games The Big 12 only has 7 bowl game spots, odds are only six or seven teams from the Big 12 will appear in bowl games and we have a long ways to go. TCU- I put Kansas State over TCU in the final bowl game spot because I think Kansas State is a better team with better losses at the moment. West Virginia- The Mountaineers can easily turn things around, but at 2-3, they have their work cut out for them https://www.mssoutlet.com/Maverick_Hansen_Jersey-69. They'll be on the outside looking in for now. Kansas- lol.

Pro Pokes: Blackmon and Bryant Dominate

For the rest of the NFL season I will be bringing you guys comprehensive reports on how the Pokes in the pros are doing by breaking down the All-22 film. When the coaches film becomes available for these games varies, but I will try to have it up on Wednesday or Thursday each week.First up, I take a look at Oklahoma State's two star receivers who had huge week fives.Justin BlackmonBlackmon made his season debut on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams after missing the first four games of the year due to suspension. It didn't take Blackmon long to make his presence felt, as his first catch of the year resulted in a 67-yard touchdown less than five minutes into the game. The Jaguars line Blackmon up in the slot here and have him running right up the seam. Usually the middle of the field is closed down against a single high safety look while the weak spots are generally verticals on the sidelines, but this play is going to work because of a subtle playfake by Blaine Gabbert. Gabbert may be terrible, but he actually does a pretty good job selling the quick hitch to Ace Saunders on the outside here, and it pulls the nickel corner away from the hashes and allows Blackmon to get a huge opening in the middle of the field.With Blackmon wide open, Gabbert makes the easy throw and Blackmon makes a move to beat safety Matt Giordano and he's able to put on the afterburners and beat a herd of Ram defenders in a race to the endzone.Blackmon also beat man coverage a couple of times against the Rams and Gabbert and Henne actually made some good throws into some tight windows to get him the ball. Janoris Jenkins drew the Blackmon assignment for the majority of the game and Blackmon wound up catching three of the four balls throw to him for 60 yards while Jenkins was covering him.Here Blackmon encounters press coverage from Jenkins and purposely gets outside position. As soon as he gets to the sticks, Blackmon turns and gets in position to make a tremendous grab for a first down. It's a simple timing route against man coverage and Blackmon wins the route and finishes the play with a great release from his break and stellar hands.There's no denying that Blackmon is a tremendous talent and the only thing holding him back from becoming a star is who is throwing him the ball and how he has behaved off the field. If Blackmon can get his character issues under control, he'll be set to take a path to stardom very similar to the one Michael Crabtree, my favorite college athlete of all-time and the only other two-time Biletnikoff Award winner besides Blackmon, has.Crabtree had some questions about his character arise when he held out as a rookie for a bigger contract and had to bide his time before becoming a super productive receiver https://www.mthoutlet.com/Knowledge_Mcdaniel_Jersey-77. With Alex Smith at quarterback, Crabtree never found a place in San Fransisco's offense. Crabtree got twice as many targets and had five times as many 100-yard games when Colin Kaepernick took over at quarterback, and he would have caught the game-winning pass in the Super Bowl if Cary Williams didn't hold him.As soon as Jacksonville finds themselves a quarterback, Blackmon will be poised to experience a similar rise in the hierarchy of NFL receivers.Dez BryantHow high Blackmon can rise remains to be seen, but he can only hope that he can reach the same stratosphere that Dez Bryant finds himself in nowadays.With Calvin Johnson and Julio Jones both banged up and A.J. Green saddled by Andy Dalton, Bryant may be the best wideout in football right now. According to Football Outsiders, Bryant ranks fifth in the NFL in DYAR, second in touchdowns with six behind Wes Welker of Peyton Manning's Madden offense and tied with Jimmy Graham and Julius Thomas, also participants in video game offenses, and third in first downs with 24.And keep in mind that Bryant can only compile stats when the ball is thrown to him, and often times defenses have employed bracket coverage on Dez to take him out of the game https://www.mthoutlet.com/Tyqaze_Leggs_Jersey-153. But because he doesn't pick up a stat for a particular play doesn't mean his impact wasn't felt. Bryant, as well as fellow Cowboy star Jason Witten, both make this 82-yard touchdown happen for rookie wide receiver Terrence Williams.The Cowboys are going to flood the strong side here with two outs on the left side of the formation and a deep in route from Bryant on the right. Meanwhile, Williams is going to run a deep post route, running all the way to the 35 before making his break.Here you can see how Witten and Bryant have made this play work despite not getting the football. Both of Denver's two deep safeties are going to bite on their in cuts. With Williams cutting across to the right side of the field, it is the safety on Bryant's side of the field that is responsible for providing over the top help on the deep route, but Bryant has already killed the Broncos enough in this game to warrant additional attention.The result: a tremendous throw from Romo and a nice grab from Williams gets Dallas six quick points.Now let's take a look at the plays Bryant actually gets credit for because, even though we know he's incredible, it's always fun to text your friends that THAT guy went to your university every time he makes a sick play.This is from Bryant's second touchdown on the day. Dez has become excellent at going up to catch the fade route in goal-line situations, but here Bryant makes the jumpball unnecessary. With Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie ceding some ground and expecting Bryant to go for the back pylon, Bryant uses his preconceived notions against him and catches the backshoudler throw without having to leave the ground. Safety Rahim Moore could have provided some more support here, but it appears DeMarco Murray's movement out of the backfield froze Moore just enough for Romo to take advantage of the one-on-one matchup.Here is Bryant's first touchdown from this game, which also came in the redzone. Dallas is going to run a double crossing pattern with Dez breaking towards the right corner and Williams breaks towards the left corner. With Witten releasing to the left after his blocks, the zone coverage is completely spread out, and safety Rahim Moore is isolated against Bryant as he makes his horizontal trek across the endzone.That's not even really a good decision or a great route against zone coverage in this situation. The Broncos were able to pass Bryant off and give him the smallest possible window of getting the football. But when you have a tremendous quarterback in Romo and an elite receiver in Bryant, these are the kinds of plays you can magically put together.I mean, that's filthy.The Cowboys were also able to find Bryant in space by taking advantage ofzone coverage with a drag route. In this case, with no endzonecompacting the field and a linebacker responsible for covering themiddle of the field, Bryant has a ton of room to work and he's isolated against a mediocre cover linebacker https://www.mthoutlet.com/Jordan_Calomese_Jersey-132. The defenders taken out of the play are circled in green and the defender zoning off the short middle is circled in red. With three vertical routes and Witten releasing from the slot, the defense is going to completely vacate the right side of the field, and Dallas' scheme puts Bryant in a great position to make a play.Finally, we'll take a look at what may have been Bryant's most electrifying play: In the fourth quarter he straight beats Rodgers-Cromartie on a go route up the left sideline https://www.mthoutlet.com/Xavier_Gaines_Jersey-23, makes the safety dive at his feet and miss and then forces Rodgers-Cromartie to run into his own guy before being brought down after a 79-yard gain.I may be getting carried away with myself, but at this rate, there might be a second on the Cowboys Ring of Honor in a couple of decades.
