Top current pro from your school
« on: April 24, 2022, 10:10:54 AM »
For Ohio State:

NFL:  Some interesting options, but even with some injury issues, Nick Bosa is my pick, slightly ahead of his brother, Joey.  Denzel Ward and Marshawn Lattimore are other options.

NBA: This would've been Mike Conley for the past 10 years, but I think he has lost a lot of his game, so it's at least a conversation.  I guess I'll stick with Conley for now, but strongly considered D'Angelo Russell.

NHL / MLB I don't follow closely enough to say, but would be interested to hear if there are any Buckeyes out there.

NFL:  I'd guess Stafford.
NBA:  I doubt there is a player currently.  And I'm wrong, there are three.  Anthony Edwards would be the top guy, played one year at UGA.
MLB:  Jared Walsh, not a large selection.
Golf: Bubba

Not sure.....it could be CIN kicker Evan McPherson.
Van Jefferson is good for the Rams (WR).
I really don't know, the NFL is basically the NHL for me.
.
Pretty good Gators in baseball....Pete Alonso, STL CF Harrison Bader won a gold glove, CIN 2B Jonathan India was the NL Rookie of the Year last year.  
.
In the NBA, the best is Bradley Beal.

NFL- Right now I’ll say Rasul Douglas.  He kinda broke out after the Packers signed him mid season. This is a tough one.  WVU has several guys who are solid NFL starters but none at the Pro Bowl/All Pro level.  Douglas might break from the pack if he can build off this year.

NBA- Jevon Carter. Reserve guard for the Bucks.  He’s the only option right now although I think Deuce McBride could be here if he ever gets a prolonged chance with the Knicks.

MLB- Alek Manoah.  Pitcher for the Blue Jays.  He has a chance to be All Star level good.

NFL: Russell Wilson, though it was Watt for a while.

NBA: No one currently active. 

MLB: No baseball program

NHL: Joe Pavelski or Ryan Suter?

I think some of the top NBA and MLB players never go to college, especially the latter.  I don't know about golf, I think a fair number went to college and played.

NFL = It was super easy when we had the best RB in the NFL, but that's a short shelf life.  It actually might be Cousins, even though he is overpaid.  There might be nobody more overpaid, but underappreciated than a legit, but not great, NFL QB.

NBA = I think it is probably Jaren Jackson Jr., but he has his role.  So I'll say it's still Draymond Green.  The couple of NBA podcasts I listen to say he probably has the highest defensive IQ of any NBA player ever.  In a different era, that would be WAY more valuable.   But I'll still go with him.

MLB = I think relief pitcher Anthony Misiewicz is the only active MSU player in the majors

NHL = Semantics.  Duncan Keith has the best career of any player still playing.  But he's also 40, so Torey Krug is probably the best player right now.

Other = James Piot won the US Amateur, and then beat the Euro amateur for the world amateur title.  So he's still at MSU for now, but is probably the best MSU athlete across all sports right now.  Very excited for his trajectory

Right now I think TJ Watt and JT23 are playing at a higher level than Russ.

Von Miller and Mike Evans would surely rank high up that list for A&M. Ryan Tannehill has had a surprisingly long career as a QB. It’s a shame that he rode the bench for so long at A&M, it probably cost us the Big 12 Championship in 2010.

For Purdue Ryan Kerrigan on defense and Raheem Mostert on offense (when healthy he's looked incredible).

Shoot. Forgot about TJ, good call. 

And who could’ve predicted JT would be productive at that level?
