I know it’s a long ways away but thought we could have a thread about talk of the draft next spring.

Tyler Nubin getting some recognition.

Speaking of the secondary, gotta think that Terrell Smith might be playing himself into late to mid round consideration especially given his speed and length. I think he will test well and he has been impressive so far this year.

I remember him standing out right off the bat as a freshman. Quietly (which is a good thing for a d-back) been a very solid player for the Gophers. At the very least.....his speed should help him make a roster as a back end dback who can also contribute on ST.

Gophers safety Tyler Nubin drawing attention from NFL​


On Nubin, Fleck said, “The great thing about Tyler is you can’t say enough good things about him. I can’t stop talking about him. … You want to be the best “and” guy on the team. He’s one of them.”

Gophers defensive coordinator Joe Rossi said Nubin has become one of their best players “because he practices really hard, because he studies really hard.

“He’s got ability, for sure. … But there are a lot of people with God-given ability, and the ones that maximize that God-given ability are good people doing the right things.”

Rossi said the “cool thing” is that Nubin has not always been among their best players. Nubin, a four-star recruit from St. Charles, Ill., transitioned from cornerback to safety in college and struggled in his first significant action in 2020.

Nubin’s PFF grade was 45.6 in 2020, roughly half of what it is now. When addressing another player las week, Rossi has used Nubin’s practice habits as an example.

The biggest stride Nubin has made from 2021 is with his tackling. “It’s way more aggressive,” fellow safety Jordan Howden said.


Go Gophers!!

Earlier this year I thought Tanner had a chance to be drafted. Now I lay down until those kind of thoughts go away.
He'll get invited to camp somewhere and maybe get a few snaps in a preseason game but that's probably it. I think that would have been the case even if he has been playing well.

If he is invited to an NFL camp I owe you a drink. The 2019 Tanner is long gone and I have no idea where he went.
