Ohio State, Michigan highlight B1G Players to Watch

Before Big Ten media days kick off in a couple of hours in Chicago, the conference released its official Big Ten Players to Watch early Wednesday morning. The list includes 10 players – five from both divisions – and Michigan (Devin Gardner & Taylor Lewan) and Ohio State (Braxton Miller, Bradley Roby and Ryan Shazier) account for half of the representatives. See the full list in this post.

No real surprises with these names. All are deserving, and all figure to have very big 2013 seasons. Some may argue the Nebraska offense deserved another representative – either Ameer Abdullah, Kenny Bell or Spencer Long – but it’s impossible to please everyone with these kind of things.

Funny thing is, is that Roby has been suspended for a bar fight.

I know the Gophers don’t exactly scare anyone or pump out NFL players like the big name schools, but NO Ra’shede Hageman?! If he grinds out an outstanding season, he has the ability to rocket into the 1st round…that’s on top of being one of the most physically impressive DT’s in ALL of college football. Maybe it’s just me, but that sounds like a “player to watch”.

I totally agree Mike, I guess we’ll have to let Hageman beat some sense into the rest of these ‘players to watch’

Nebraska Kenny Bell at all?
