I LOVE Pitts and I’ve said it in several threads now but I feel like he’s going to go too high for the Jets to draft him. Had wanted a potential day two guy to fall in love with. Need to watch more but Wydermyer is the early favorite. They’ve got a chance to put together a heck of a draft class if they do this right.

Is Wydermeyer draft eligible in 2021?  I thought he was in the 2019 recruiting class?

You're right of course, the tape is limited at best - but already suggests (to me) he's a better receiver than Jordan, and has some Olsen/Goedert similarities in style. The arrow will be pointing up I'd wager. 

I agree, he’s a Long Island kid and I wondered why he went to OSU in the first place.   They don’t exactly feature or use the TE very much as a receiver.

I don't pretend to have any sort of grasp of recruiting and what that circuit looks like. Would like to have worked in that business though! That's how i got my start, talent management... anyway - Ruckert looks like a slam dunk. 

No idea why Wydermyer is draft eligible. I too, had to do a google to make sure i wasn't missing something, came up empty. He is indeed, a draft eligible true sophomore though  *shrugs*

I started following the recruiting thing when my old roommate from Clemson became involved with it for Clemson.  He’s been able to get me access to the Nike Elite 11 camps and some decent access to the Clemson staff.   He’s been doing it for a while so he knows a ton of coaches from all different schools.   I just find it interesting watching some of these kids develop from Juniors in high school to the NFL.

I work with recruiters all the time coaching and at the clinics.  It's wild what goes into alot of it. 

 No doubt.   It can get a little dirty and grimy though.   It’s all about relationships, some programs have better pipelines and connections.

I had a WR getting scouted last year by some D1 programs, an old friend of mine called me up to come recruit (he coaches OL for a D1 program).  Kid didnt even put up numbers really but local papers talk and he came to visit last year.  Kid ended up doing other things though. 

Agreed.  I’ve seen kids here in NJ being recruited by big time D1 programs who when you look at their HS stats you would never think they would be D1 material.  Happens all the time though.  I remember Noah Brown from Pope John here in NJ, went to Ohio State had a mediocre career but was drafted by Dallas.  Jarret Guarantano from Bergen Catholic, never had a stellar season there, went to Tennessee.   I saw a lot of those kids when they were coming up.  Even Josh Allen at Montclair, Kentucky was the only D1 program that offers him I think.   It’s crazy how one year can change the trajectory for some of these kids.
