runs a 4.65 on his 1st attempt. This was tied for 3rd fastest time in the first round. Was unable to beat his 1st attempt and finish tied for 6th. To go along with his 18 bench press(pretty low for a TE). He does seem to be a little on the smallish side though.

north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
Not an elite run for a TE but definitely a solid one. He won't run away from anyone at that level, he just needs to show he can get open against LB's and be strong enough in the run game. That OT from Arkansas Pine Bluff ran a 4.6 YIKES!!!! OT's aren't supposed to move like that.
I'm flashing back to early stoneburner gossip about his 4.4 times.
Solid run for a te his size. Nothing spectacular
I take it you haven't seen this 350 pounder run! Hearing he will play D line and probably used on short yardage and goal line situations.
A 350 lb running back? Thats worst nightmare! David Fangupo just may bring that bad dream to reality for his upcoming NCAA opponents in 2...
That time to go along with his size should turn some heads. He just has to make sure his hands stay consistent...like he'd better catch any & everything within a foot of his wingspan.

4.65 40, 18 bench reps, 34.5" vertical jump, and 9'8" broad jump....
not bad if u ask me... benchpress is a touch low, but the other numbers seem good.
He's a stiff athlete. Don't have high hopes.
Good luck to you Stoney! Just be careful who you pee in front of, even if it's a drug test.
Stoney's numbers are pretty solid.
Yeah I don't see stoney making a big leap in the nfl. He'll be lucky to make it even for a few years. Te is a tremendously difficult job in the nfl and he can't do anything great and he doesn't do it all even decently.
Maybe tress should've let him be a te from day one instead of moving him so much.
Anybody know why the dramatic dropoff in his production this year? The obvious answer is the offense, but Urbs TE's normally have good numbers.
I am afraid you are correct sir. Stiffness and inconsistency catching the rock doesn't bode well for him. great kid.wish him the best.
Last year was his best year in terms of yards, and second in TD's and catches. He's never had much production, so I wouldn't say there has been a drop-off.
Wow. The kid had some wheels too. He was running away from everyone.
Stoney has always been a bit over-hyped. I remember how every year was gonna be his breakout year. Then it was blamed on the Tressel offense and he was gonna be the next Aaron Hernandez in Meyer's offense - he had 16 catches. He needed to blow up at the combine to have any shot to go in the first 5 rounds. He is gonna be late rounder or even a UDFA. The 4.65 is solid but not spectacular.
And wasn't he always listed at 6'5 during his time at OSU? 6'3 seemed surprisingly small to me.
They also claimed he ran in the 4.4's - guys are never as fast or as big as they are reported. You will see the same thing when Hyde and Roby run at the combine next year. Hyde will run in the high 4.5's and Roby will run a solid 4.4 or 4.45. But they report running a 4.4 for Hyde and 4.3 for Roby. Adrian Peterson ran 4.38, a 4.4 and 4.43 at in three tries at the combine. Hyde isn't anywhere in that neighborhood.
MarkV nailed it, Stoney is way too stiff through the hips which is why he struggles to get open despite his impressive combine numbers. Route running is a fluid science and this is not a fluid athlete. He's also waaaaay overrated in the hands department. For as few targets as he got, his drops were plentiful.
I agree with you 100%. Stoney is a good kid but IMO he is not even close to an NFL caliber TE. I am sure I will get a bunch of DV's for this but oh well.
We all know Urban and Stoney had a sit down meeting during the season. Some of you may or may not know that Jake's parents were also in that meeting. Long story short Urban basically told him he needs to focus on getting his degree and figure out what he is going to do after football because he does not have a long term future in the NFL. Urbs basically told him he would be a late round draft pick at best and fighting for a roster spot once he got to a NFL camp. TIFWIW.
I just think that Jake doesn't do anything exceptionally well. In the NFL if you can do something really really well you can carve out a nice career i.e Ben Hartsock being a great blocker (who is still playing BTW) I just don't think Jake does anything well enough to sustain a long or impactful career in the NFL.

I want to see Buckeyes succeed at the next level, but Stoneburner never really produced alot at OSU, so what would make him do so in the NFL where the competition is even better??
