Obviously we want both and they have both been to OSU and shown a fair bit of interest. Meyer has had really good success along the DL and these two could end up the #1 and #2 players in the 2014 class. Who do you think ultimately is the more impactful player and which does OSU need more?
Hand - consensus #1 player in the country. DE that seems to be able to get after the QB at will with both explosiveness and power off the edge. We have seen 2 DEs in the last two classes end up near the top of the recruiting charts. Big impact and boos to recruiting landing the top overall player. Our DE recruiting has been strong but you can never land enough of these rare talents. If Bosa moves inside then Hand become a much bigger priority.
Brown - appears to be the #1 DT and has a really rare explosiveness you rarely see from the DT position. Watch this kids film, I think its MORE impressive than Hand's film. Again DT is a position Meyer has really improved, but you never have enough big bodies up front. Motivation and motor with these big guys is typically the key, but that doesn't appear to be a problem with Brown given his pursuit of the ball. Looks to me like a sure fire top 10 draft pick.
What do you guys think???
Hand in a heartbeat
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.

I like Hand more. I think he's more versatile than Brown. I feel like if he has to, he could easily add 40 pounds and be a dominant DT, or stay slim and play the LEO.
