Hartline Takes His Mediocrity to the NFL



SLOWHIO - I know, I know, we break stories on this site about as often as Brian Hartline gets open on the football field. But we had to chime in with this little draft nugget, that while Kurt Coleman is staying around for his senior season and yet another BCS disappointment, Hartline is fleeing college, slowly, for the pros. We're not sure how OSU plans on making up for the 21 catches they'll be losing with Hartline's departure, but considering the way Terrelle Pryor threw the ball in the Fiesta Bowl, there's a chance they'll eliminate passing from their offense all together.

CursedCleveland.com did make calls to both Mel Kiper and Todd McShay for an assessment on Hartline's draft status. Kiper said that he's got a decent arm but really struggled to find playing time at the end of the year for Kentucky. McShay, who actually knew who we were talking about, said that to the best of his knowledge the NFL hadn't added an 8th round yet, and that he hasn't begun to work on his big board of undrafted free agents. We were told that former Buckeye wideout Chad Cachio called Hartline to find out the name of his agent.

Ray small is an idiot, that is why he keeps getting suspended from the team. Sometimes football is more than just trying to make yourself, and only yourself look good! Once he grows up (running out of time), he will be a good player.
