    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Dude absolutely has a much older and mature way about him. Yes he’s confident but doesn’t have that empty cockiness about himself from what I can see. It’s like, nothing is too big for him and this is all playing out exactly like he imagined. It’s just really wild and I love it.

    Whatever “it” is the dude has plenty. Can’t believe we get to see this guy for quite a while and I can only imagine what his ceiling will be.

    It's simple - say it, back it, play it.

    Get torched on the field and you deservedly get torched after the game. Up to Denzel to make sure that doesn't happen and I am very much looking forward to the individual battle.

    That's what I was thinking, I didn't read that as Denzel being cocky at all. Just seems like he's confident in his game and should be. Shit, I can't remember a true freshman locking receivers down like this here. "Impressed" is putting it lightly, Denzel is playing out of his mind at a position that is very hard to be consistently that good at, and he's like 18 or 19? Yeah, he gets to talk some game.

    I mean I'm sure Dotson is taking it as a slight but Burke is hardly saying he isn't good. More or less saying he's not out of his depth which he isn't.

    You never like giving up bulletin board material. It’s just a quote and it’s probably not as bad as it’ll be made out to be in the Penn State locker room but you have to be careful in your interviews.

    He’s a very talented freshman who is on track to be a first round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. But he’s going up against a guy who could be a first round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He poked a bear. Let’s see if he can back it up.

    They are going straight after the secondary anyway. He needs to just play his game and the D line need to aggressively get after the QB.

    Given who this kid has to line up against every day in practice I would imagine Dotson is a step down in comp .....

    Going to get on this one ahead of time because I remember Steve Smith's words when talking about Josh Norman; I feel they apply here - "they play a lot of cover 2".

    If DB is getting safety help then I'm going to be more measured in my praise of his play. But if the Bucks run more single high, bring numbers and force Clifford to throw through his injury, then I'm likely going to gush. Provided Denzel does what we all know he is capable of doing.

    Still... VERY excited about this.

    Wasn't Denzel locking down receivers in single high vs Oregon?
