    I believe that if he hadn't gotten injured in 2015, he would have been a 1st or 2nd round draft pick and may have been viewed as a much of a key to the defense as Josey and desmond were. On the Brightside we were introduced to his back up who did happen to be Parker Hesse

    Of course everybody remembers him it was just a few years ago....not 30.

    I saw him more as a 4th or 5th rounder think a better college player than NFL.

    I don't remember him being THAT dominant, though he certainly was a good player.

    He would have had an epic year. Already had 5 sacks in limited action. Played a key role at Wisc with only one arm.

    Maybe the saddest case I can remember of an injury not only destroying a season but also an NFL future.

    He was putting up impressive numbers as a SR ... when he was healthy. Had he remained healthy ... he could have perhaps climbed up to around a 3rd round pick. However, otherwise, as an earlier poster indicated ... he was more likely to have landed as a 4th or 5th round pick. Of course, the nature of his injuries made it hard for him to get the NFL looks ... even as an unsigned free-agent.

    If he was a first or second round draft pick an injury wouldn’t have kept him out of the nfl..

    Destroying an elbow and a leg during senior year will most certainly keep a high level pick out of the NFL.

    He was not going to be a first or second rounder. Solid midround guy was certainly in play, though.

    yeah I can see that I didn't completely think that through. Still if he had been healthy I could of seen him as a 3rd or 4th now that I'm thinking right. But the main point I made was the lack of his leadership. Once he went down we didn't have that leader on the D-line that we usually have. That is ultimately what we missed.

    I still believe if Ott plays in the B1G Championship game that year MSU 23 play drive doesn't happen.

    Nah, he would've been just another guy that was getting held on the last play.

    Reminds me of the Chris Farley Sat night live bit where he asked Paul Mccartny if he remembered playing with the Beatles.
