Drew Brees Is A Big Fan Of Ohio State Players

New Orleans Saints’ quarterback knows a thing or two about what it takes to play in the NFL. The former Purdue QB is a 16-year veteran, ten-time Pro Bowl selection and Super Bowl winner.

Undersized at 6-1, he has almost re-written the stereotype of what today’s NFL quarterback looks like and has paved the way for others that don’t stand as tall in the pocket.

We don’t hear too much coming from the unassuming Brees, so when he does speak, we should turn our heads and listen. He spoke rather loudly the other day in a radio interview with 92.3 FM in Cleveland. In fact the native Texan had glowing praise for players that come from Ohio State.

“I’ll take Ohio State guys every day of the week, because Urban Meyer has built quite a program,” Brees told 92.3 FM in Cleveland. “There’s a mindset with all those guys. They love to compete and they’re fun to play with, so I’ll take ‘em all. Tell Urban to keep sending ‘em our way.”

New Orleans currently has more former Ohio State players on its roster in 2018 than any other program. Wide receivers Ted Ginn, Jr. and Michael Thomas, defensive backs Kurt Coleman, Marshon Lattimore and Vonn Bell, as well as quarterback J.T. Barrett are all trying to make a name for themselves and apparently succeeding (though Barrett may have to work the hardest).

Brees made a point to single out Urban Meyer, but we must remember that Kurt Coleman and the late, great Will Smith were former Jim Tressel guys.

Still, there’s no denying that Meyer has the program running on all cylinders. Coaches, players and fans alike continue to heap praise on those that were developed in Columbus, Ohio and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping soon.
