    • Stover says he’s playing in the Cotton Bowl despite still having an injured knee because “I signed up for a full year.” He says he doubts he will play every snap, but he will play.
    • On the opportunity this game presents: “For the young guys, it’s your time to show what you can do. Mark a little territory of what you’re gonna do next year and older guys, like I said, just go out on the right note.”
    • On the growth he’s seen from Devin Brown in bowl practices: “Once you get the spot and you know it’s your spot, you already get better just by knowing that. I think he’s done well. I think he’s maturing well. I think he’s gonna be a very good player.”
    • Stover said he doesn’t want him his cousin Garrett Stover to be compared to him. “I want him to be 100 times better than me and write his own story. Don’t worry about what I did, just do what’s right.”
    • Stover thinks coming back to Ohio State for his fifth year was “one of the best decisions of my life.” He thinks he’s more mature now and that he “didn’t really know much of anything” about playing the tight end position when he looks back to a year ago.
    • On the lack of opt-outs: “I think it kind of speaks to who we got as a team, as people. We got a lot of really, really good guys over here.” He said he didn’t try to persuade anyone to play because everyone had to make their own decision.
    • On Tommy Eichenberg: “He’s one of the best linebackers in my opinion to ever play through here. And without him, I don’t think I’m still here this long. That’s my best friend. That’s the best man in my wedding. I’ll go to war with that dude any day of the week, whatever he needs. For what he’s done, to keep his mouth shut about it and how he handled stuff, that’s a special, special dude.”
    • On moving forward from the loss to Michigan: “Wounds take time to heal, so we took a little bit of that time and then again, the sun comes up the next day.”
    • On Keenan Bailey: “That’s a special dude. That’s a big reason why I did decide to come back this year, a big reason why I feel like we had a successful year as a team. I think he’s a really special player, I think he does an awesome job of what he does and he’s the kind of guy you can trust.”

    TE CADE STOVER
    Round 3, No. 82, Indianapolis Colts: Draft Tek
    Round 3, No. 86, Houston Texans: Reuter
    Round 3, No. 90, Arizona Cardinals: Jones
    Round 3, No. 101, Washington Commanders: Baumgardner
    Round 4, No. 101, Carolina Panthers: Hallam
    Round 4, No. 111, New York Jets: Cummings
    Round 4, No. 115, Cincinnati Bengals: Fragoza

    Stover’s draft projections are very similar to those of his close friend Eichenberg. All seven mock drafts in this roundup that Stover appears in have him going between the second half of the third round and the first half of the fourth round, suggesting that he, too, is on the bubble between being a late Day 2 pick or an early Day 3 selection.

    Unlike Eichenberg, none of the seven-round mock drafts in this roundup have Stover falling below the fourth round. But there are also no mocks in this roundup that project Stover to go in the first two rounds.
