Ohio State has quite a few highly touted NFL draft prospects, like Dwayne Haskins and Nick Bosa who were both first-round selections. Here, you can stay up to date on all the Buckeyes in the draft, from selections to analysis.
The first Buckeye off the board was none other than Nick Bosa, at second overall to the San Francisco 49ers.
Bosa has long been touted as one of the draft’s very best prospects, and now he’s got the selection to go along with it. Worth mentioning: both Bosa brothers are now playing on the west coast. Joey is with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Bosa followed Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray who was selected first overall by the Arizona Cardinals.
There was a considerable gap between the first Buckeye name called and the second, but that’s really only because we’ve grown spoiled by hearing Ohio State names damn near every five picks. Dwayne Haskins was selected 15th overall by Washington.
Many had Haskins going to the Giants at 6th overall due to his New Jersey roots. However, that wasn’t the case. Here’s Haskins’ reactions to the Giants pick at No. 6, you can read into it however you’d like:
Friendly reminder that Haskins will have the opportunity to face the Giants twice a season.
We had to wait awhile, but folks, Parris Campbell has been selected. With the 59th overall pick, the Indianapolis Colts took the speedy receiver:
Campbell was the only selection from Ohio State in the second round.
Dre’Mont Jones was selected with the 8th pick in the third round, 71st overall to the Denver Broncos.
And it wasn’t long before Terry McLaurin was taken with the 13th pick in the third round (76th overall). McLaurin will be taking his talents to Washington with Dwayne Haskins.
Kendall Sheffield was the first Buckeye off the board on day 3, going at pick 9 (111th overall) to the Atlanta Falcons.
Michael Jordan was selected 34th overall in the fourth round (136th overall), but he won’t be traveling far: He’s heading to Cincinnati to play with the Bengals.
Keep checking here for updates throughout the rest of the draft.
No Buckeye selections in the fifth round, but Isaiah Prince got Ohio State back on the board when he was picked 202nd overall by the Miami Dolphins.
The Buckeyes’ last player selected is a name you’re probably familiar with: Mike Weber. He was selected 218th overall by the Cowboys, where he’ll join Buckeye great Ezekiel Elliott.
At the conclusion of the draft, nine Buckeyes were selected, which was the second most of any college behind only Alabama. Additionally, quite a few Ohio State players have been extended free agent contracts.
