Malik Hooker signs deal worth $12.6 million with Colts

Former Ohio State CB Malik Hooker signed big rookie deal with the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday morning.

Hooker, who was selected No. 15 overallĀ in the NFL Draft by the Colts, signed a deal worth $12,599,908, according to Spotrac.com. He had a signing bonus worth $7.3 million.

This is another feather in the cap for Ohio State, which has had fantastic success in the draft recently. According to Cleveland.com, Buckeye draft picks have made more than $173 million over the past two years.

Last year, Hooker tallied 74 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, four pass break-ups and three interceptions with the Buckeyes. And don’t forget this incredible play:

Hooker was projected as a top 10 pick by several mock drafts this season but slipped to No. 15. But the former Buckeye is still in for a pretty nice payday.
