Another day, another Buckeye defender is off to the NFL.
For the third time this week, an Ohio State defender announced his intentions to forgo remaining eligibility and leave Columbus for the NFL draft. Gareon Conley and Malik Hooker already announced their decisions to turn pro.
On Wednesday, it was linebacker Raekwon McMillan’s turn:

The first-team All-B1G linebacker was one of the steadying forces in the middle of the Buckeye defense for the last three years. The captain led a unit that finished fourth in scoring.
After leading the team in tackles in 2015, McMillan did the same in 2016. That gave him a career total of 275 tackles in 39 games. The junior’s final game was a 15-tackle, one-sack effort against Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.
McMillan projects as a possible late-first or second-round pick.
