Everyone knows there is some serious talent in the B1G, and it is always fun to try and speculate where guys might end up.
It may only be September, but there’s no time like the present to bust out some mock drafts. Pro Football Focus provided one on Wednesday, and five B1G stars were among the first-round selections.
In fact, the top five selections featured three B1G defenders coming off the board. Ohio State’s Chase Young and Jeffrey Okudah and Iowa’s A.J. Epenesa are all expected to be taken very early. The No. 1 overall pick in the mock draft was Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa.
Here are the five B1G stars expected to be taken in Round 1:
- No. 2 – Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State – Cincinnati Bengals
- No. 4 – Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- No. 5 – A.J. Epenesa, EDGE, Iowa – New York Jets
- No. 8 – Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa – Arizona Cardinals
- No. 28 – Tyler Biadasz, IOL, Wisconsin – Los Angeles Rams
