Seven B1G players appear in NFL.com Mock Draft 2.0
There’s not much debate about it.
There are going to be a lot of Ohio State players drafted in the first round. The question is, will the Buckeyes break the record six first-rounders Miami (FL) set in 2004?
If NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah’s projections are right, Ohio State will tie that mark, but not exactly in the fashion some are expecting. Jeremiah doesn’t have Joey Bosa slotted as a top-three pick in his latest mock draft. Instead, he has the All-American pass-rusher falling all the way to No. 5 to his home-state Jacksonville Jaguars.
Still, he has favorable projections for the five other Buckeye first-rounders. The only non-OSU player Jeremiah had in the first round was Michigan State offensive tackle Jack Conklin, who figures to be a mid-first round selection.
Here’s where Jeremiah had each B1G player:
|OVERALL PICK, NFL TEAM||POSITION, PLAYER||SCHOOL|
|5. Jacksonville Jaguars||DE Joey Bosa||Ohio State|
|11. Chicago Bears||OLB Darron Lee||Ohio State|
|14. Oakland Raiders||RB Ezekiel Elliott||Ohio State|
|18. Indianapolis Colts||OT Jack Conklin||Michigan State|
|22. Houston Texans||OT Taylor Decker||Ohio State|
|24. Cincinnati Bengals||SS Vonn Bell||Ohio State|
|30. Carolina Panthers||CB Eli Apple||Ohio State|
