The state of Ohio is keeping around a pair of former Buckeyes.

After Ohio State CB Denzel Ward went No. 4 overall to the Cleveland Browns, the Cincinnati Bengals selected C Billy Price with the No. 21 pick.

Price went one spot after Arkansas C Frank Ragnow, and will join a team that has competed for playoff spots more often than not in recent years.

Price had fallen on many draft boards due to an injury suffered at the NFL Combine, but clearly the Bengals saw enough out of him to justify taking him in the first round.

The Buckeyes probably don’t have any other first rounders this year, but it was another good year for Ohio State players in the draft.
