Dallas Gant Declares To Ohio State


There was some good news for Buckeyes fans on Tuesday. They have an official commitment from, arguably, one of the country's best prospect at outside linebacker when Dallas Gant made his decision known to the public. He had quite a few options and all of them were great schools, but in the end he chose Ohio State. At six foot three inches tall, Gant is a mountain of a man, and certainly, Ohio State got the inch ahead because of the home state factor.

Cleveland Browns Pass Over Ohio State Players In NFL Draft


The Ohio State players have not had any good luck with the Cleveland Browns when it comes to the NFL Draft. The Cleveland Browns returned to the NFL in 1999 and since then, they have only drafted two (2) Buckeyes.

Since 1999, some 117 Ohio State Buckeyes have been chosen in the NFL draft. This includes Terrelle Pryor who was drafted in the 2011 supplemental draft. Of the 117 Buckeyes, twenty-eight (28) were drafted in the first round. During Urban Meyers' tenure from 2013 to 2016, seven (7) Buckeyes of an overall twenty-six were drafted in the first round.

The two (2) Buckeyes drafted by the Browns were Darnell Sanders and Brian Robiskie. Sanders, who hails from Warrensville Heights, was drafted in 2002 by the Cleveland Browns. Then in 2009, Brian Robiskie from Chagrin Falls, whose father is Terry Robiskie, a former interim coach of the Browns, was drafted. The movie "Draft Day" debuted in 2014 and it highlighted that the Cleveland Browns drafted "Vontae" (which rhymes with Donte) a fictional linebacker as their Number One draft pick.

Ohio State Buckeyes Back In The NFL Combine


It's that time of year again. The time when the true football fans often get their first peek at what the next crop of potential stars will look like. The scouting combine is a good starting point to see what kind of measurable goods the young men have to offer to possible NFL suitors. The Buckeyes just had their visit with the combine officials and the results are now in. Overall it seems like a successful visit for many of the Buckeyes class at this year's NFL Combine.

Noah Brown, the six foot two 222 pound wide receiver, is a tall strong ox of a pass catcher. The reach is a lengthy 33 1/4 inch reach with quite large hands that has the strength behind it with 19 reps on the bench press. Running a 7 second cone drill and speedy 4.33 second 40 yard dash Brown can help many teams in the league with his size and speed. Brown's durability has been called into question since he suffered a broken leg that left him sidelined for a year. Last year, he did blossom some, but many scouts say they feel he is just starting to scratch the surface of his development due to his injury. His upside is much larger than his potential injury risk. He could easily go to a team like the Patriots, or Packers, but could drop to the second round because of the injury. When asked of his injury Brown returned with the determination of a warrior saying he has just as much to prove as anybody else.

Jalen Hurd To Visit Ohio State This Weekend


Sources shared with recruiting sites that Jalen Hurd, a former Tennessee running back, is set to visit Ohio State this weekend.

Although Hurd intends to transfer from Tennessee in October, he is eligible for the draft and rumors are being thrown around that he may go pro. However, Hurd did not make the list of draft-eligible underclassmen. Hurd, who is 6 feet 4 inches and 240 pounds, did mention that he is open to playing wide receiver or tight end at his next school. However, his future position would depend on the offensive lineup at that school.

During recruitment, Hurd was ranked in the Class of 2014 as Number 40 in the country. While playing as a Volunteer at Tennessee for three seasons, Hurd amassed 20 touchdowns via 589 carries and 2,635 yards in 33 games. In addition, Hurd had six scores and 67 receptions from 492 yards. This past season, he played in seven games before deciding to leave the program.
