Ohio State Players In The 2020 NFL Draft

JeffOkudah

The Ohio State Buckeyes have been a football powerhouse for decades, supplying the NFL with many different players. The 2020 NFL draft was no different as 10 different Buckeye players were selected. Below are the 10 different players that were drafted by different teams in the NFL.

Chase Young DE - Round 1, Pick 2 - Washington Redskins

Chase Young is arguable the best player in the NFL draft, amassing an impressive 21 sacks with Ohio State last year. Young is poised to help lift the lowly Washington Redskins whose defense was 27th in total yards and points allowed last season. Unfortunately, the Redskins are a dysfunctional organization with a history of alienating their star players. Only a high character player will excel in the current hostile environment in Washington, and Young, though not known for having significant character problems, is also not known for his high character either.

Jeff Okudah CB - Round 1, Pick 3 - Detroit Lions

Jeff Okudah is a perfect fit for the Detroit Lions, a team that struggled on defense last season. Okudah is both an elite on the ball defender and an expert tackler, a quality becoming more important for cornerbacks in the increasingly short pass driven NFL. Detroit does not have a great history as a stable organization but has seen some measure of stability during the last decade under the leadership of QB Matthew Stafford.

Damon Arnette CB - Round 1, Pick 19 - Oakland Raiders

Damon Arnette is another top defensive back prospect from Ohio State, though not as good as Okudah. Arnette is physical, has good speed, but at times lacks good instincts as he is prone to grab receivers. Jon Gruden isn't known for having a disciplined team so Arnette may not be the best fit for the Raiders.

J.K. Dobbins RB - Round 2, Pick 23 - Baltimore Ravens

J.K. Dobbins is an elite north and south running back that does not possess great pass-catching skills. While he will help Baltimore as a replacement for an aging Mark Ingram, Lamar Jackson could have used a better pass-catching target.

Davon Hamilton DT - Round 3, Pick 9 - Jacksonville Jaguars

Davon Hamilton is a good run defender that has recently improved his pass defense. However, his speed and length are average, and Jacksonville is another organization that doesn't treat its top players well. Hamilton will improve the Jaguars in the short-term but may not last long there.

Jonah Jackson OG - Round 3, Pick 11 - Detroit Lions

Jonah Jackson is a good all-around offensive lineman with a decent upside. Although not as heralded as some of the other offensive linemen in the draft, he will be a solid addition to the Detroit Lions.

Malik Harrison ILB - Round 3, Pick 34 - Baltimore Ravens

Malik Harrison is an outstanding linebacker who will help the Ravens' inconsistencies on defense. Harrison is very good at rushing the passer but needs work in pass coverage.

Jordan Fuller S - Round 6, Pick 20 - Los Angeles Rams

Jordan Fuller, the 3rd member of the Ohio State secondary to be drafted, has good instincts and size that makes up for his speed, which is a little below what NFL teams would prefer at safety. He has below average man-to-man cover skills, which is not good, even for safeties, because of the emphasis on passing in the NFL. He will give the Rams much-needed depth in their secondary, but little else.

K.J. Hill WR - Round 7, Pick 6 - Los Angeles Chargers

K.J. Hill is a good slot receiver that lacks the speed to be a deep threat. He could potentially have success as a security blanket for #6 overall pick Justin Herbert. Hopefully the North Little Rock HS product catches on at the next level.

Jashon Cornell DE, Round 7, Pick 21 - Detroit Lions

Jashon Cornell started just one year at Ohio State and probably will not see much playing time in his NFL career. He might have some success as an interior pass rusher.

Cleveland Browns Pass Over Ohio State Players In NFL Draft

Terrelle_pryor_2016

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

NoahBrownNFLCombine

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.

Bradley Roby Visiting The Buffalo Bills

Bradley-Roby

Bradley Roby is available for the 2014 NFL Draft and the Buffalo Bills appear to be one team looking strongly at the corner back from Ohio State. He was the first defensive player the Bills visited prior to the draft, when they only spent time with 4 individuals. We discovered the visit when Jim Wyatt at Wyatt Sports reported it late last week. According to the source, Roby is also planning on visiting Tennessee, Pittsburgh, New York (the Jets), and San Diego.

Will Fantasy Sports always be Free?

So maybe you pay for your fantasy sports leagues because there were some extra features a provider offered or you couldn’t find the free version hidden underneath the pay version on Yahoo! But a good many do play fantasy sports online or in leagues with their friends for free or for a pot of money which gets paid out 100%. That may all change as player associates in a number of sports are looking for some of the money for the use of their names and/or the use of their statistics.
