Just saw a tweet (by Mike) where an NFL draft analyst has Michael Bennett in the 1st round. I know Bennett has had a great year, but I wasnt expecting to hear he has elevated himself to 1st round material this year. Great news none the less. "His first-step quickness is the best I've seen from a defensive tackle this season, and that allows him to consistently beat offensive guards and centers to the ball."
This upcoming draft will be very favorable to the Buckeyes
Bradley Roby- Every mock draft I have looked at still has him as a 1st round pick
Ryan Shazier- Anywhere from a top 15 pick to very early 2nd round
Mike Bennett- 1st-2nd
Braxton Miller- 2nd or 3rd (possibly higher) The rumors are he is going to enter the NFL draft. As much as I hate rumors I tend to believe this one since he has a young child
Devin Smith- 2nd
Jack Mewhort- 3rd
Carlos Hyde- 3rd or 4th
Andrew Norwell- 5th
Marcus Hall- 6th
CJ Barnett- 4th
Corey Linsley- 7th
That's 12 players who have a legitimate shot of getting drafted, 3 in the 1st round. I wouldnt be shocked to see a team take Kenny G or Jordan Hall in later rounds. Needless to say, but the Buckeyes are losing a lot of talent.
