I thought OSU had 14 selected in 2003, which was a record. And, that doesn't include additionally selected free agents.

3 years from now I think they'll be up around those numbers if not above.

There were, I believe, 19 players off the 02 title team selected in the 03 and 04 NFL drafts. Bucks43201 is partially right. 14 players were taken in the 2004 NFL draft, and of course they all played on the 02 national championship team. Five players were selected, as pointed out above, in the 03 NFL draft. That's 19 players in all drafted off of Ohio State's last title team. Impressive...
