As if I couldn't be more disinterested with the beginning of tonight's NFL Draft, the cold hard facts suggest a B1G player won't be selected in the first round for the first time in 60 years.
As it stands, the conference will be lucky to even land a second-round choice, which would likely come in the form of DE Kawann Short out of Purdue or else Buckeye defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins.
Meanwhile, the SEC is projected to have roughly a dozen first-round picks.
Though it's a virtual lock none of the Buckeyes from last year's squad will hear their name tonight, here's a list of those hoping to be drafted over the weekend with both Hankins and John Simon projected to be scooped up sometime Friday night:
Hankins, Simon, Reid Fragel, Jake Stoneburner, Nathan Williams, Zach Boren, Etienne Sabino, Ben Buchanan, Storm Klein, Orhian Johnson, Garrett Goebel, Travis Howard and Zach Domicone.
The expectation is a majority of these guys go undrafted while Fragel, Stoneburner and Williams are most often mentioned as Buckeyes to hear their name called from the podium.
Who is your sleeper to go undrafted but stick with a roster? I'll go way out there and take Domicone. I can see him possibly carving out a Donnie Nickey-ish special teams role for a few seasons.
