Interesting way to make the pick, but super hype for Jalyn to play in a Mike Zimmer defense. He spent his entire career at Ohio State waiting his turn, but he'll be a 10yr pro.

IDK why these broadcasters are acting like he's not very good... he played behind some really good players, of course his production isn't going to be at an elite level.

Watch it on the NFL network. I thought they were pretty fair. Their crew has been pretty good. All 3 analysts had good things to say about Jalyn

At this point of the draft Ohio State has the most players taken so far (6). Alabama has had 5 players selected.

Every 17th pick, on average, a Buckeye has been drafted. Go Bucks

I'm assuming the TTUN fans' narrative will be "The Buckeyes lost so much talent from last year..."

Lol our backup DE got drafted before arguably Michigan's best player last year, Maurice Hurst

In his defense, he's not going to get drafted because of his heart condition, but he's definitely a 1st round pick.

Honestly such an ideal landing spot for Holmes. They operate on a rotation and mike zimmer knows how to coach those edge rushers. Good luck JH!

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Great fit. He will be a terror year 2. I doubt he sees the field the much as a rookie other than a rotational piece, but he will learn from some sure fire studs

3 DE's drafted in the first 4 rounds. Not a bad recruiting pitch for HS defensive ends. Let's keep the DE position rolling. Good job Mr. Holmes.

Hopefully Zach Harrison and Bryan Bresee are paying attention....

Yes!!! Welcome to Minnesota Jalyn. Vikings were looking for DE depth and they just got a good one.

The Minnesota Vikings fans up here are very happy.

I am rationalizing the Browns picks as they are going to be patient and draft Nick Bosa next year to bookend Garrett instead of using a pick on DE this year.

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

Most likely will put on another 8-10 lbs and play 3 tech

Just saw him as #3 on “Mel’s Best Available”. So he should go in about 17 picks.

Favorite pro team took a Buckeye. So glad. Hoping you're our new star Rookie. Have fun. Skol.

Crazy to think just a few short years ago guys like Hand and Sweat were considered the "best of the best" and today they are just 4th round draft picks. Just goes to show when we lose out on a 5 star recruit, we're not always missing the boat.

sweat would've been a first round pick if it wasn't for his knee. he is a steal in the 4th round.

Nah him and Hand didn't put in enough work in college.  Both only show up about half the time
