This Week in Twitter: Ohio State Wide Receivers Go Back-to-Back-to-Back in the First and Nicholas Petit-Frere Can't Wait to Meet Derrick Henry

Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson showed up in style to the 2022 NFL Draft

This Week in Twitter is a look at some of the week's best and most entertaining tweets from Buckeyeland and beyond.

Welcome to a special NFL Draft edition of This Week in Twitter.

In all, four Buckeyes were selected in the first three rounds of the draft, and their former teammate, Dwayne Haskins, was honored with a touching moment of silence.

Round 1 saw Ohio State wide receivers Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, and Jameson Williams, a one-time teammate of Wilson and Olave at Ohio State, go back-to-back-to-back in the first third of the draft.

Wilson went 10th overall to the New York Jets, Olave followed at eleven, going to the New Orleans Saints, and Williams' name was called by the Detroit Lions at No. 12.

The man who recruited and developed the three, Brian Hartline, Ohio State's passing game coordinator, and wide receivers coach, called his shot heading into the night.

It was a perfect night for Hartline and the players he seems to care deeply about. It was a pretty damn good night on the recruiting front, too.

Hartline was feeling it so much Friday that he even called his shot on a player he didn't coach.

The Browns, evidently, took notice, snagging Purdue's David Bell not long after Hartline's tweet.

Be thankful for Brian Hartline, Ohio State fans.

For their part, Wilson and Olave are now certified fashion icons after they broke Ohio State Twitter with this screenshot of an interview from Sky Sports NFL.

I mean, c'mon.

Just two friends having the night of their lives.

W-I-L-S-O-N the J-E-T

After taking Cincinnati cornerback Sauce Gardner with the No. 4 overall pick, the Jets followed with Wilson at ten and a lot of folks were caught thinking, "wait, are the Jets actually crushing something?” (They were, indeed.)

Easy O to the Big Easy

Olave was taken by the Saints at No. 11 overall where he'll join Michael Thomas, another product of the Ohio State wide receivers room.

Olave even found time to defend his dad's fit.


Ohio State offensive tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere was the next Buckeye off the board, going in the third round to the Tennesse Titans with the 69th overall pick.

He was easily the most wholesome dude in the draft.

Petit-Frere was also quick to let his new teammate and former Michigan Wolverine Taylor Lewan know what was up.

From Childhood Fan to Drawing a Paycheck

Jeremy Ruckert heard his name called on Day 2, as well, with the New York Jets selecting the tight end, who grew up a Jets fan in Long Island, with the 101st pick.

How cool is this?
