Ohio State has at least one player from every single positional group taken in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The talent influx to the NFL from Columbus continues to dazzle and set impressive historical marks.

With Buffalo's selection of quarterback Cardale Jones as the final pick in the fourth round Saturday afternoon (139th overall), Ohio State has had at least one player from every positional group taken this year (outside of specialists).

Ohio State set a record with 10 players off the board in the first three rounds Friday, and tied one with seven players in the first two rounds. The 10 players broke Tennessee's 16-year-old record of eight from one school going among the first three rounds.

Joey Bosa (third to San Diego), Ezekiel Elliott (fourth to Dallas) and Eli Apple (10th to the New York Giants), gave the Buckeyes three top-10 picks for first time in school history.

Taylor Decker and Darron Lee followed shortly thereafter in the top-20. Michael Thomas, Vonn Bell, Adolphus Washington, Braxton Miller and finally Nick Vannett heard their names called Friday night. Jones and linebacker Joshua Perry went Saturday.

Jalin Marshall, Tyvis Powell, Chase Farris and others continue to wait for their name to be called.
