Now that they have completed their final major pre-draft workout by participating in Wednesday's pro day, the next step for Ohio State's top draft prospects is to visit with NFL teams who are particularly interested in potentially selecting them in the 2019 NFL draft.
The Buckeye who will probably be the most in demand in the weeks leading up to the draft is Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, as teams who are considering drafting a quarterback in the first round typically likely to meet privately with each of the quarterbacks they are considering drafting.
Haskins told NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala that he met with the New York Giants last night, and said he will also meet with the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Raiders and Dolphins plan to work Haskins out in Columbus, while the Redskins, Broncos and Giants plan to host him for visits.
Nick Bosa, who is projected to be one of the first players selected in the 2019 NFL draft, had a scheduled meeting with brass from the San Francisco 49ers – who hold the No. 2 overall pick in the draft – after Wednesday's pro day, according to a report by The MMQB's Albert Breer. Bosa did not work out at pro day, but 49ers general manager John Lynch – who spent a considerable amount of time speaking with Ohio State coach Ryan Day on Wednesday – was in attendance.
Eleven Warriors caught up with several of Ohio State's other prospects after Wednesday's pro day to find out what's next on their itineraries.
Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell said he has top-30 visits (NFL teams are each allowed to bring in only 30 prospects for pre-draft visits) lined up with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, and said he anticipated that more teams would look to bring him in, as well.
"I know my agent's probably blowing my phone up right now," Campbell said.
Defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones, another Buckeye who is expected to be drafted in the first two rounds, said he has pre-draft visits scheduled with the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns.
Running back Mike Weber said he has visits planned with the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears, and said the Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are also among the teams who have shown interest in him.
Wide receiver Johnnie Dixon said he is planning to attend the local pro days for the Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. Players are allowed to attend local pro days if they played their high school or college football nearby, and Dixon is a South Florida native.
Offensive lineman Michael Jordan and wide receiver Terry McLaurin both said they are also scheduled to make multiple pre-draft visits, though they were not yet sure which teams.
