In any profession, when you work your entire to life to achieve something and then see it come true, it is a pretty special feeling. Some former Buckeyes were able to see their names called in the NFL Draft over the weekend, living out their lifelong dream.
Nick Bosa was in Nashville to celebrate with his family and walk across the stage when the San Francisco 49ers selected him with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft.

Dwayne Haskins was the second Buckeye off the board, and the first one who wasn't in Nashville (as Bosa was). His reaction was a little different than the rest that will follow, as Haskins seemed to be a little frustrated that the New York Giants passed on him in favor of Duke gunslinger Daniel Jones, even though he was selected by the Washington Redskins with the No. 15 overall pick.

Big Ten Network was also at Haskins' draft party to document his draft moment.

Next up was Parris Campbell, who was selected by the Indianapolis Colts with the No. 59 overall pick.

Terry McLaurin was reunited with Haskins in Washington, where the two Buckeyes will try and improve an offense that was largely stagnant last year.

Additionally, Michael Jordan is heading down I-71 to Cincinnati, where he will attempt to join Billy Price as starters on the Bengals offensive line that has struggled in recent years.

It was a pretty special weekend for the Buckeyes, who ended up with the second-most draft choices of any college, trailing just Alabama.
