A sizable collection of former Ohio State players will get the chance to showcase their abilities in front of NFL scouts, general managers and decision-makers at the end of the month as 11 Buckeyes earned invites to this year's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
On the defensive side of the ball, Ohio State will be represented by cornerback Damon Arnette, safety Jordan Fuller, defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton, linebacker Malik Harrison as well as a pair of unanimous All-Americans in cornerback Jeff Okudah and defensive end Chase Young.
On the offensive side of the ball, running back J.K. Dobbins, wide receiver K.J. Hill, offensive lineman Jonah Jackson, wide receiver Austin Mack and wide receiver Ben Victor all earned invites.
The total of 11 invites is tied with Michigan for the second-most in the nation among all college football teams, behind only LSU with 16.
Ohio State has now had at least 10 players invited to the combine for each of the last three years. Alabama is the only other school that's matched that mark.
Notable Buckeyes who missed out on combine invites were offensive lineman Branden Bowen, defensive tackle Robert Landers, defensive lineman Jashon Cornell and tight end Rashod Berry.
The NFL Scouting Combine will take place in Indianapolis from Feb. 24 through March 1.
