Buckeyes Break Draft Record

The Buckeyes are the king of the first round.

Ohio State and USC entered the night tied for the most first-round selections all-time, but just two picks into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Buckeyes moved to the top.

The Washington Redskins' selection of Chase Young with the No. 2 overall pick gave the Buckeyes 82 first-round picks all-time, moving them one pick ahead of USC's total of 81 first-round selections.

Ohio State finished the night with 84 all-time first-round picks, as Jeff Okudah was selected No. 3 overall by the Detroit Lions and Damon Arnette drafted No. 19 overall by the Las Vegas Raiders. USC had just one player selected in the first round on Thursday night – Austin Jackson, who was selected No. 18 overall by the Miami Dolphins – bringing them to 82 first-round picks all-time.
