With those 10 selections, Ohio State tied with Alabama for the most players selected in this year's draft. Ohio State is the only school to have 10 picks in each of the last two drafts, and the first to accomplish that feat since Alabama had 10 picks three years in a row from 2017-19.
It's the seventh time Ohio State has had at least 10 players chosen.
Ohio State has now had at least seven players selected in six consecutive NFL drafts, the second-longest streak among all schools behind only Alabama. Ohio State has had 55 NFL draft picks in the past five years, also the second-most among all schools in that span behind only Alabama (58).
By the end of Saturday night, all 15 Ohio State players who played for the Buckeyes in 2020 and participated in a pre-draft pro day were on NFL rosters, as five others signed contracts as undrafted free agents:
