Former Ohio State receivers went back-to-back-to-back.

With Jameson Williams going No. 12 overall after a trade up by the Detroit Lions, three straight former Ohio State wide receivers were taken in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Williams, who played two seasons at Ohio State before transferring to Alabama for his final collegiate season, watched his former Buckeye teammates Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave be selected at No. 10 and No. 11 overall before he was selected at No. 12.

This marks the second time in three years that former Ohio State players have been selected with three consecutive picks in the first round after Joe Burrow, Chase Young and Jeff Okudah were selected with the first three picks of the 2020 NFL Draft.
