In last week's 2015 NFL Draft, Ohio State sent five players to the NFL. Two more signed as uindrafted free agents immediately after the draft finished.
The biggest storyline for the Buckeyes throughout the draft was defensive tackle Michael Bennett. Before the draft many thought Bennett would get taken in the second or third round, Bennett slid all the way to the sixth round before being picked by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The highest Buckeye to go in the draft was wide receiver Devin Smith who was picked in the second round by the New York Jets. Tight end Jeff Heuerman was next up, going No. 92 overall in the third round to the Denver Broncos.
Cornerback Doran Grant, a St. Vincent-St. Mary grad, was drafted in the fourth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. The last Buckeye taken in the draft was wide receiver Evan Spencer, picked No. 187 overall in the sixth round by the Washington Redskins.To read more or comment...
