Ohio State didn't have a player taken in the first round of the NFL Draft this year, but look for that to change in 2014. Taking a look at various mock drafts, cornerback Bradley Roby is considered by just about everyone a first-round pick.
Roby, a redshirt junior, is coming off a season in which he had 63 tackles, two interceptions and 17 passes defended. But where is he landing in mock drafts?To read more or comment...

Ohio State had just three football players taken in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins was the first Buckeye drafted. He was taken in the second round by the New York Giants with the 49th pick.
Defensive leader John Simon was taken in the fourth round by the Baltimore Ravens with the 129th pick. Right tackle Reid Fragel was the final Buckeye picked on Saturday going 240th overall to the Cincinnati Bengals.
That's the fewest number of Buckeyes taken in the draft since three were picked in 2008. Last four Buckeyes, led by offensive tackle Mike Adams, were drafted.
Several other Ohio State players landed on teams as undrafted free agents. Most notably, fullback Zach Boren, cornerback Travis Howard and safety Orhian Johnson all signed with the Houston Texans. Tight end Jake Stoneburner was picked up by the Green Bay Packers. Linebacker Etienne Sabino signed on with the New York Giants and defensive end Nathan Williams was picked up by the Minnesota Vikings.To read more or comment...

COLUMBUS: Say this much for Urban Meyer: He doesn't mind putting pressure on himself, his Ohio State staff or his players.
"I would be disappointed if we're not the best offense in the Big Ten," Meyer said Saturday after the Buckeyes' annual spring intrasquad scrimmage.
What a difference a year makes when it comes to Ohio State's attack. It was early last spring when Meyer, in his first year as head coach of the Buckeyes, famously called the formative first steps of the players adapting to his no-huddle, spread attack as "a clown show."
Meyer saved a lot of his vitriol then for a group of wide receivers who he said didn't work hard enough, weren't serious about learning plays and didn't come prepared to get better.
No wonder receivers coach Zach Smith had a lot of sleepless nights.To read more or comment...
