The NFL draft is now only two weeks away and it's becoming more and more obvious that three members of last year's Ohio State secondary are going to be picked in round one. Since declaring for the draft, safety Malik Hooker and defensive back Marshon Lattimore have consistently been ranked among the top five to 10 prospects. Gareon Conley, meanwhile, saw his draft stock soar after an impressing NFL combine at the end of February. NFL draft analyst Mike Mayock of the NFL network has Lattimore ranked as his number one defensive back prospect, with Hooker number three and Conley number four.
The three soon-to-be drafted Buckeyes were featured Wednesday on the NFL Network, in a segment that included the analysis of Philadelphia Eagles safety and former Buckeye Malcolm Jenkins. As you might expect, Jenkins was very complimentary to the Buckeye prospects and declared Ohio State "DBU." Urban Meyer sent out the segment on his Twitter account. You can check out the segment here.
