The NFL combine has begun in Indianapolis and 10 Ohio State products are on hand. Only Alabama and Clemson had more players invited. A lot of eyes will be on quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who rewrote the Ohio State and Big Ten single season record books and is projected by most analysts as the number 1 quarterback in the draft. One such analyst is Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network, who talked not only about Haskins but a handful of other prospects on a conference call yesterday. He compares Haskins and Heisman winning quarterback Kylar Murray of Oklahoma, who also is expected to be a first round pick. You can listen to what Jeremiah had to say here.
In addition to Haskins, the other Buckeyes who will be in Indianapolis this week are projected No. 1 pick, defensive end Nick Bosa, wide receivers Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin, defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones, offensive linemen Michael Jordan and Isaiah Prince, defensive back Kendall Sheffield and running back Mike Weber.
Buckeyes Add A Lineman
As Ryan Day prepares to open his first spring practice as a head coach, he and the Buckeyes added another player Monday. Offensive lineman Jonah Jackson announced on Twitter to Letterman Row that he's decided to transfer to Ohio State.
Jackson (6'4, 305) picked Ohio State after also taking visits to Oklahoma and Texas. He was not only a starter at Rutgers last season but a team captain and he brings versatility, having played significantly at both guard and center. He has one season of eligibility left and as a graduate transfer, he is eligible immediately.
