12 New Buckeyes in the NFL

In what can be described as a come back year for Ohio State in the NFL draft and Free Agency Market considering the past few years lack of Buckeyes making the leap to the NFL. Bottom line Ohio State has never had a problem getting guys drafted or in the NFL in general. They rank 1st in draft picks since the NCAA went to a maximum of 85 scholarships. They are top 3 All time in drafted players. So lets look at where all the Buckeyes ended up.


Ryan Shazier- 1st Round Pick #15 by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bradley Roby- 1st Round Pick #31 by the Denver Broncos.
Carlos Hyde- 2nd Round Pick #57 by the San Francisco 49ers.
Jack Mewhort- 2nd Round Pick #59 by the Indianapolis Colts.
Corey Linsley- 5th Round Pick #161 by the Green Bay Packers.
Christian Bryant- 7th Round Pick #241 by the St. Louis Rams.


CJ Barnett- New York Giants
Drew Basil- Atlanta Falcons
Philly Brown- Carolina Panthers
Andrew Norwell- Carolina Panthers
Chris Fields- Washington Redskins
Marcus Hall- Indianapolis Colts


Kenny Guiton- Headed to a tryout with the Buffalo Bills.
Pitt Brown- Possibly headed to the Steelers for a tryout.
Jordan Hall- Headed to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a tryout.

Good luck to all of the Former Buckeyes where ever their careers take them. Once a Buckeye always a Buckeye.


  1. Of the free agents, who do you think has the best chance of playing this fall? I’d say Norwell, Hall and Philly Brown (in that order). Of course if Kenny gets a real chance, then he’ll probably win a superbowl is 2020.

  2. Yeah OLman seem to have a leg up to play from being an UFA… so I agree with you there.

    If Kenny can make the Buffalo Bills he has a legit shot. EJ Manuel is not an NFL QB IMO.

    Rooting for Basil to have a good NFL career. Could be the first great PK of the “new rules” era.
