Ohio State Football: Boom Stays In-State; Herron Goes 191st To Cincinnati Bengals

Daniel "Boom" Herron is one of the newest Cincinnati Bengals.

After a senior season that saw its fair share of frustrations and difficulties, Ohio State's most reliable rushing threat of the past two seasons heard his name called in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the home state Cincinnati Bengals.

Herron, who immediately paid dividends for the Buckeyes upon returning from a five game suspension in 2011, will join a back field that's wide open with the free agency of last year's starter Cedric Benson. In addition to having a chance to potentially make an instant impact for the 2011 playoff participant Bengals, Herron will be able to do so with friends and family on looking as he stays in his home state of Ohio.

With Herron off the board, the only Buckeye expected to be drafted that remains available is center Michael Brewster. With but a round and a half to go, it'll be interesting to see where Brewster lands.

Best of luck to Boom in this next chapter of his life.
