Ohio State sets the record for most picks in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft with 10

The Buckeyes have set a new mark for NFL Draft success

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

It was expected that the Ohio State Buckeyes would be involved in some history during the 2016 NFL Draft. They certainly made some on Friday night, after Michael Thomas and Vonn Bell were selected in the second round, and Adolphus WashingtonBraxton Miller, and Nick Vannett were drafted in the third round.

With the picks of Washington and Miller, the Buckeyes have the most picks in the first three rounds in a single draft in the common era. The Buckeyes had Joey Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, and Eli Apple all go in the first 10 picks of the draft. Taylor Decker, and Darron Lee also went in the first round.

This is certainly a great selling point for Urban Meyer and his program, who have had quite the successful past couple of seasons with a College Football Playoff National Championship, and a Fiesta Bowl victory.

The great thing is, there are surely more Buckeyes to come as the NFL Draft moves along.

Go Bucks!
