As the Ohio State Buckeyes football program transitions from the end of the Urban Meyer era to the beginning of Ryan Day’s tenure as head coach, a number of former Buckeyes are hoping to transition to the National Football League as well.
Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft will get underway on Thursday, April 25 at 8:00 p.m. EDT and will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN, NFL Network, ESPN Deportes, and NFL.com/Watch. On Friday, April 26, Rounds 2 and 3 will kick off at 7:00 p.m. EDT on the same networks, and Day 3 will have Rounds 4-7, beginning at 12 noon EDT.
Ohio State enters the draft process with two players practically guaranteed of being picked in the first half of the first round in defensive end Nick Bosa and quarterback Dwayne Haskins. While the former is still very much in the conversation for the first overall pick, the latter has reportedly been slipping down draft boards for no real logical or apparent reason.
In addition, wide receiver Parris Campbell perhaps did the most to help himself leading up to the draft of any player hoping to hear his name called. While the speedy WR could be selected late on Thursday night, if he isn’t, he will likely be one of the first playmakers off of the board on Friday.
Other former Buckeyes hoping to learn where they will continue their playing career this week are defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones, running back Mike Weber, cornerback Kendall Sheffield; receivers Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon; offensive linemen Michael Jordan, Isaiah Prince, Malcolm Pridgeon, Demetrius Knox, and Brady Taylor; linebacker Dante Booker; and kicker Sean Nuernberger.
