Perhaps no player in this year’s class helped himself more during the pre-draft process than Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell. After putting up an historically impressive 4.31-second 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine, while also displaying incredible body control and hands during position drills, Campbell worked himself into one of the most sought-after skill players in the draft.

That hard work paid off tonight as Campbell was selected 59th overall by the Indianapolis Colts.

In his senior season as a Buckeye, Campbell accounted for 1,063 receiving yards out of the H-back position, and went for 12 touchdowns on 90 receptions. His yardage total made him only the fifth OSU WR to eclipse 1,000 yards, and his 90 receptions are a new program record.

The Akron native earned First Team All-Big Ten honors in 2018, having picked up second and third team accolades in 2017 and 2016 respectively.

Land-Grant Holy Land will have much more on the Campbell selection later tonight, and throughout the draft weekend.
