Ohio State is without a doubt the absolute best place in the country to be a wide receiver.
Recruitment rankings? It doesn’t explain how the former Buckeyes finished in the top four among wide receivers on Thursday night in the NFL Draft, with Garrett Wilson landing at 10, Chris Olave landing at 11 and Jameson Williams landing at 12. . Frankly, Drake London in front of all of them is laughable, but NFL teams often do stupid things, so that’s what it is.
The craziest thing is that the guy coming out next year at Smith-Njigba is probably the best of the whole bunch.
Before I continue my story of the past twenty years as a Buckeye, let’s talk about the NFL Draft, which was another massive success for Ohio State, especially when it comes to being THE destination for wide receiver prospects.
Oh, and another major note: This is the second time in three years that Ohio State has had three former players selected back-to-back in the first round, following Joe Burrow-Chase Young-Jeff Okudah two seasons ago. Yet another insane statistic in this golden age we live in.
