Two more Ohio State players announced their intentions to enter the 2016 NFL Draft Monday.

Cornerback Eli Apple and wide receiver/return specialist Jalin Marshall make seven Buckeyes underclassmen who have declared. Wide receiver Michael Thomas and safety Vonn Bell, both highly regarded prospects, have yet to announce their decisions.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott, defensive lineman Joey Bosa, quarterback Cardale Jones, safety Tyvis Powell and linebacker Darron Lee had previously announced their NFL intentions.

CBSSports.com ranks Bosa as the No. 1 overall prospect and has Elliott, Lee, Thomas and Bell in the top 50.

This year’s underclass entry deadline is Jan. 18.

    I can see some of the top recruits reconsidering their commitments and taking another look at the Buckeyes.

    Have to say, as one who beleives in education – as in get one get a job and pay taxes, I would also leave to avoid that big time torn acl or other injury that may cripple your NFL career before it starts.
    Hey they can always finish up ed with on line courses, et al so go for it.

    Interesting these two left, IMO they’re day 2picks or 3rd round picks at best. They may even fall to round 4
