38 NFL scouts attended Ohio State informational session

Nine Ohio State players gave up their remaining college football eligibility to enter the 2016 NFL Draft, and though very few of those decisions caught NFL scouts off guard, the rules in place make it so those scouts have to play catch up on early entries.

Maybe to help that process — or maybe to save himself 50 phone calls — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer held a scout summit of sorts last week in the Buckeyes’ training facility. Meyer, strength coach Mickey Marotti and other coaches and staff members were available to answer questions on Ohio State’s draft prospects.

Various projections have Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa as a top three pick and at least five Buckeyes as potential first-round picks, and though just about everybody has a draft guide and a guess at this time of year, that 38 scouts showed up to talk to Meyer and others says the buzz is legit.

Ohio State’s top senior prospects are Taylor Decker, Braxton Miller, Adolphus Washington and Nick Vannett.

Bosa, Ezekiel Elliott, Vonn Bell, Michael Thomas, Darron Lee and Eli Apple are the biggest names among the underclassmen who declared. That was one hell of a recruiting class Meyer and his staff put together in 2013.

    Mike McCarthy is jealous of that talent compared to his Packers. Other than Rodgers, he has nothing. Nothing.

    Good Idea by Urban. If theres one thing he is even though he has a slew of bad traits, it’s that he is a leader and people organizer.

    I would be thrilled to get a couple of these players on the squad. That is a great class for one school to have coming into the draft.

    That’s awesome. Sets time aside to help his players in getting to the next level. Even though he’s losing them early.

    Urban Meyer looks like Pee Wee Herman. Therefore his new nickname shall be Pee Wee Urban.

    Makes you wonder why OSU didn’t win the championship.

    Great college coaches recruit 24/7. The more players that get drafted, the better for future recruiting. The rich get richer. Now you know why great college coaches don’t necessarily win in the NFL. In the NFL, the draft is set up so that the poor get richer.

    This Michigan fan will give credit when it’s due. That 2013 class was one hell of a class they put together. Glad to see them go.

    Best team in college football, and didn’t make the playoff. As great a coach as Urban is, this year was a disaster, no way this team should have lost a game. Period.
