There’s no doubt that Ohio State is set to lose a good number of players to the NFL Draft following its bowl game, but Elflein coming back would be a blessing to an already talented offensive line. He is great in protection and has until mid-January to make his decision, so he’s of course going to think long and hard about this.

Jumping to the NFL from college is a big step, and he’s not going to make that move unless he feels he is absolutely ready.
