Ohio State CB Eli Apple declares for NFL Draft

The Ohio State Buckeyes will be looking to build back up their talent for the 2016 season after their successful 2015 season. They have had a number of players already declare for the 2016 NFL Draft and the latest declaration came from the defensive side of the ball.

Cornerback Eli Apple announced via Twitter that he would be declaring for the 2016 NFL Draft. He becomes the fourth defensive player to declare in the last three days joining Tyvis Powell, Darron Lee, and Joey Bosa.

This season, Apple recorded 33 tackles, an interception, and seven pass deflections. He was part of one of the most intimidating defenses in the country this year as well.

He is one of the many Buckeyes leaving school this year and right now it looks like the Buckeyes will be returning only six starters for the 2016 season.
