Ohio State safety Vonn Bell has become the latest Buckeye to declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, according to a tweet from Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman.
JR safety Vonn Bell leaving #OhioState early too. That makes 9 Buckeyes jumping to the NFL..almost as many the 10 that LSU lost 3 yrs ago.

A junior and former four-star recruit from northwestern Georgia, Bell accumulated 175 tackles with nine interceptions and a pick 6 in three years with Ohio State. He is a ferocious tackler and solid athlete, having shown the ability to play both corner and safety.
Just where he’ll end up in the draft won’t be known until after his performance at February’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, but consider Powell a near-lock to be drafted on Day 1 or Day 2.
