The Ohio State Buckeyes have already lost a lot of junior talent to the NFL and now you can add another player onto that list. According to a report from ESPN’s Joe Schad, Ohio State wide receiver Michael Thomas will forgo his senior season to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Thomas is a physically intimidating wide receiver that many believe will be a force at the next level. He stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 210 pounds. During the 2015 season, Thomas hauled in 56 passes for 781 yards and nine touchdowns.
As the draft approaches, it will be interesting to see where Thomas falls. He is currently projected to go in the top four rounds.
