The Ohio State Buckeyes have a ton of players going into the NFL this year. This means they have a large number of players that participated in the NFL Scouting Combine this past weekend.
The Combine wrapped up on Monday with the defensive back group drills and the NFL released a medal count for the “NFL Combine Olympics.” The medals were given out for first, second, third place in different events for each position group.
The Buckeyes took home five “gold medals”, four “silver medals”, and three “bronze medals.” They were joined by seven other schools on the podium and, surprisingly, only one SEC school made the cut with Harvard even having a better showing in Indianapolis than that one school.

This just goes to show that it doesn’t really matter what school you come from. If you can compete at the next level, you will be able to show that whenever you want.
For the Buckeyes, this could end up meaning that their roster will be hurt in 2015 after losing so much of their talent to the NFL.
