Ohio State football’s 12 draftees will sign for a mind-blowing amount of money

Ohio State football head coach Urban Meyer got to sit back and smile at the 2016 NFL Draft last weekend, as 12 of his former Buckeyes players heard their names called.

Ten of the Ohio State football stars were selected in the first three rounds, with Joey Bosa and Ezekiel Elliott going in the top five.

Ohio State is obviously proud of its former athletes, so the Buckeyes official Twitter account sent out a graphic for those first ten players selected that shows they will be making a mind-blowing amount of money in their rookie contracts; a whopping $120 million.

The numbers speak for themselves.

Not only was the 2016 NFL Draft great for the former Ohio State football stars, you have to believe the Buckeyes recruiting staff will be hitting the trail with some extra confidence.
