There are 12 different former Ohio State Buckeyes in NFL Mock Drafts. And it looks like the program could be on the verge of doing something it has never done before.
How Will Ohio State Replace… WR Binjimen Victor
Binjimen Victor came to Ohio State from Coconut Creek High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he was ranked the No. 12 wide receiver in the 2016 class and the No. 97 player overall.
