Ohio State Football Player Climbing the Drawing Boards

Ohio State’s football program has a strong track record of placing players in the NFL. Most of these players also end up having quite successful careers. They’ll also put some really good players in the NFL Draft this year, including a climber on the draft boards.

Garrett Wilson will be a guaranteed first-round pick. He will more than likely be one of the top ten picks. In fact, there are screenings I’ve seen that put it in the top five. He’s not the one soaring on the drawing boards. It would be his counterpart in crime, Chris Olave.

Olave has skyrocketed draft boards since his lightning-fast 40-yard sprint at the NFL Combine. It ran an unofficial 4.26 which was later changed to 4.39. He followed that up with a stellar workout on the Ohio State Football Program pro day.

Since then he has been meeting teams and showing teams why he deserves to be in the top ten. He can go all the way and is not just a deep guy. He can do so much more and showed it on tape while playing for the Buckeyes in his four years.

Good Olave go as high as 8th at the Falcons. There are plenty of teams that need a wide receiver, and Olave is exactly that. He’s not as good as Wilson, but he’s not that far behind. It’s pretty amazing to have two receivers in the top 10 talent in this draft from the same school.

We won’t know for a few weeks when either receiver will start their NFL career. Whoever drafts Olave will get a ridiculously good wide receiver who is a winner. At this point, I’d be shocked if he wasn’t caught in the top ten.
