Florida used to have more busts than any school by a wide margin. WR was a joke position with Florida pro players.
Scout.com listed Ohio State as the best pro pipeline for WR's and CB's in the NFL. Pretty fast positions eh?
WR- Cris Carter- Joey Galloway- Terry Glenn- Michael Jenkins- Santonio Holmes- Ted Ginn Jr- Drew Carter- David Boston (pre insanity)
Cb- Nate Clements- Antoine Winfield- Shawn Springs- Chris Gamble- Ashton Youbouty- Ahmed Plummer (injury ended career)
On the team right now Malcom Jenkins is a Junior and considered a top 15 pick. Brian Hartline and Brian Robiskie will most certainly have some role in the NFL. Hartline is an athletic freak. Ray Small is also a likely pro player. Also just like schools like USC and Michigan they have the best talent. Now with Tressel and his great coaching staff they are loading up.
The list at other positions is pretty awesome also. Nick Mangold is a 2nd year Center and a star. Will Smith is a pro bowl DE. Orlando Pace is a HOF player. Mike Doss and Donnie Nickey are five year pros. LeCharles Bentley was a pro bowl center before two bad knee injuries. Aj Hawk is a stud on one of the best defenses in the NFL. Bobby Carpenter was a first round pick last year at LB. Will Allen is a starting safety with Tampa. Anthony Schlegal plays alot with the Bengals sadly
Rob Sims starts for the Seahawks at guard and is considered a future star. 2nd year player.
Qb is the one historical position that Ohio State just never had really compete well in the NFL. Rb recently hasn't been great because of Maurice being counted on so heavily.
I'm sure people are utterly sick of my OSU stuff. I'll stop now lol.
