 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Ohio State football's defense had a lot to boast about Thursday night. When the Washington Redskins selected Chase Young with the No. 2 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, it made the Buckeyes the first program with a defensive player taken in the top five picks of three consecutive drafts. The Browns selected cornerback Denzel Ward No. 4 in 2018 and the San Francisco 49ers selected defensive end Nick Bosa No. 2 last season. Young's selection also allowed Ohio State to pull into the lead for all-time first-round draft picks with 82. The Buckeyes went into the night tied with USC.

Jeff Okudah's selection at No. 3 by the Detroit Lions and Damon Arnette's selection at No. 19 by the Las Vegas Raiders extended the Buckeyes' new lead in that category. The selection of LSU (and former OSU) quarterback Joe Burrow, Young and Okudah marked the first time in the common draft era that three former teammates have gone with the first three picks. Prior to the draft, Young was asked on ESPN's GameDay about Okudah's prediction that he will win the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2020. "Jeff is like my blood brother," Young said. "Jeff is another elite player, another lock-down corner. We just lean on each other sometimes, if we ever get overwhelmed by what's going on. "I never say too much. I'm just going to let everything play itself out." - Cleveland Plain Dealer
