  Urban Meyer watched the first round of the NFL draft like a proud father. He wishes he could have been with Chase Young, Jeff Okudah and Damon Arnette as they celebrated their selection as first-round NFL draft picks Thursday night. After former Buckeye Joe Burrow was the first overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, Young went No. 2 to Washington and Okudah No. 3 to Detroit. Arnette was a surprise first-rounder, going to the Las Vegas Raiders at No. 19. Meyer couldn't be with his former players. He remains in Florida because of the COVID-19 pandemic. There's no central draft location to attend, anyway. But his heart was with them. These were the last group of Ohio State players who will have played a majority of their careers under Meyer, who was succeeded last season by Ryan Day.

"That's what I miss the most - not being there with them and giving them a big hug," Meyer told The Dispatch on Friday before the draft's second and third rounds. "It's a life change. It's going to impact their families for a long time. "It's also a reward for incredibly hard work." Meyer emphasized the work. It goes without saying that no one becomes a first-round draft pick without putting in effort. But what does that really mean at Ohio State? "My goal and part of our culture is to embrace the discomfort," said Meyer, now an assistant athletic director at OSU. "And for those people that don't like the discomfort of hard work...greatness is very hard." - Columbus Dispatch
