  Draft Scout by Conference

  Offensive lineman Thayer Munford has earned the Block O jersey honor for Ohio State this year, though he won't wear No. 0 because of uniform number rules. The Buckeyes established the Block O uniform tradition last year. Defensive end Jonathon Cooper was the first recipient and proudly wore No. 0 as his uniform number. The award is a tribute to Buckeye legend Bill Willis for his toughness, accountability and character.

Munford, who wears No. 75, can't wear No. 0 because offensive linemen must wear jerseys with numbers 50-79. Munford will instead wear a special patch that will read, "Block 0 Recipient." "It's a blessing to be out here," Munford said after practice Saturday, according to an OSU news release. "I love this team and will do everything I can to uphold the tradition of what the Block O means in our program." Munford will be a four-year starter in 2021. He turned down a chance to enter the NFL draft to return for the extra year of eligibility offered by the NCAA because of COVID-19. At the time, he said he did it primarily to finish his degree, which the sport industry major earned in June. "The Block O is a badge of honor in our program," coach Ryan Day said. "It represents everything that is important to us - fighting to be elite in all that we do. It's also about accountability and a blue-collar personality. When I think of Thayer Munford, that's what comes to mind." - Columbus Dispatch
