When the NFL scouting combine continued Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, former Ohio State wide receivers put on a show ahead of the April 25-27 NFL draft.

Among the group, a trio of Buckeyes — Parris Campbell, Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin — started fast and finished strong.

OSU’s three products performed atop the position in the 40-yard dash and spilled the momentum into drills, pacing a versatile group.

Campbell (5-11 7/8, 205) stole the show, leaping out to an explosive start with measurements in the vertical (40 inches) and broad (11-3) jumps.
