Several Buckeyes Participate In Ohio State Pro Day

By March 22, 2023 (6:04 pm)Football

With a little more than a month remaining until the 2023 NFL Draft, 14 former Buckeyes tried to boost their draft stocks at Ohio State’s pro day on Wednesday.

As 30 of the NFL’s 32 franchises sent representatives to view Ohio State’s draft-eligible players, along with Ohio State club player and cornerback Kellyn Gerenstein and Brown running back Allen Smith, several Buckeyes registered solid pro days. Quarterback C.J. Stroud and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba dazzled scouts during the throwing and route-running session, while several other players displayed their skills in a variety of drills. Not only did NFL scouts benefit from seeing on-the-field work from the players, but they also gained insight into the players’ measurements and other major factors that go into the draft process.

Safety Tanner McCalister registered the fastest 40-yard dash time with a 4.44 while defensive tackle Taron Vincent completed 26 reps of the 225-pound bench press — the most of competing prospects. Below are the full results of the pro day, as provided by the Ohio State athletics department.
