Undrafted Ohio State Players Currently in the NFL

A look at the 12 former Buckeyes currently on rosters in the National Football League despite not being drafted out of college.

Ohio State has the most overall NFL draft picks (141) since the turn of the century. The Buckeyes also recently moved past USC to claim the top spot in all-time first-round selection with 82, following the latest draft.

That includes 18 first-round picks since 2009. OSU accounted for two of the top-three picks this past April in Chase Young and Jeff Okudah, with former Buckeye Joe Burrow going No. 1 after blossoming into a Heisman Trophy winner at LSU.

But not everyone gets drafted. There are roster spots with each of the 32 NFL franchises occupied by players that weren’t selected in any of the seven rounds. Per the beginning of August, Ohio State had the second-most alumni (63) of any college entering training camp.

Included in that group were 13 former Buckeyes that went undrafted (five this past spring) but have since been signed by a team. That list has now trimmed to 12 after the Pittsburgh Steelers released J.T. Barrett. See below:
