The college football season may be right around the corner but the NFL is right there too as most teams are getting ready to start their NFL Training Camps. Yes, players like Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas are not in camp at the moment as they are both holding out for new contracts, but those will surely get sorted out sooner rather than later.

Ohio State has done its fair share of loading up NFL rosters through the years and this year 62 former Buckeyes will be part of training camp rosters, looking to play at the next level.

With 62 players spread out over 28 different teams, the Buckeyes really can stake a claim as being one of the biggest talent producers in all of college football. Of the 62 players that are in camps, 55 of them were coached by former head coach Urban Meyer for at least one season and 13 players off of the 2018 Big Ten championship team are on rosters currently.

Four position groups are of particular note as the Buckeyes have double-digit players at wide receiver (10), offensive line (10), defensive line (11) and defensive back (13).
