6-4, 199, WR,- Watch him close. If he can improve into a
starter he could be a Day Two Pick.
#2 J.K Dobbins-
5-10, 217, RB, Ohio State – Easy Day Two Pick.
#11 Austin Mack-
6-2, 215, WR– A well-rounded student-athlete, Austin Mack has made his mark on the field and in the community at Ohio State … a veteran of 34 career games, he is tops among returning wide receivers with 19 career starts … he was having the best statistical season of his career as a true junior in 2018 before a foot injury in late October ended his
#14 KJ Hill- 6’, 195, WR, Ohio State
– Hill is only 50 catches away from David Boston’s all time reception record of 192?.He has been the Slot guy with all the outside talent OSU has had. He will be moved outside this season will Victor. If he could break the OSU record he will not last long in this Draft.
He is probably a Day Two pick, as he is not a pure speed guy. He is good but not great speed. What he did at OSU was get open in pattern, in the slot, and catch everything thrown to him. This season he will be doing it outside against Number One and Number Two CBs. If he succeeds he could go early in the 2nd.
But he is still probably more of a Slot guy. “I don’t think there’s anything he doesn’t do. To me, he’s not going to be a Parris Campbell burner but there’s a lot of things that he does that Parris maybe didn’t do,” OSU WR coach Brian Hartline said. “And he’s being a great leader. Ke’s growing up and I think that it’s an absolute pleasure and we’re blessed to have him back this year. and I’m glad that he came back, to not only lead this group, stay on m hip and just get better. K.J. Hill’s in a phenomenal spot and he’s a staple right now in our receiver room.” They will be moving him more outside WR.

305, OC/OG- Jonah Jackson joined the Ohio State football program in the summer of 2019 as a graduate transfer following a four-year career at Rutgers … is expected to compete for a starting guard position along the offensive
#76 Branden Bowen-
6-7, 325, ORG-
Branden Bowen is a fifth-year senior who missed the entire 2018 season while recovering and rehabilitating a leg injury that he incurred in Game 6 of the 2017 season Maryland … Bowen practiced throughout the 2019 spring drills and he’s looking to pick up this where he left off in 2017: as a starter on the Ohio State offensive line … in 2017, Bowen battled through spring drills and fall camp and earned the right to start the opening game of the season, at right
#2 Chase Young- 6-5, 265, EDGE,
- Nice job stunting inside and finding a lane to the QB.
Great hands in rush. Plays with great leverage. He will be a top

*Brendon White- 6-2,
Brendon White enters his junior season coming off a breakout performance over the final five games of the 2018 campaign for the Big Ten and Rose Bowl champions … White was thrust into action during the first half of Ohio State’s game vs. Nebraska and went on to register a game- and career-high 13 tackles … had five or more tackles in each of Ohio State’s final five games and finished with 46 tackles on the season along with four tackles-for-loss, two pass break-ups and an interception … earned Defensive Most Valuable Player honors with eight tackles, two tackles-for-loss and an interception on a two-point conversion pass vs. Washington in the Rose Bowl … when he started the 2019 Rose Bowl game, White and his father, William (1985), became just the second father-son duo to start in the game, joining Howard “Hopalong” Cassidy (1955) and Craig (1976) … had a fourth-quarter interception vs. No. 4 Michigan that he returned for 49 yards to go along with five tackles … played in five games in 2017 as a true freshman while seeing time at both wide receiver and in the secondary … was one of nine from the 2017 recruiting class to graduate from high school early and enroll in classes at Ohio State in January … is majoring in sport

#96 Carlos Davis- 6-2, 325,
DL- This dude is a beast. He hits and hurts QB with some
nice regularity. He was near unstoppable against Colorado, lined up
right on the Nose and being consistently doubled. There are not a
lot of Nose Tackles who can two-gap, and burst into the backfield as
much as this guy. I could not have more impressed with him against
Carlos Davis, who has already earned his degree from Nebraska, has started every game this season at defensive end. He has totaled 15 tackles, the most among Nebraska's defensive linemen. Davis had four tackles and a fumble recovery in the season opener against South Alabama and a 12-yard sack the next week at Colorado. Against Northern Illinois, Davis tied his career high with six tackles and two TFLs, while setting a career high with 1.5 sacks as Nebraska kept the Huskies out of the end zone. Davis had a TFL for the third consecutive week at Illinois as part of a four-tackle effort.
New defensive line coach Tony Tuioti is already earning his paycheck on the recruiting trail and has created an immediate sense of family among his new charges in Lincoln. He could also have the biggest impact when it comes to showing NFL scouts that the Cornhuskers have prospects worth selecting next year.
The Tuioti/Chinander philosophy is somewhat of a double-edged sword on the surface. Nebraska runs a 3-4 scheme, but their roster is full of defensive linemen who can be swapped across the front. Davis is a perfect example of that. At 6-foot-2 and 325 pounds, he seems to project better at nose tackle than a defensive end. However, Nebraska fans can expect him on the edges trying to accomplish what Freedom Akinmoladun struggled with during 2018: generating consistent pressure on the outside. Don’t be surprised to occasionally see him slide to the interior to eat up
#79 Darrion Daniels-
6-4, 315, 5-Tech- He is a grad transfer who really looks the
part more than his two DL teammates in their Odd front. All three
DLs will be Drafted in 2020.
A graduate transfer from Oklahoma State, Darrion Daniels has started every game this season as a team captain. He has 12 tackles on the season, including four in his Husker debut against South Alabama. Daniels had a Nebraska-high five tackles against Northern Illinois, including career highs of two TFLs and 1.5 sacks. He added two more tackles the next week at
Daniels has been running his mouth in the best of ways since he transferred in from Oklahoma State. A touted nose tackle, he came to Lincoln looking to shove his baby brother Damion aside in favor of playing time. All reports out of camp indicate that Darrion has done just that. At 6-foot-3 and 320 pounds, he’s built a hint differently from Carlos Davis, but much like the fellow senior, he could be seen swapping
#94 Khalil Davis-
6-2, 315, 5-Tech- They have a
huge D-line of three 5th year seniors. All three find the ball and
play in a two-gap system that beat up Colorado pretty good. He
already has two sacks on the season which is pretty good for a
Khalil Davis, who has already earned his degree from Nebraska, has started every game this season at defensive end, the first three starts of his career. Davis has totaled 12 tackles, including four tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. He had a nine-yard sack in the season opener against South Alabama and had five solo tackles and a pair of TFLs at Colorado. Davis made one tackle in the win against Northern Illinois before totaling three tackles, including a four-yard sack at
Another player giving the Nebraska defensive front a familial feel, Davis – brother of Carlos – was one of the most disruptive Blackshirts in 2018. With 10 tackles for a loss, three sacks and a forced fumble, it’s no shock why Tuioti wants to get as many of his chippy big men snaps as possible. No. 94 is somewhat lighter than Darrion Daniels or his aforementioned brother at 310 pounds. However, that could aid him tremendously as an edge rusher who’d be a load to handle along with a blitzing linebacker. All of this versatility up front must, of course, be combined with the reinforcement of solid fundamentals. Otherwise, Nebraska may thrive as a team, but these three may not make a strong enough impression to hear their name called next
#7 Mohamed Barry-
6-1, 230, LB- He is fast tot he ball outside, but he has to
get bigger and stronger.
No one can question Barry's intensity or desire to deliver pain. However, his size (6-1, 230) may be what bites him at the next level. Two extremely early comparisons would be 2019 sixth-round picks David Long Jr. (Tennessee Titans) and Akron's Ulysees Gilbert III (Pittsburgh). What Barry must do during his senior season – and what he’ll likely have every opportunity to do – is show he can dominate some of the best offensive linemen in the nation. Fortunately, he plays in a conference that boasts just that. A cherry on top of the metaphorical sundae would be showing off as an edge rusher. However, we likely see him as the force who takes advantage of his defensive linemen opening lanes between guards and
#21 Lamar Jackson- 6-3, 215,
CB- He has NFL size, but has to prove he has NFL
Jackson has had NFL dreams ever since he stepped foot onto campus. If he' going to make them come true, he has to finish what he started during the middle of last season. After returning from a benching versus Purdue, Jackson found a mean streak that made teams opt to pick on Dicaprio Bootle instead. Keep in mind, Bootle had one of the best seasons of any Husker in terms of pass breakups. Clearly, offensive coordinators aren't keen on testing Jackson.
He has impressive size (6-3) for a cornerback but height doesn’t necessarily equate to an elite NFL defensive back. The highest pick with comparable size in the 2019 draft is Houston Texans second-round pick Lonnie
Johnson, Jr. (6-2, 215) from Kentucky. Johnson turned in testing numbers that Jackson should be able to mirror as long as he maximizes his potential on and off the field over the next year. It's unlikely Jackson will be taken as Johnson but he may be too good of an athlete to pass
