A whole bunch of Ohio State NFL draft hopefuls were among the players working out at the Cleveland Browns’ local pro day on Monday.
The event, organized for the Browns to get a closer look at prospects from around the state of Ohio, heavily featured the Buckeyes. Out of the 40 players invited, 12 were from Ohio State.
Denzel Ward, the school’s premier prospect, was one of the players in attendance. He’s a potential top-10 pick. Also in attendance were DE Jalyn Holmes, TE Marcus Baugh, LB Chris Worley, defensive linemen Tracy Sprinkle and Michael Hill and safeties Damon Webb and Erick Smith.
The Browns also hosted four former Ohio State walk-ons: WR Elijaah Goins, LB Zach Turnure, CB Trevon Forte and DL Nick Seme.
“Local pro days also serve as an opportunity for teams to work out lesser-known prospects from Ohio schools such as Akron, Kent State, Cincinnati, John Carroll and Findlay,” the Browns said in a statement.
The Browns have the Nos. 1 and 4 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, which begins on Thursday, April 26.
