Michigan led all schools with 11 players selected in the NFL draft at the end of last month, but could Ohio State’s seven draftees make a bigger impact as rookies next season?
ESPN’s group of NFL experts thinks so.
The outlet predicted the best rookie on each of the 32 NFL teams for the upcoming season and four Buckeyes made the list to just one former Wolverine.
Ohio State’s trio of first-round defensive backs — CB Marshon Lattimore (Saints), S Malik Hooker (Colts) and CB Gareon Conley (Raiders) — was listed, as was LB Raekwon McMillan, who was selected by the Dolphins in the second round.
Juuuuuust a few Buckeyes on this list… ?#DevelopedHere

Taco Charlton, taken in the first round by the Cowboys, was the only Michigan player — and only other Big Ten player — on the list.
