Conley, the former Ohio State cornerback, originally was going to be one of four Big Ten players to attend the draft in the City of Brotherly Love, but his plans have apparently changed. Conley was originally projected as a first-round pick by most draft analysts, but there is now uncertainty surrounding the Buckeye.
With Conley skipping the draft in person, the Buckeyes will still be represented by CB Marshon Lattimore, who is expected to be a top-10 pick.
