Ohio State is one of the best programs in college football for its ability to recruit some of the nation’s top players and then deliver a national-championship contender year after year.
However, another area where the program excels is in its ability to prepare players for the NFL and beyond.
Ohio State football’s Twitter account released a video on Friday that showed how the team’s players prepare for their futures beyond college football. The video features former Ohio State wide receiver Joey Galloway, former NFL player and executive Ray Farmer, and former New York Jets executive Rod Graves giving Ohio State players advice about their futures.
Here is the video:
Whenever the Buckeyes make that transition to the @NFL, they will be prepared — just as they are with all phases of life.

Throughout the video, there are shots of Ohio State players as they listen to lectures from Galloway, Farmer and Graves. The video ends with Graves talking about Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
“Coach Meyer has always demonstrated, ever since I’ve known him, he’s always had a sincere interest about his players,” Graves said in the video. “And at the end of the day, it’s always about the young men that you’re preparing for tomorrow. Whether they go on to have professional football careers or not, he prepares men for tomorrow’s world, and he’s done a great job of that everywhere he’s gone.
“It’s just a great feeling when you arrive on campus, you’re in a place that’s a special place, and that’s what I think about when I come to Ohio State.”
