With the end of the 2018 college football season now in the rear-view mirror, plenty of college players have made the decision to leave school early and enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

On Friday, the NFL released its list of undergraduate players entering the 2019 NFL Draft.

Of the 103 undergrads who have declared or been ruled eligible for the draft, six are from the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The six are defensive end Nick Bosa, quarterback Dwayne Haskins, offensive guard Michael Jordan, defensive back Kendall Sheffield, running back Mike Webber, and defensive lineman Dre'Mont Jones.

Bosa and Haskins are two of the most highly-touted prospects at their positions in the 2019 NFL Draft. Bosa played only sparingly in 2018 due to an injury. Haskins went on to set and break numerous school and conference records, finishing third in the Heisman trophy voting.

Most analysts have Bosa going No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals, while Haskins is the consensus first quarterback to be selected.

Jones is also graded as a top defensive lineman, with Tankathon projecting him as a first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Chargers. Tankathon similarly projected that Jordan would go in the third round to the New York Jets.

The Buckeyes finished the 2018 season with a 13-1 record that included a Big Ten title, and a win over Washington in the Rose Bowl.
