Ohio State has most players drafted in the firs

Ohio State

The New Orleans Saints took former Ohio State safety Vonn Bell with the No. 61 pick in the NFL Draft this evening. 

That pick gives the Buckeyes a tie of an NFL Draft record. Bell is the seventh Ohio State player to be taken in first two rounds, tying Tennessee and USC, which did the same in 2000 and '08, respectively.

The Buckeyes are far from done, too. They could have eight more players selected over the next two days.
