Ohio State Wide Receivers Had A Tough Day At The Combine

While all three played key roles for the Buckeyes last season, none of Ohio State's trio of NFL draft hopeful wide receivers were able to impress during today's session at the NFL Scouting Combine.

K.J. Hill, Benjamin Victor and Austin Mack all failed to dazzle in the 40-yard dash. Hill and Victor both ran 4.6 flat, with Mack marginally better at 4.59.

Additionally, none of them were able to distinguish themselves during other testing. Hill was the best of the trio on the bench press, recording 17 repetitions. Victor, meanwhile, recorded a 35-inch vertical leap, which isn't particularly noteworthy. He did have a 10'8" broad jump, which tied for sixth-best among all wideouts.

Overall, the Buckeye contingent left a lot to be desired for scouts. It was a far cry from last year, when both Terry McLaurin and Parris Campbell opened eyes in Indianapolis.

Now, there's more to football than these physical tests, and we'd still expect the OSU guys to generate interest from teams.

They just might have to wait a while to hear their names called on draft weekend.
