Ohio State's NFL Draftees Are Already Doing Some Playful Trash Talking About Their Future NFL Matchups

It hasn't taken very long for Ohio State's NFL Draftees to start anticipating their future matchups against their former Buckeye teammates. 

Two players - Eli Apple and Michael Thomas - are already doing some playful trash talking about their Week 2 matchup. 

Apple, taken No. 10 overall by the New York Giants, will face off - and potentially cover - Thomas, taken in the second round by the New Orleans Saints, during the second week of the NFL season. 

The back-and-forth jawing has begun. It started with Thomas poking fun at Apple's Madden rating.
