Urban Meyer On If Ohio State Will Have A Lot Of Early Entrants Into NFL Draft

Ohio State is the most talented college football team in the country. That's what NFL scouts think, anyway. 

In SI.com's latest NFL mock draft, the Buckeyes have seven players getting selected in the first round. That would be a record. Miami currently holds the top mark with six selections in the 2004 draft. 

Of those seven players projected to go in the first round, five are underclassmen with at least one more season of eligibility remaining. 

This afternoon, Urban Meyer commented on the possibility of his program losing a lot of underclassmen to the NFL.

Joey Bosa, a projected top-three pick, basically admitted yesterday that he'll be declaring for the NFL Draft. Fellow juniors Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Thomas are also probably going to declare. It's tough to imagine Cardale Jones returning for another season to be a backup, too. Darron Lee is probably the biggest question mark. 

It'll be tough to replace those players, but no one is stocked with more young talent than Ohio State, which has consistently brought top-five classes to Columbus since Meyer arrived.
