Linebacker Darron Lee should be one of several Ohio State players chosen in tonight's first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. There have been several teams linked to Lee in various mock drafts, but apparently there's one in particular he wouldn't mind pulling the trigger on him.
During a red carpet interview on the NFL Network, Lee said he is hoping to be chosen by the New York Giants, who hold the No. 10 pick and were Lee's favorite team growing up.

While it's unlikely the Giants would tab Lee at No. 10, they could pick him up if they moved back towards the middle of the first round. It remains to be seen if they'd do that though, as GM Jerry Reese has never traded down in nearly a decade of making picks.
A kid like Lee can dream though.
