Both the Buckeyes and the Wolverines could have multiple first-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Ohio State safety Malik Hooker and cornerback Marshon Lattimore are both projected to be first-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers and cornerback Jourdan Lewis are also both projected to be potential first-round picks in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Buckeyes and the Wolverines are college football’s best rivalry, so, of course, we have to compare these guys.
First, Hooker vs. Peppers.
Let's just put this to rest right now.
Malik Hooker is a better prospect than Jabrill Peppers.

Now, Lewis vs. Lattimore.
Lattimore is the best CB I've studied this year. Ohio State keeps pumping out studs every year. Pretty incredible.

Ohio State’s recent history with defensive backs is pretty incredible.
