The 2018 NFL Draft wrapped up on Saturday night. This was a draft dominated by Ohio State, as far as the Big Ten is concerned.

The Buckeyes had the most players selected of any team in the conference. Urban Meyer's program watched seven of its players get picked.

Penn State and Wisconsin both had solid drafts, too. The Nittany Lions and the Badgers had 6 and 4 players taken, respectively.

It was not a great draft for Michigan. The Wolverines only had two players taken over the seven rounds.

One aspect of the NFL Draft had Big Ten fans - mostly Ohio State fans, of course - laughing. Rutgers had a player drafted before Michigan did.

Ouch.

This was more of a compliment to Rutgers than it was an insult to Michigan, though. The Scarlet Knights had a player drafted before several big-time programs.

Good for Rutgers.
