Ohio State Rookies Dominated Their First Preseason Games Last Night

Ohio State's rookie class is one of the biggest in NFL history, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the Buckeyes made a ton of headlines as the preseason opened up on Thursday night.

A couple of Ohio State's first-year NFL players had very nice debuts.

Former Buckeyes' wide receiver Michael Thomas, now on the New Orleans Saints, had four catches for 67 yards.

Another former Buckeyes' wide receiver, Jalin Marshall, shined in his debut for the New York Jets. Marshall, who went undrafted, played with the Jets' first-team offense and had this 84-yard kickoff return.

Jeff Heuerman, who missed his rookie season with the Denver Broncos last year with a leg injury, was back on the field last night, too. He had one catch for six yards in his NFL debut.

NFL preseason games continue tonight.
