One Ohio State soccer participant climbing up draft boards


Ohio State’s football program has a strong track record of bringing players into the NFL. Most of these players also end up having fairly successful careers. They’re going to pick some pretty good players in the NFL draft again this year, including one who climbs draft boards.

Garrett Wilson will be a guaranteed first round pick. He will most likely be a top ten pick as well. In fact, there are some predictions I’ve seen that put him in the top five. However, he’s not the one to skyrocket draft boards. That would be his criminal counterpart, Chris Olave.

Olave has skyrocketed at the NFL Combine Draft Boards since his lightning-fast 40-yard dash. He ran an unofficial 4.26 that was later changed to a 4.39. This was followed by outstanding practice at the Ohio State Football Program’s Pro Day.

Since then, he’s been meeting with teams and showing teams why he deserves to be in the top ten. He can run the entire gambit of routes and isn’t just a deep ball guy. He can do so much more and has shown it on tape playing for the Buckeyes during his four years.

Olave goes to the Falcons for 8th place. There are many teams that need a stud wide receiver, and Olave is just that. He’s not as good as Wilson, but he’s not that far behind. It’s pretty incredible to have two receivers in the top ten talents in this draft from the same school.

We won’t know where either of the receivers will start their NFL careers for a few weeks. Whoever designs Olave gets a ridiculously good all-around receiver that’s a winner. At this point I would be shocked if he didn’t make the top ten.
