Every former Ohio State football player on NFL rosters for 2021 training camp

·10 min read

Rejoice football fans. College football is about a month away with NFL training camps getting into full swing as well. That means we’ll be watching Ohio State dominate the Big Ten most likely again, but it also means that we’ll get a shot to root on former Buckeyes in the NFL.

As always, there are a ton of OSU players littered across active NFL rosters for training camp as things get crackin’. And while not all of them will remain there, we thought it’d be a fun exercise to go through all of those that have scarlet and gray in their football DNA as the calendar nears fall.

We’re organizing it by conference and division, so you can scroll through where you want. Or, if you’d rather just go through the entire list as well, that’s OK too, but we’ll warn you — it’ll take a while. We go through this exercise yearly, and we’ll pair it all down once 53-man rosters are announced after cuts as well.

For now though, here’s a list of all the former Ohio State players participating in NFL training camps across this great nation of ours.
