To start it all off in training camp, there were a whopping 75 players on NFL training camp rosters, all vying for a shot to make the active roster through impressive athletic feats through the preseason.

That time has now come and gone as of yesterday when each team had to get down to the mandated 53-man rosters to be ready to start the season. That of course means a lot of players got some bad news over the last couple of days and will have to try and continue their NFL journeys through other means.

For those that did make it though, it is either the realization or continuance of a lifelong dream. From here on out, it’s all about getting prepared to start the season and hope to have a long career at the game’s highest level.

We decided to go through all of the NFL teams and let you know which players that once wore the scarlet and gray made the cuts and are on active NFL rosters for the upcoming season.

We’ve organized it by conference and division to make it a little easier to flip through for your reading enjoyment. Suffice to say, there will be plenty of Buckeyes to root for (currently 48 in fact) in the NFL during the 2021-2022 season.
