COLUMBUS, Ohio – Thursday's Ohio State Pro Day was a success for the 13 Buckeye players who took part with the NFL well represented as players made their case to be drafted high and in some instances, why they should be drafted at all.
One player that won't have to worry about if he will hear his name, just when is linebacker Raekwon McMillan. The former five-star recruit put together a successful career with the Buckeyes and now is hoping to parlay that into a successful NFL career. The next step will be hearing his name called on draft day.
"(I would like to be called) as high as possible and as soon as possible," McMillan joked after Pro Day concluded.
McMillan has been dealing with this belief by some that he may not be athletic enough to thrive at the next level. It is something that McMillan has heard in this draft process. He felt that he did enough at the NFL Scouting Combine with his testing to prove that those statements are inaccurate.
"Everybody is saying that I can't move. Saying that I am not an athlete," McMillan said. "I went out to the combine and ran a 4.61, I was trying to crack 4.5 but did not do it. I came out here and moved, vertical jump of 33 (inches) and a 10 (foot) one (inches) broad jump, what else you want from me? Not much else that I can do."
