We just witnessed another NFL draft where the Ohio State football program had a slew of players hear their name called. In fact, for the second year in a row, the Buckeyes had at least ten players go in the draft, the only program to do so. OSU has been a draft monster during the history of the draft, leading all programs with total first-round picks and third in overall picks throughout the history of the draft. Simply put, if you want to sign an NFL deal, head to the banks of the Olentangy.

And it’s on that note that we’re now onto the next phase of this draft process, getting those players that were selected officially inked with their new teams. We decided to put together a draft signing tracker for former Ohio State players and keep track of it all with a status of each.

Normally, the higher the pick the longer it takes to sign because — well, money, but we’ll see how it all plays out. We’ve already seen a handful of former Buckeye make it official and we’ll continue to update the tracker as each smiles in front of the camera with a really fancy pen, normally on social media.

So off we go, our Ohio State football NFL draft player signing tracker for 2021, with reported contract details thanks to spotrac.com when available.
