S Ronnie Hickman

As always, the Buckeyes aren’t hurting for talent entering the NFL. While Stroud will be the main attraction for a few teams at the top of the draft, Gutekunst will be there for other reasons.

The highlight event for the Packers? It could be Smith-Njigba’s 40-yard dash. He looks like a prime target for Gutekunst and the Packers based on his production at Ohio State and previous work at the combine, but the 40-yard dash is the final piece of the puzzle on his otherwise impressive draft profile.

Gutekunst will also get an up-close look at Johnson Jr. and Jones, two potential first-round picks at offensive tackle. Hickman and Harrison are legitimate options at safety and edge rusher, respectively.
