Tyreke Smith selected in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL draft

·1 min read

We’ve moved further into the 2022 NFL draft and we have another Ohio State player that has gone off the board with the selection of defensive end Tyreke Smith.

The Seattle Seahawks decided to pull the trigger on the 6-foot, 3-inch, 265-pound defensive end out of Cleveland in the fifth round as the No. 158 overall pick.

Smith came to Ohio State in the class of 2018 four-star prospect out of Cleveland Heights. He had a bit of an up and down career, but when he was healthy and in the lineup, he was a difficult matchup off the edge. He is strong, has a high motor, and could develop into a solid option off the edge if given the chance.

Smith has all of the measurables to be a productive player in the NFL and we can’t wait to see what the future holds at the next level.
