For players like Dwayne Haskins, Nick Bosa and Dre’Mont Jones the NFL Combine just might be another opportunity to show off their first-round talent. As for some Buckeyes this is an opportunity to up their draft stock.
Mike Weber Jr.
Weber is a player who had a strong freshman season becoming the only freshman running back to ever rush over 1,000 yards for head coach Urban Meyer. In his sophomore and junior seasons he split time with two-time Second-team All-Big Ten running back J.K. Dobbins. In 2017 the duo terrorized opposing defenses. However, in Weber’s final season as a Buckeye he had some issues holding on to the football. For Weber to raise his draft stock he has to have a real strong performance. As of right now he is a late round draft pick.
As we know Ohio State is considered DBU. With the likes of Denzel Ward, Marshon Lattimore, Gareon Conley, Malik Hooker and Eli Apple all selected in first round in three consecutive drafts. It is highly unlikely that will happen again. However that doesn’t mean Sheffield couldn’t sneak up into the late second round. Sheffield has speed, ridiculous speed. It is believed Sheffield will clock the fastest 40-yard dash time at the combine. Sheffield has a lot of potential to have a good career in the NFL. If Sheffield can work on his ball and coverage skills he may very well in end up going to the right situation and becoming a steal. Right now Sheffield is a mid-to-late round draft pick that has the potential to move up the draft boards with a strong performance this weekend.
Parris Campbell was one of Dwayne Haskins favorite targets in 2018. In his final season as a Buckeye Campbell hauled in 90 receptions for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns. Think of Campbell being that next great slot receiver in the NFL. As we seen from the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots their offenses are built around a great slot receiver. We all know how that strategy worked for the Patriots and Chiefs. Right now Campbell is a late second round pick but if he can continue it get better and have a fantastic combine that draft stock will definitely rise into the first round.
