Ohio State junior cornerback Bradley Roby will declare for the 2014 NFL Draft following the end of the Buckeyes’ season. This relatively unsurprising news was declared by Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer on Wednesday.
Scout.com ranks Roby as the No. 2 cornerback eligible for the 2014 Draft, 15th overall, coming in behind only Oregon’s Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.
Roby, 5-feet-11 and 192 pounds, has eight interceptions and 32 pass breakups in his career at Ohio State. He considered entering the 2013 NFL Draft a year ago as a redshirt sophomore, but decided to return to Ohio State for “one more year.” Roby entered the season as a potential top-10 pick, but his rocky junior campaign—marred with mental mistakes, a suspension, missed tackles and an ejection due to “targeting”—has raised some red flags about his potential at the NFL level.
Meyer said Roby, who is techincally a junior, will be honored on “Senior Day” when Ohio State plays host to Indiana on Saturday.
