Make that six consecutive years with a drafted Ohio State defensive back.
Former Ohio State cornerback Kendall Sheffield was selected No. 111 overall in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons Saturday. The Buckeyes have had a member of the secondary drafted each year since 2013.
Sheffield came to Ohio State as a JUCO transfer from Blinn, and was originally a five-star recruit for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
The former Buckeye finished a two-year career in Columbus with 75 total tackles, two interceptions and 15 pass deflections. Both picks occurred in 2018.
The Texas product suffered a partially torn pectoral muscle during the bench press at the 2019 NFL combine, preventing him from testing in front of scouts.
