CLEVELAND (WJW)– Two Ohio State Buckeyes were selected in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland Friday night. Three more Buckeyes went during the third round.
Pete Werner was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the 60th overall pick. This versatile, physical linebacker fills a need for the Saints.
He finished his career at OSU with 185 tackles, 13 pass breakups, four forced fumbles and a sack. He was three-year starter with the Buckeyes.
The Green Bay Packers took center Josh Myers 62nd overall. He was a team captain and first-team all-Big Ten in 2020.
The fourth Buckeyes to be selected in the draft is guard Wyatt Davis. He went to the Minnesota Vikings with the 86th overall pick.
A few picks later, running back Trey Sermon is selected by the San Francisco 49ers. This Oklahoma transfer is a powerful runner, who’s hard to tackle. Trey Sermon is versatile, picking up blocks and catching passes when his QB needs help.
Baron Browning was the final pick of the third round, going to the Denver Broncos. He checks all the boxes physically. He’s a talented player with the ability to make dynamic plays. But he’s been inconsistent and his instincts need work.
