Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby will play his final game in the Horseshoe this weekend when the Buckeyes host Indiana. Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer confirmed Wednesday night Roby will be jumping to the NFL next year.

The Georgia native has 155 tackles in 33 games for Ohio State. In his career Roby has eight interceptions, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.

As a redshirt junior, Roby has been a part of the Ohio State program for four years. Meyer acknowledged it is difficult to expect players to stick around for five years, especially if the opportunity to be drafted in a good spot comes along. Roby could go as early as the first round according to Optimum Scouting despite having a bit of a down year.

    He won’t last in the NFL because he’s not used to playing real competition.

    Roby is way overrated, no way he goes anything before 3rd round.

    Wow – all of the professional football scouts don’t seem to have much to do given they’re all posting on CFT!

    Bradley – you’ve been a great Buckeye and I thank you for your awesome effort on the field wearing Scarlet and Gray!!!
