Ohio State and Michigan is always a great rivalry game, but we look ahead to Sundays with potential 2020 NFL Draft prospects in this game.
It is a great day in college football as rivalries get renewed at the end of the college football season. One of the best ones kicks off at noon eastern when the Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Michigan Wolverines. This game has gone Ohio State’s way for most meetings since the turn of the century, but maybe Michigan can turn the tables. Either way, this game always features a ton of draft prospects, and there will be a lot to watch for the 2020 NFL Draft.
From both secondaries to wide receivers, from the trenches to the running backs, this game is littered with draftable talent. Let’s dive in and check out the players to watch.
Chase Young, EDGE, Ohio State
Chase Young is without a doubt the top prospect for the 2020 NFL Draft right now, and he continues to look elite week in and week out. Young has 16.5 sacks this season even with a two game suspension for violating NCAA rules.
He’s been a dominant pass rusher with great athleticism who can win around the edge with some bend and dip but has great hands to keep offensive linemen from landing punches. He can win with a good inside move and with power as well. Young is going to be compared as a top prospect with Nick Bosa and Joey Bosa, and it’s possible he’s better than both of them. It’s going to be tough for Michigan to keep him out of the backfield.
