Underclassmen have until January 15, 2014 to declare for the upcoming NFL Draft, but Ohio State Head Coach Urban Meyer didn’t hesitate to admit that cornerback Bradley Roby will be leaving for the NFL after this season. Roby, like South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, had never hidden the fact that his junior season would be his last. Unlike Clowney, Roby could have entered the draft last season but opted not to. And by summer time, if not sooner, he may have been regretting his choice. Roby began the season suspended after an off-season altercation with a Bloomington, Indiana bouncer, and has followed with a number of uneven performances. Still, Roby has tremendous athleticism and speed; and is a physical, aggressive cornerback. His natural talent and potential will keep him in the first round, or at least the top 40 picks.
