Flexing for the NFL
Will not tucking in one’s shirt become the style trend of 2016 in the business world?
Maybe in Dallas.
With the fourth pick in the NFL Draft in Chicago, Illinois, the Dallas Cowboys selected Ezekiel Elliott of The Ohio State University. Widely considered as the best running back in this year’s draft class (and one of the best overall athletes), Zeke not only showed flashes of his potential to succeed at the highest level, but he excelled in highlight reel after highlight reel for the Scarlet & Grey.
He’s a baller who will be a welcome addition by teammates, fans and Jerry Jones alike down in Dallas, Texas.
Mr. Elliott’s Buckeye pal Joey Bosa was drafted at No. 3 by the San Diego Chargers and Eli Apple was drafted at No. 10 by the New York Giants. Even as the First Round continues late into the night, the aforementioned picks collectively made for a special moment in the NFL Draft.
“…and it’s never happened before: Three players from the same school in the top ten picks of the draft. Ohio State has three of them now…”
–Chris Berman, ESPN
In the coming days, more history could be made by The Ohio State University. If “The Buckeye 14” becomes reality (14 players selected from one school), then, most importantly, smug Ohio State-hater Mark May will be receiving all kinds of fun, customized merchandise from Buckeye Nation.
Perhaps Mark May will receive another shout-out from Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer as he’s on the phone signing the future “Buckeye 15.”
Jimmy’s Daily Planet will stay tuned on the potential history for the Buckeyes in the 2016 NFL Draft.
