Perhaps it is because I am sports nerd of the first order, but I always get a kick out of the post-NFL Draft when undrafted prospects sign with NFL teams. This year was no different. A number of Buckeyes have gone this route as well. Here is what stood out:
Indiana DL Adam Replogle - Atlanta: Gem City in the house.
New Mexico WR Lamaar Thomas – Denver: Ol’ Flash never quite developed into the on-field speed merchant we expected upon arrival in C-bus. His detour through the Mountain West Conference apparently did little to change things.
Ohio State TE Jake Stoneburner – Green Bay: Maybe the best fit of the non-drafted Buckeyes. If Stoney thought the lack of a premier passing quarterback held him back, that rationale no longer applies.
Michigan State CB Johnny Adams and Ohio State CB Travis Howard – Houston: The Buckeyes opted to recruit Florida native Howard over Adams, who hails from Akron. Both had a stretch of their college career when they thought the first round was in their future. Now they are likely battling each other for a spot on the Texans’ roster or practice squad.
Hawaii CB Mike Edwards – New York Jets: From Glenville to Knoxville to Manoa to New York City. Edwards was the Mountain West's Special Teams Player of the Year, all-MW first-team as a return specialist and second-team defensive back. Was also one of three finalists for the Jet Award, given to the nation's top return specialist.
Rice RB Sam McGuffie – Oakland: The YouTube phenom leapt to Ann Arbor before bouncing to Rice and football obscurity. But he has speed and the Raiders love them some speed.

Out of that group, I would guess that Edwards has the best chance of sticking.

If it comes down to Howard and Adams for a spot I would give the slight nod to Howard. His coverage seemed to improve his senior year and Adams could never really cover anyone without pass interference that the poor officials in the B10 often ignored. Everyone wanted to applaud his tight coverage but ignore the fact he was doing it by grabbing and hanging on.
