Ohio State Football Video: Hear From Buckeyes Kerry Coombs, Gareon Conley and Denzel Ward

Hear from Ohio State defenders Gareon Conley, Denzel Ward and coach Kerry Coombs.

In recent years Ohio State has had a nice tradition of sending cornerbacks to the NFL. 

Cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs has guided Bradley Roby, Doran Grant and most recently Eli Apple to the professional ranks and he and head coach Urban Meyer believe they have the next player in that line in Gareon Conley.

Gareon is playing, man, he's playing at a high, high level right now," Meyer said. "He's an NFL corner some day."

Coombs, too, spoke about Conley's potential as a second-year starter in 2016.

Conley said he's not worried about getting to the next level right now,  but simply on playing well for teh Buckeyes. The junior said he has taken on more of a leadership role as the only returning starter in the secondary.

Competing to start opposite Conley is Denzel Ward. The corner spoke about what is likely his biggest asset -- his speed -- and how he fits into the competition for the cornerback position.
