Ohio State Football: Linebacker Raekwon McMillan Declares For 2017 NFL Draft

McMillan becomes the latest Buckeye to declare for the NFL Draft.

Less than one week after Ohio State's 31-0 loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl, Buckeye middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan has declared himself eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft. 


A signature member of Ohio State's 2014 recruiting class, McMillan helped the Buckeyes win a national championship as a freshman. During that season, he recorded 54 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception which he returned for a touchdown against Maryland. 

McMillan became a full time starter in 2015, in which he led Ohio State in tackles with 119 as the Buckeyes went 12-1 with a win over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl. In his final season as a Buckeye, McMillan finished his junior year with 102 total tackles, including a career performance in a 30-27 double overtime win over Michigan in which he recorded 16 tackles. 

McMillan becomes the latest Buckeye underclassman to declare for the 2017 draft, joining safety Malik Hooker and Gareon Conley.
