Former Ohio State Cornerback Marshon Lattimore Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

The Ohio State Buckeyes earned a close win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday to the tune of 26-17. The Buckeyes were less than spectacular, but keep themselves in the thick of the College Football Playoff hunt and this is especially true considering the struggles for some programs at the top of the polls.

Enough about dwelling on Saturday. It’s time to take a look into how some of our favorite former Buckeyes are competing in the NFL for their current teams. The list of former Ohio State stars in the NFL is long and we have to split this list into two with this version focusing on the former defensive stars.
