Chekwa said Tuesday that he's hoping to sneak into the second round. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper has Chekwa as the No. 81 overall pick, to Oakland in third round, with linebacker Ross Homan projected as the 85th pick to Philadelphia.
But there's also the possibility that none of the Buckeyes after Heyward will go until the fourth round. That's how ESPN's Todd McShay sees it. That means on the last day of the draft, in the final 157 picks, as many as 10 -- or 6.4 percent of Saturday's choices -- could be Buckeyes.
"There's a possibility about 10 of us going, and a very strong possibility of eight of us," Chekwa said Tuesday.
