    Today was a big day in Columbus as 22 former Buckeyes where on stage to perform in front of an estimated 133 NFL representatives. Many of those players were looking to improve on their NFL combine numbers. Let’s take a look around the Twitterverse and see how things went:

    The Minister of Buckeye News, Jerry Emig, was up and at it early promoting the massive event which involved coverage by ESPN, NFL Network, and the BTN.

    Ohio State's pro day is today & it's going to be huge: 133 representatives from all 32 NFL teams have RSVP'd. #OhioStateProDay

    It was a huge day for Joey Bosa as he looked to improve on his combine numbers where he was admittedly disappointed in those numbers. Let’s see how he did.

    His brother, future Buckeye starting defensive linemen Nick Bosa, showed up sporting Tennessee Titans gear. The Titans have the #1 pick in the draft.

    As far as workout numbers, Bosa impressed.

    The 28 reps were four more than he did at the combine.

    .@nflnetwork says Joey Bosa improved 40 time from 4.86 at Combine to 4.78 today at OSU.

    This improved 40 time should definitely solidify Bosa into the Top-5.

    Braxton Miller and Mike Thomas had a great all-around day and made some money.

    Got word from the Ohio State pro day. @BraxtonMiller5 timed at 4.33 and 4.36

    One scout text me he had @Cantguardmike at 4.45 in the 40

    After you run 4.4 and kill the position drills? You #DabOnEm with my son Cameron [​IMG] @Cantguardmike

    A few personal observations:

    • Bosa participated in LB drills and looked pretty good. He definitely won’t be confused with Darron Lee but he moved well and caught every ball thrown his way.
    • It was unfortunate to hear about Adolphus Washington hurting his hamstring during the 40. He really needed to boost his stock today.
    • DT Joel Hale worked out with the offensive linemen and was the center for Cardale Jones.
    • Vonn Bell, who didn’t run at the Combine, ran a very solid unofficial 4.50.
    • The NFL Network had a lot of trouble with player’s names. I guess having them on the back of the jersey was not enough.
    • Vannett continues to impress me. He looks so smooth and catches everything. Some team is going to get a steal with him.
    • I’d be curious to see what Lee weighed in today at. It is remarkable how much muscle he has put on.
    • Cardale looked solid throwing the ball. He was off a few times but most of the time he had great zip and accuracy.
    • Ezekiel Elliott looked very good catching the ball. I think a team is going to take him very early in the draft and be very happy. There is nothing he can’t do.
