When talking the Buckeyes, there’s so much talent expected to come out in the draft with eight or nine prospects projected to be picked, some guys just get lost in the shuffle.

One of those individuals is DaVon Hamilton, a tackle-for-a-loss machine. OK, he wasn’t a starter, but 31.8 percent of the defensive tackle’s takedowns went for a loss during his college career, including 37 percent in his senior season.

He’d break into the league as a rotational tackle, although, NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein wrote he possesses starter potential.

If Hamilton is to be drafted, it’d be likely he hears his name called on day three of the draft.

The Browns will start Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson in 2019, while the recent signing of Andrew Billings offers depth. Keep in mind that Richardson will carry a $15 million cap figure in 2021, so he could be next year’s Olivier Vernon, meaning, everyone will be waiting for the team to waive him in a money-saving move.
