Gators Beat Buckeyes Again


Florida beat Ohio State again. Six Gators were taken on the second day of the NFL draft, giving the national champions nine players selected in the seven rounds, the most of any school. The runner up with eight picks was Ohio State, which lost to the Gators in the BCS title game in January.

Five players each from Florida State and Miami were selected.

Gators taken today were defensive tackles Marcus Thomas by Denver and Joe Cohen by San Francisco, both in the fourth round; cornerback Ryan Smith by Tennessee, also in the fourth round. Also taken were receiver Dallas Baker by Pittsburgh, running back DeShawn Wynn by Green Bay and linebacker Brandon Siler by San Diego, all in the seventh round.
