As expected, both Sam Hubbard and Tyquan Lewis have heard their name called already, and now their defensive lineman teammate Jalyn Holmes will join them in the NFL as he was taken in the fourth round by the Minnesota Vikings.
SKOL! SKOL! SKOL! SKOL! Congratulations to DE @JayHolmes_, who was just selected with the second pick of the fourth round, No. 102 overall, by the Minnesota Vikings! Holmes is the third member of the "Rushmen" to be drafted this year. pic.twitter.com/bAkueuK18m

Holmes was part of Ohio State’s elite defensive line rotation for a couple of really solid seasons. Out of Norfolk, Virginia, Holmes racked up 3o tackles and two sacks last year. He was also a team captain. You can add another draftee for defensive line coach Larry Johnson, who doesn’t seem to be slowing down with age as the Buckeyes churn out one elite prospect after another.
