Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier to enter 2014 NFL Draft

(AP) Ohio State junior linebacker Ryan Shazier has decided to give up his senior season to make himself available for the NFL draft. In a statement released by Ohio State, the first-team All-American said he just felt that this was “the perfect time” for him to move on.

A 6-foot-2, 230-pounder from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., he led the Buckeyes in tackles each of the last two seasons. His 143 tackles this season rank sixth nationally and in a tie for 13th on the Ohio State single-season charts.

His 22.5 tackles for a loss this year rank third nationally.

The Buckeyes won 24 games in a row the last two seasons before losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game and to Clemson in the Orange Bowl on Friday night.
