The Ohio State Buckeyes hold their pro day on Wednesday in Columbus ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft. Pro days offer the opportunity for a school’s NFL prospects to showcase their skills and measurements in front of NFL front office members and coaching staffs.

Ohio State has many notable prospects in the 2023 draft class, such as quarterback C.J. Stroud (the potential No. 1 overall pick), offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr., wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba, offensive tackle Dawand Jones, center Luke Wypler, and defensive end Zach Harrison.

But one prospect who isn’t even eligible for the 2023 draft could steal the show on Wednesday.

Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is expected to catch passes from Stroud at the Ohio State pro day.

Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network was the first to report the rumor on Tuesday night: “Rumor around town is Marvin Harrison Jr will be catching passes tomorrow.”

Albert Breer of MMQB is hearing the same: “Buckeye All-American WR Marvin Harrison Jr. is expected to be one of CJ Stroud’s receivers during his scripted throwing session, per sources.”

Harrison, a sophomore, isn’t draft-eligible until 2024. But the son of the Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver of the same name may be the best NFL prospect on the field at Ohio State’s pro day.

If Harrison had been eligible for the 2023 draft, he would’ve have been the draft’s top wide receiver prospect (Smith-Njigba is arguably that instead).

Heck, Harrison may have been the top player on some NFL teams’ boards (it’s very possible that would’ve been the case for the Chicago Bears before they traded the No. 1 overall pick to the Carolina Panthers).

The 6’4″, 205-pounder put together a ridiculous 2022 season at Ohio State, with 77 receptions for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns.

That came after he had three touchdown receptions in the Rose Bowl as a freshman.

NFL organizations will get an up-close look at Harrison on Wednesday. And then they’ll spend the next 13 months dreaming of selecting him in the 2024 NFL Draft.
