The NFL will soon have its own Michael Jordan. On Friday, Ohio State Buckeyes interior lineman Michael Jordan announced he is declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft.

The All-American lineman heads to the NFL after a junior season that saw him play a pivotal role in protecting quarterback Dwayne Haskins. He displayed versatility in his collegiate career with experience at both guard and center, which should further help his NFL stock.



Listed at 6-foot-7, Jordan could be shifted back to guard where he found a little bit more success in previous seasons. According to Dan Hope, Jordan became the first offensive lineman since Orlando Pace to leave Ohio State for the NFL after three seasons.
