12/01/13 - 2014 NFL Draft: DT Michael Bennett plays key role in Buckeyes' big win...The 109th edition of "The Game," pitting rivals Ohio State and Michigan, featured every bit of the passion, pageantry and creative play-calling you might expect. It also featured some punches, as an ugly brawl interrupted the action in the second quarter and resulted in three players (Ohio State's Marcus Hall and Dontre Wilson and Michigan's Royce Jenkins-Stone) being thrown out. Despite the loss of personnel, the undefeated Buckeyes proved they had the chin of a title contender, withstanding a gritty effort from the Wolverines to win 42-41.
As they have all year long, the Buckeyes were led by Heisman contending quarterback Braxton Miller and senior runner Carlos Hyde, who each showed off the traits to earn positive marks from NFL scouts. A higher grade could be reserved, however, for Ohio State's junior Michael Bennett, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound penetrator who has steadily developed into one of college football's best young defensive linemen. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
