Breaking down the Big Ten's NFL Draft results

After the three-day festivities of the NFL Draft and the ensuing flurry of free-agent activity, the Big Ten has landed 60 new players on professional rosters.

Ohio State had nine players get drafted or sign on as free agents, the most of any school in the conference.
