Ohio State linebacker Pete Werner has officially declared he will be entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Werner made the announcement Thursday.

Werner was eligible to return to the Buckeyes this fall after the NCAA granted an extra year of eligibility to student-athletes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He joins Baron Browning, Jonathon Cooper, Drue Chrisman, Wyatt Davis, Justin Fields, Blake Haubeil, Josh Myers, Trey Sermon, Tommy Togiai and Shaun Wade in declaring for the draft.
