ESPN’s top NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay called out Ohio State’s star wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba because he is not going to play in the semifinal game against Georgia due to an injured hamstring.

Smith-Njigba suffered a hamstring injury in week 1 against Notre Dame and has been battling the injury. McShay did not hold back though.

“(I’d) love to see him play and obviously there are a lot of NFL scouts who would love to see him play,” McShay said. “There are a lot of reports from NFL scouts I’ve talked to who have said he’s healthy enough to play, he’s protecting himself for the draft. I’ve got news for every prospect out there. NFL teams know. 

“They know what you’ve had for lunch last Thursday. They’re going to know whether you’re healthy or not. And if you’re healthy enough to play, you need to be out there with your teammates and play.”

Smith-Njigba tweeted Monday that he would miss Ohio State’s playoff game after consulting with doctors and will instead turn his focus to the NFL Draft.

I guess doctors are wrong…..
