The latest emerged on Tuesday 鈥?two days before the first round of the draft 鈥?when TMZ reported Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley has been named in a police report by a woman who claims he raped her in a Cleveland hotel.

A police report filed in Cleveland that was obtained by TMZ Sports states a 23-year-old white female told police Conley sexually assaulted her in a hotel suite bathroom on April 9.

Conley 鈥?whom the Jets, who have the sixth pick, had in for a visit 鈥?had not been charged with a crime as of Tuesday afternoon, and vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney. Kevin Spellacy called the allegations ludicrous and ridiculous and the attorney added, In my opinion, this young lady is an opportunist and it’s actually Buddy Hield Youth jersey despicable.

Conley, according to multiple reports, has decided not to attend the three-day draft in Philadelphia. He was one of the top-rated players the NFL invited to attend and was scheduled to be in Philadelphia.
