In Thursday night's NFL Draft, Ohio State Buckeyes player Gareon Conley (left and right) was drafted for the Oakland Raiders.
He has called the allegations "completely false" and no charges have been filed as police investigate. Conley is set to meet with police Monday to provide a DNA sample.
According to a Cleveland police report, an unidentified 23-year-old woman said Conley asked her up to a suite at the Westin Hotel in Cleveland to have sex, but she said she agreed only to go to the room to watch others have sex.
Though Conley had originally been predicted to be drafted on Thursday, an allegation of rape reported on Tuesday brought into question whether or not he would be drafted at all.
"I feel like I'm best with my range", he said.

However Ms Rudd was accused of "wild complacency" over her response and many questioned why Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt had remained quiet during the crisis.
"I definitely thought it was going to play out a little differently but I am a strong believer in faith and everything happens for a reason", said Melifonwu, who was thought to have a chance to join Donald Brown and Byron Jones as the only UConn products taken in the first round of the National Football League draft. However, I have worked tirelessly to put myself in position to have the honor of being an NFL draft pick and these untrue allegations are putting a huge cloud over my name and the NFL Draft.
The first round of the NFL Draft played out ideally for the Oakland Raiders.
Brett Fischer, who runs the performance center where Conley has been working out in preparation for the draft, added that becoming a better run defender has been a focus of Conley's training. Last season, the Raiders finished 24th in pass yards allowed and had issues all season defending the pass. Conley is the type of player the Raiders can build a secondary around. The Raiders have invested heavily in veteran starters Sean Smith and David Amerson, although the guaranteed money for both players expires next off-season. "We think he's a highly skilled player and he's got the potential to be one of our better corners". "He's a football junkie". Now, Conley says it was a future-defining moment. As ABC 7 reports, the actor made comments to the effect that "you can't put them in an air-conditioned dome in the desert, make them play on artificial turf and call them the Raiders". The Oakland Raiders ended the suspense Thursday night by taking the 6-foot, 195-pound player with the 24th overall pick.
Melifonwu becomes the fifth second round pick in school history, joining Darius Butler, Will Beatty, Cody Brown, and Kendall Reyes.
Reggie McKenzie said the Raiders did "miles and miles of research" on Gareon Conley, who has been accused of rape. "It's hard to get separation from him". He's got great length, great speed, really strong workouts throughout the spring, and his tape is really good.
