Inexperienced WRs trying to make an impact
Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:23:00 EDT
When Ohio State receivers Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall and Braxton Miller departed for the NFL, they took with them 80 percent of the team's passing-game production from last season. That's a bunch of pressure for the receivers vying for playing time this season. They are loaded with talent and potential, definitely, but have yet to make an impact in Columbus. The two likely starters at wide receiver, Noah Brown and Corey Smith, both went down with broken legs last year but are healed and running at full speed. The rest of the crop is raw. The H-backs, Curtis Samuel and Dontre Wilson, are more experienced, but Samuel may switch back and forth between receiver and tailback.

The Ohio State offensive line had one constant over the past three seasons: Taylor Decker. Decker started 42 games for the Buckeyes, 28 at left tackle, and amassed numerous postseason awards including earning consensus All-American honors and being named the Big Ten’s Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year in his senior season.

J.T. Barrett takes control at QB for Ohio State
Thu, 18 Aug 2016 10:08:00 EDT
J.T. Barrett was beaten out by Cardale Jones last year in one of the most intriguing training-camp quarterback races in the nation. Now, he is Ohio State's undisputed starter and leader of a team that's reloading after the departure of 16 starters. Barrett's value to the team can't be overstated. The Buckeyes' fortunes likely will ride on the 21-year-old Texan's ability to recapture some of the magic from the 2014 national championship season. With a freshman likely starting at tailback - no more Ezekiel Elliott to carry the offensive load - and a stable of unproven wide receivers, the Buckeyes will look to Barrett for guidance and big plays. He's a junior, but on this team he's one of the veterans. He's been chosen a captain for the second straight season.
Fall Camp Spotlight: Gareon Conley

A year ago, Ohio State brought back three of four starters to a national championship secondary. With one spot to fill, Gareon Conley was tasked with stepping in as the second corner and fourth member of the team's aerial defense.

Ohio State has been fortunate when it comes to tight ends, to say the least. Its last two starters at the position were drafted by a pair of the best franchises in the NFL: Jeff Heuerman was selected in the third round by the Denver Broncos in 2015 and Nick Vannett was also taken in the third round this past April by the Seattle Seahawks.
