Jeff Heuerman, Nick Vannett
Big, tall receiver who can catch bad passes. Willing and effective run blocker. Athletic enough to block well on the perimeter. Moves well for size.
Absolutely could see the field in 2016. The Buckeyes need a No. 2 tight end and that could be him. There will be a lot of competition, however.
