Football
Projected Fall Depth Chart: Offense
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Buckeyes have plenty of holes to fill on both sides of the ball this fall, but things could get really interesting on offense.

Not only did Ohio State lose plenty of talent in the senior class, including team MVP Dane Sanzenbacher, but they will have to replace three-year starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

They also have to find a way to move the ball in the early season without tailback Boom Herron, wideout DeVier Posey and left tackle Mike Adams. The Buckeyes should have plenty of talent on the roster, but there’s no telling how it will all come together.

We take a look at the projected depth chart on offense heading into Luke Fickell’s first fall camp as the head football coach in Columbus.

Players lost since spring: QB Terrelle Pryor (NFL Supplemental Draft), WR James Jackson (Wayne State)

(Editor’s Note: We chose to drop all suspended players to second-string, as they will not be on the field until game six of the season. Also, heights, weights and numbers have been updated to reflect the latest fall roster.)
