Football
Projected Spring Depth Chart: Offense
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — It’s finally here; Christmas in March.

After another “ho-hum” basketball season in which the Buckeyes lost just three games all year, football once again takes center stage in Columbus.

No, spring practice isn’t on the same level as the start of fall camp, and it certainly pales in comparison to the real thing, but football is still football. With a potential NFL lockout looming, every snap is at a premium.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and his team hit the practice field for the first of 15 times today, in what will undoubtedly be one of the most interesting off-seasons in school history.

Obviously there is a lot still to be decided off the field, but on the field things should be pretty interesting as well. We take a look out our projections for Ohio State’s spring depth chart based on the official roster that was released Wednesday.

(Editor’s Note: We chose to drop all suspended players to second-string except for Pryor, who likely will not take part in much, if any, of spring practice. Also, heights, weights and numbers have been updated to reflect the latest roster.)
