Re-Thinking Spring Depth Chart: Offense
By Brandon Castel

On Thursday morning we released our projections for Ohio State’s 2011 spring depth chart . A lot of them turned out to be accurate, as the Buckeyes opened camp with their first practice of the spring.

After watching the scrimmage portion of practice, both 7-on-7 and 11-on-11, we decided to re-think our spring depth chart based on what we saw Thursday.

There will certainly be a number of changes made on both sides of the ball, and probably a lot of players moving around, especially on the offensive line, but here’s how Ohio State’s depth chart would have looked on offense for the first day of spring practice.
