Football
Post-Spring Depth Chart: Offense
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The spring practice season has come and gone in Columbus. It was one of the most intriguing of the Jim Tressel era, and not just because of the scandal hovering over the Ohio State football program.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor will miss the first five games of his senior season because of suspension, but it was off-season foot surgery that kept him from taking snaps in the spring.
His absence opened the door for Ohio State’s four other quarterbacks to jump in and show what they could do this spring. It wasn’t exactly a quarterback clinic but all four did enough to at least remain in contention throughout the spring.

Redshirt freshman Taylor Graham might have made the biggest push at the quarterback spot, but he wasn’t the only change in the spring depth chart.

We take our first shot at projecting the post-spring depth chart, which will most certainly look much different in the fall with the arrival of the remaining members of the 2011 recruiting class. It will also be missing four key seniors for the first five games of the season.

(Editor’s Note: Changes from our previous projected depth chart are represented in bold.)
