Looking Ahead: Projected Offensive Spring Depth Chart
By Brandon Castel

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Urban Meyer’s offense could have a new look for the 2013 season, but the group he has coming back this spring could look awfully familiar.

The return of injured senior Jordan Hall should give the Buckeyes another weapon offensively this spring, but the rest of the group will look a lot like it did at the end of last fall.

Senior right tackle Reid Fragel is gone, as is pass-catcher Jake Stoneburner, but quarterback Braxton Miller and tailback Carlos Hyde both return behind an offensive line that will have four starters back from the 2012 season.

Guys like Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson, James Clark and Ezekiel Elliott won’t join their new teammates on the field until fall camp, which means spring ball could be huge for guys like Rod Smith and Bri’onte Dunn.

Here’s an early projection of what Ohio State’s depth chart could look like in the spring on the offensive side of the ball.
