    Three Buckeyes (and one former Buckeye) make Joel Klatt's top-10 Heisman list:

    Klatt must have missed Shea Patterson's name......

    It has turned into the award for best QB on the best team in recent years. I might put Chase Young a spot or two higher but overall, I can't argue with it too much. Lots of great seasons happening right now.....

    I really want to see Chase make it as a finalist. He's the most dominant DL since Suh

    If there’s a defensive player as of late to have a shot at the Heisman, it truly is Young, as he’s been absolutely dominant through six weeks of action for the Buckeyes. By large sum, the Buckeyes are the best team in the country, and the best player on the field resides on their defense in Young. He’s contributed 29 total pressures, including nine sacks, two QB hits and 18 QB hurries — but it’s how he’s done it that is truly remarkable. It doesn’t matter whether he’s rushing from the left of the right side of the defensive line, he’s just as dominant, gaining 17 pressures from the left and 12 from the right. Additionally, he leads the country by winning 36.9% of his pass-rushing snaps this year, beating 19 more defenders than his stat sheet says. If he keeps this up, we’ll see him win some hardware in New York.

    From last week: -1
    Fields threw his first interception of the season against Michigan State and had arguably his roughest outing from a passing standpoint against the Spartans. Good thing for the Buckeyes is that the best defenses in the Big Ten were on display, as Ohio State and Michigan State represent No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in terms of our Big Ten ELO defensive rankings — so he’ll likely not face off against a better defense all season long. He has a Friday night showdown with Northwestern looming after a bye week to showcase that he can move on from his lowest-graded outing.

    From last week: +2
    Dobbins trails only Taylor in terms of yards per attempt among running backs with at least 100 carries, averaging 7.1 yards per attempt and gaining 826 yards on 116 carries through six games. He’s rattled off just six touchdowns on the ground but has 34 additional first-down carries and is gaining 4.44 yards after contact on the ground per attempt. He’s well on his way to a career year in every major rushing category, which would be just another 1,000-plus yard season, 40-plus missed tackles forced and nearly 1,000 yards after contact. Not bad for a guy who’s the third member of the Buckeyes on this list.
