2020 tOSU Offense

    Is this the last season for Jeremy Ruckert with Buckeyes?
    The numbers obviously don’t leap off the page to point out Jeremy Ruckert as a no-brainer to leave early for the NFL Draft, but his athleticism and natural ball skills have put him on the radar of scouts since the moment he arrived in Columbus. With another year of physical development and another step forward as a blocker, Ruckert is likely going to be facing a tough choice when it comes to his future after this season — and it won’t be a surprise to see him move on to the next level.

    Losing Ruckert wouldn’t be ideal for the unit at this time next year since both Farrell and Hausmann will also be gone, and it’s possible that he might embrace the opportunity to be the clear-cut leader in that room for the Buckeyes as a senior. But his draft stock probably isn’t going to change all that much either way since it’s no secret what he could become at the next level, and that will make his decision a key one to follow this season.

    In 2-deep: Ohio State's projected depth chart on offense

    Starter: Justin Fields. Backup: Gunnar Hoak

    Comment: If Stroud and Miller were able to go through the full 15 practices of spring football -- instead of just three -- they would have had a shot at unseating Hoak for the backup job. However, the fifth-year senior knows the offense well and will likely fend off the two true freshmen. Fields was a Heisman finalist last season and the sky is the limit for him in his second year as a starter and the second year in head coach Ryan Day's offense. Fields could end up going down as the best quarterback in Ohio State history if he is able to top his excellent sophomore season of 2019. I give Stroud the edge over Miller just based on their high school films, and I want to be clear that I really like Miller's high school film. I just think Stroud is the future starter in the program and has stardom written all over him. But for now, Stroud will have to watch an established star in Fields lead the way for the Buckeyes, then perhaps take over as the starter in 2021.

    Starter: Trey Sermon. Backup: Master Teague

    Comment: The word out of the WHAC is Sermon looks like a beast and is ready to roll. Teague is coming off a partially-torn Achilles tendon, but looked good as the backup last year as a redshirt freshman. Crowley is coming off a torn ACL, but the staff was very impressed with how he played as a true freshman last year. Chambers is a healthy redshirt freshman and might get overlooked too much by fans. It's now or never for McCall as a fifth-year senior and he is needed more at running back than receiver (and he's naturally a RB not a WR). Williams is in fantastic shape and could have been a steal in the 2020 class. But it's difficult to see him playing a lot as a true freshman.

    WR (Z): Starter: Chris Olave. Backups: Jameson Williams OR Julian Fleming.
    WR (X): Starter: Jaylen Harris. Backups: Gee Scott Jr. OR Jaxon Smith-Njigba OR Kamryn Babb.
    WR (SLOT): Starter: Garrett Wilson. Backup: C.J. Saunders.
