    One of the biggest surprises this year is his lack of progression. He flashed so much ability last year...thought he'd be an impact player.

    Larry Johnson Sees Something Special in Robert Landers


    Robert Landers has been a key piece of Ohio State’s defensive line puzzle the last two years. He has played in 26 games over that time, displaying quickness and burst that is rare for a nose tackle.

    As a redshirt freshman in 2016, Landers tallied 7.5 tackles for loss. Last year, he added five more tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

    He is not the biggest guy, checking in at 6-foot-1 and 283 pounds, but he uses it to his advantage in terms of leverage and explosion. Landers has yet to start a game for the Buckeyes, but that will change this season. He will need to show that he won’t wear down over the course of a game or the course of a season due to his size, however.

    Defensive line coach Larry Johnson doesn’t share those concerns. And based on what he saw from Landers off the field this spring, he can’t wait to see what he does on the field.

    “His leadership skills are going off the roof,” Johnson said. “I think that is the biggest area I want him to grow, is as a leader. He has done that. He is leading by example too, which is really cool for the young players to watch a guy with a challenging skill set go as hard as he can. I think that is really special.”

    Depth at this position is downright stupid.

    Like Cooper, Robert Landers is another Ohio State defensive lineman who tends to be overshadowed by his talented teammates along the line, but deserves his own attention as a potential impact player for the Buckeyes up front.

    While Dre’Mont Jones is another star for the Buckeyes at the 3-technique defensive tackle position, Landers is in line to be the Buckeyes’ starting nose tackle this season after rotating in at the position for the past two seasons.

    Some have expressed reservations about Landers being more than just a rotational player, but he played only 49 less snaps than starting nose tackle Tracy Sprinkle last season, and was often on the field for entire series at a time. He’s shown the ability to be a disruptive interior penetrator – recording 12.5 tackles for loss over the past two seasons – and with the likes of Bosa, Young, Jones, Cooper and others playing around him, he should help the Buckeyes continue to wreak havoc up front in 2018.

    Explosive player. He and Dre'mont are going to see mostly one on one this year and have potential to have great years.
