While this is likely as technically adept, given the time with Hartline, and athletically talented group as we've had, who's the top-end deep threat?

I would say Egbuka, though JSN is of course a threat anywhere. But in terms of a pure burner, seems like Egbuka can flat out fly.

    J Ballard according to his team mates. Just has to get himself in the rotation. Another Jameson Williams type guy who's working his route running into his speed

    Kind of figured this, but exciting in many ways. Paris moves to his natural position at LT, Jackson has rave reviews and hopefully hits his potential at LG, Wypler hopefully added some pounds and strength because the skill and technique is there, M Jones is grossly underrated and imo might have been one of the better OL on the team last year, and Dawand we all know is a wall of a RT with room to improve. Should be a great OL from left to right.

    But we better stay healthy, outside of Vimahi and Christman to some extent there isn't a guy I have heard a peep from...obviously I hope they take a step forward, but other options are Leroux, Jacob James, Michalski, Fryar and Toutant are not any names that inspire confidence. Rest are true frosh, none of which is likely ready to play (maybbbeee Tegra).

    I heard on one of the Buckeye podcasts positive reviews about Fryar and Michalski to go with Vimahi and Christman, so TFWIW. But depending on injury, I see players moving around(i.e. a Wylper injury would bring M Jones inside and bring Christman or Vimahi off the bench).

    I’ve also read that Jakob James is doing well at center, and he’s #2 on the depth chart right now. He just needs to get stronger, so he’s not quite ready yet. And then the article went on to state what you said about Jones moving if there was an injury to Wypler.

    Anyone have a clue as to why Zach Smith and Kirk Barton are expressing heartbroken reactions on Twitter? Speculation seems to be related to an injury, specifically Kam Babb considering his previous relationship to Smith

    Jim Davidson’s passing, maybe? I’m no longer on the twitters… so just guessing.

    Sure hope so, we need at least two more other than Vimahi and Christman to have real depth. But there's hardly any position in football where you see bigger strides made than OL with another year of development.
