    On the flip side, you also see the biggest stagnation of an offense if the OL isn't a cohesive unit(2021 The Game). Stud's lack of recruiting prowess shows a big way right now. And many were worrying about this, and it doesn't seem like Day is looking into the Transfer Portal, so IDK if that should ease some of those worries...

    Cade Stover is the likely frontrunner to start at tight end after moving back to the position following a brief switch to linebacker. Stover played the second-most snaps among Ohio State tight ends behind only Ruckert last season, and among the Buckeyes’ four tight ends who are in at least their third year at Ohio State, he’s the only one with the measurables offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Kevin Wilson truly desires at the position at 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds.

    Just sayin': Hence Stover moves back to TE.

    Or Kyion Graves, or Kyle McCord, or Xavier Johnson…
    JK Johnson is having “teachable moments” on defense :roll2:

    Bestbuck36 Kyle Young/Cade Stover man crush. Not ashamed

    Heard great things about both McCord and Brown so far. Offense is in unbelievable shape right now

    Can Ohio State football have the nation’s best offensive line in 2022?

    Ohio State football has gotten through seven practices this spring and its starting offensive line may already have the potential to be the best in the country.

    The returning starters are Luke Wypler at center and Dawand Jones at right tackle after he flirted with going pro. Technically speaking, Paris Johnson Jr. is a returning starter, but he’s headed back to his favored position of left tackle after spending the 2021 season as a right guard.

    New to the starting five are Donovan Jackson and Matthew Jones as the guards. Jones is a former top-100 recruit who in Year 5 finally looks ready to lock down a full-time job. Jackson is a former five-star who in Year 2 might be the unit’s best athlete.

    Entire article:

    I'll say YES.

    Don Muenz Kill the blow. Let the devil sort them out.

    I just hope that we come out like the 2006 World Champion Cardinals, of whom Tony Larussa said, “We weren’t the best team, but we played the best.”

    I started this reply in the Royer thread but decided to move it over since I covered the entire TE room.

    Royer feels like he’s in a similar position to Ruckert throughout his career; where his biggest strength is as a pass catcher and he will need to continue to focus on adding strength to be an effective blocker at the point of attack.

    That’s not to say he’s bad at it, just that it’s the area that needs continuous focus for him. Hopefully he can put it together this season; it is definitely his time to shine if he can (see: the latest post on his thread which inspired this post).

    It’s an interesting dynamic in the TE room this year with guys who can contribute different things.

    Gee Scott is on one end as the most dynamic/dangerous offensive weapon but with the least experience being physical at the line of scrimmage.

    Royer is right in the middle in terms of pass catching and ability to be an impactful blocker.

    And Stover can be a force at the line but is the least dangerous down the field.

    Then you have Rossi who can do it all but not at a level that would worry a defense… at least not that we’ve seen yet.

    Throw in Sam Hart, who seems like another Royer-type who will likely need another year to continue developing physically before he can see significant playing time, and Bennett Christian, who is unlikely to get on the field much in his first year, but is one of the only guys in the room who has the ideal build, at 6’6” 245, to be effective at the line and to create mismatch problems down the field. Birm has alluded to this possibly resulting in Christian getting on the field sooner than you would expect.

    Hopefully the coaches can utilize the room in ways that highlight each player’s strengths while not completely tipping off defenses; i.e. Stover = run play, Scott = pass play.

    Moreover, past CFP champion history suggests Ohio State's defense doesn't have to be elite, provided the offense performs as expected. The defense just has to show a very realistic level of improvement and the Buckeyes should not only reclaim their spot atop the Big Ten and as a CFP qualifier, but also possess the ability to make a legit run at a national title.

    That's a lot of talent in one room! Not trying to sound like a Homer, but I really don't know many programs with a better RB room top to bottom
