QB Braxton Miller
Quarterback / Defensive Front Seven

Quarterback Braxton Miller will continue pushing the Ohio State offense with his dazzling footwork and rushing totals. He alone is good enough to give any team a Top 10 ranking. Despite never being able to prove himself as a passer yet, Miller will be a legit Heisman candidate. The Buckeyes have a great formula in place for winning Big Ten games, the defensive line and the linebackers heading into next season will be full of experience and talent, which is a far cry from where this team was a year ago when having to replace so many starters here.

Offensive Line / Secondary

Every year it seems this team has a huge hole at one unit where turnover is massive. The offensive line will carry that torch this off-season. The entire unit was full of All-Conference players that are no longer a part of the team. Just like the defense was a year ago, this front line will go through a complete rebuilding phase with little to no experience available. The secondary isn't short on talent, but for some reason they just have not been able to put things together. With cornerback Bradley Roby skipping out early to the NFL much work will need to be done with this group.

* DEPTH CHARTS were only designed as a simplistic gauge for listing players that departed and players that received the most playing experience (consistent starters). NationalChamps.net recognizes the importance of missing personnel data not listed such as redshirts, transfers, injuries, incoming recruits, back ups and alternates. Their coverage will begin with our full 2014 Preseason Preview due out this coming spring.
