Which unit will benefit the most from incoming freshmen?

I voted for O Line simply because of the depth issues, and I expect Taylor Decker to get some PT this season.  I also wouldn't be suprised for more incoming frosh to make their way onto the 2-deep.  I think the O Line really needed these new players.
I think it's clear some of the frosh on the D Line will also get some PT.  We know they're going to rotate a bit to stay fresh.

I'm with you BP, OL needs help & Secondary's not too shabby.    I did ponder RB's as well,  since Jordan injured his foot,  & Brionte looks good, too...  but that really falls on Carlos.

O Line for sure.  D Line is already stacked without any freshman.  O Line not so much.
BassPlayer is wise.

I read it a different way.
I looked at the question as benefitting the most, not necessarily who needs the most help because that particular starting unit is thin.  Even though we have great players on the D-Line, I think they will benefit the most with the new talent coming in, possibly to rotate fresh players all the time in a seamless transition in terms of talent.  It's good to have fresh players on the D-Line.

Decker, O'Connor, Dodson, Boren will all greatly benefit the OLine IMHO.  2 of them might start for pete's sake.  Don't think we will see any freshman starting on the DLine.

Plus, as soon as any O Lineman gets injured, we'll be happy to have quality depth at this position.

Starting?  No.  Significant playing time?  Possibly.  But I will concede to your point if 2 freshmen start on the O-Line.

Glad you are willing to see things my way Baro.  You are a scholar and a gentleman.

At the same time? Or seperately? I think Boren and Decker could both start if there's injury or lack of consistency.

O-line for depth. D-line for depth as well, too a less needed extent. 

BUCKEYES BABY!

Alot of people would say the d-line but don't sleep on the linebckers...Perkins, Marcus, Williams and Perry...Oh and a possible diamond in the rough in Roberts added to a unit in desperate need of depth.
