This goes back to Philly Brown and his disasterous fielding of punts late in the 2013 season.  It was so bad they even had Elliott back there to fair catch and even HE muffed it.

The only "young receiver" in the rotation is KJ Hill. I don't consider Mack in the regular rotation. 

Clark and Wilson are in their 4th year in the program. 

Dixon, McLaurin, Campbell and Brown are all in their 3rd years.  Not sure to consider them young anymore. Meyer essentially said the same thing after the OK game in describing how the team isn't young anymore

They're role guys, like Evan Spencer or secondary options like Jalin.  Campbell, McLaurin, Dixon and Clark. Nice players and good blockers but not the playmakers or downfield threats that are needed.

Noah is big and strong but not particularly fast which makes it harder to get open downfield. Even his long TD catches vs OK he was well covered and wasn't really open. He had great hands though. He is more of a big threat once OSU reaches the red zone.  

This is why the coaches decided to burn Vic's RS.

I'll add to that, I think the biggest play of the game and what really saved the Buckeyes was the holding call on Wisconsins last drive of the 4th.  They were gashing our D on 1st and 2nd down and driving across midfield for a winning FG.  Very reminiscent of last years MSU drive where we couldn't stop LJ Scott on the final drive.  The holding call I believe saved the game

I think the WR's are who they at this point.  I highly doubt that McLaurin, Campbell, Dixon or Clark will turn into big time playmakers.  Good players for sure who are good for a couple catches per game.  But not real consistent downfield, playmaking threats.  Noah Brown, yes but he still needs to get better.  His biggest asset is his size and hands.  This is why you've seen the coaches burn Victors redshirt. Need a consistent downfield WR with good hands that can create separation.
