Thomas, Lee, Bell, Apple, Elliot, Bosa...all of them leaving makes sense. You guys were great, won a national title for Ohio and are due to get big paychecks...everybody wins...thank you and best wishes.
I think Jalin Marshall, Gareon Conley and Tyvis Powell leaving would be a mistake. Marshall has a lot of room for growth and would be the key skill guy on the offense next year. Conley has a lot of potential but had some rough spots this year. Marshall and Conley look like potential 1st round guys in 17, but not 16. Powell never struck me as a big NFL prospect.
Keeping Elflein, Marshall, Conley and Powell with one of Bell or Apple would be a big plus for OSU next year. Also, Torrance Gibson said he's coming back to OSU so that'll squash the transfer rumors. He could be an impact player next year.
