Lets just put Bosa up there and be done with it. That guys a monster. He leads by his play. Give him a record 15 sacks this season. Mark it down.

Way to young IMO. He has supreme talent, no doubt, but the "C" is earned, not given. He needs to be a role model to younger guys on and off the field. You cannot gauge that with one offseason IMO.

There is nothing more remarkable as learning to think better.

Uh, why would anyone down vote here? Some people on here really make me wonder. What about his statement deserves a down vote? Good God!

D. Grant*, B. Miller, Devin Smith and M. Bennett were going to be my predictions too.  I can't see them using any more than one Junior this year.  There's too many Seniors that are more than good fits for captain.  

It is time!!!!!

D. Grant is also a senior this upcoming season.

Agreed on all these Chaz - Let's bring back Kenny G as an Honorary Captain during the Alumni Game.

Decker is a lock, amirite? Also, what about Heuerman?.

Heuerman?

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I agree with Heuerman, he is someone who can be counted on. He will also probably go to next level.

Always think it should be seniors first!!! never go lower than junior, ever!! sends wrong message to devolping your senior class as the leaders of the team. i like the picks except grant..unless he's a starter!!

Heuerman absolutely will be. 

Dark horse on offense: D. Baldwin on the o-line as a senior. Also could maybe see Evan Spencer but didn't he get his hand slapped pretty hard by Urban for the media gaffe, so probably not.

Dark horse on defense: Joel Hale, or even Curtis Grant

Rod Smith has been mentioned by Drayton and Meyer as becoming a good leader on the team. I wouldn't be surprised if he took a captain spot as well.

I don't know if Smith has what it takes to be a captain simply because people think FUMBLE when they hear his name. It is fair to a point as Smith fumbled 4 times before he got his 50th carry as a Buckeye. If he has cured his fumbling issue though, I believe we have an Eddie George type back. Don't laugh...the guy is 6'3" and is weighing in at close to 240 pounds right now. He has always been 230+ pounds so it isn't like he just added cheeseburger weight like George Foreman used to...Rod Smith is a beast and he has excellent speed as well. Like I said "don't laugh", but both Eddie George and Rod Smith are/were 6'3" and 240 pounds....the only difference might be that Smith is a bit faster than George was. If Smith gets OL play like El Guapo did, he could rush for 1500+ yards just like Eddie George and Carlos Hyde did....Sounds like a captain to me!!! If nothing else, Smith should be the #1 RB and get 20 carries a game if he holds on to the damn ball.

"I hope they're last in everything". One of Meyer's comments when speaking of TTUN after being hired at Ohio State.

We are speaking the same language CGroverL. I think Smith can be special he just has to get out of his own way like Drayton has said before.

Rod Smith definitely fumbled a bit as a freshman, but his past two years haven't been that bad. Now, he didn't have a whole lot of opportunities last year, but he has not fumbled in a while. Let's hope he continues that trend. Besides that, I completely agree with you. He has quite a bit of talent and has a chance to step into the starting role this year. I would love to see him have that breakout year this fall.

This is going to get some weird looks but for some reason I think Curtis Grant will be a captain. Also if there is going to be a Junior as a captain, I see Decker grabbing that.

I see either decker or heurman being another captain on offense beside Braxton. I also like the idea from some people above that say Curtis Grant. If he steps up in a big way this fall I could see it.

It certainly will be fun to watch this unfold.

I think it would be a great idea to give Curtis Grant that opportunity. It would motivate him even more and give him an offseason goal to work towards.

As a MLB, you kinda feel like the captain of the defense anyways, and it would be a great confidence boost to let him earn that position.
