JT is listed first, he is the starter

Let Urban Go For 3's picture

If you open the PDF Cardale is actually listed first. For this reason I think we can officially say Collier gets the first snap.

HS
ZMBucks's picture

When I first typed that post, I put Cardale instead of JT because when I downloaded the OSU depth chart it had Cardale first, but then I reread 11W's post and they were swapped from the OSU version. So I believe you are correct that it all points towards Collier.

I wouldn't be surprised if they put Braxton in just for the first play with a read option or a designed QB run.  It would mess with everyone and honor Braxton at the same time.

JarheadBuck's picture

Clearly we line up in a Wing T with Brax, JT, Cardale and Collier all in a row and spreading at the snap.  Then Boren pulls a fumbleruski, runs for a TD and forever becomes the unlikely answer to the 2015 QBmageddon 1st snap trivia question.

HS

when I saw Brax listed at PR I had visions of him cutting and sprinting his way to a TD in Lane Stadium on his first touch after the D gets a stop. 

man, I've missed Braxton.

Yes, I see only 12 seniors on the entire depth chart plus none of the four suspended players are seniors.  That means a significant percentage of the depth chart CAN return although not all will.

i surmise we'll see a ton of sets where braxton, samuel, and thomas are the receivers, especially if quick patterns are the recipe of the day, which with an aggressive front will most likely be the case.

Question is, is your sarcasm disclaimer also sarcastic?  Cuz if so by the double-negative sarcasm property it would mean your 1st sentence was your truthful opinion.  That would put you at a meta-level of sarcasm mastery beyond any 11W or 12W member here.

Triv's picture

No "OR" listed for PR yet both in bold, could we possibly see them send both Braxton and Samuel back a la Ginn/Gonzo? I sure hope so, that second guy (whoever doesn't catch the punt) often makes the key block that can lead to a big return 

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

I like it when we set up for a return, rather than try to block it with eager freshmen and sophomores who end up running into the punter and giving the other team a first down!

Warren Ball at kickoff return is a surprise to me. 

HS
BigTom's picture

Because you can't have smallish players running back kicks with guys like Dante Booker, Mike D'Andrea, Curtis Grant running down there full speed for a head on collision.   It's not like punt returns... the collisions and rate of impact is much more severe.   You almost never see WRs returning kicks.   I say... almost.    Of course you have exceptions but most of the time you try to have a level of physicality to the player or someone is going to end up hurt.

HS
BGSUBucksFan's picture

Good point.  As others have said, it would make sense that Ball is there to block for Samuel.

HS
BuckminsterFullback's picture

you try to have a level of physicality to the player

Old-timers will recall that Keith Byars returned kickoffs, before he locked down a job as a starting RB.

HS
Youngbuck85's picture

I've not really studied a lot of our kick return formations but it seems that we usually have a big running back on KR. Rod smith and Dunn have been on the unit the last few years, and I would assume it's because they're good blockers. We probably will plan on Samuel being the ball carrier and Ball blocking, but that's just my guess

MD

HS
bucknut1994's picture

I agree with this.  Set up Samuel as the deep man and have Warren Ball come and be his lead blocker

#94Ways

HS

That's a good guess. Spencer seemed to have that role last year, at least after R Smith was tossed, I'm not sure about before.

Interesting to see that Torrance Gibson didn't make the cut on the WR depth chart, especially with all the glowing comments that have been made about him during camp.

HS
steve-OH's picture

I could see him being just a special package guy, due to not having a lot of experience at the position or at this level. Maybe somebody they bring in for red zone plays due to his height and leaping ability.

HS
BigTom's picture

The comments have been about how much potential he has.   Never a mention of does he even know what he is doing.   As Urban said... it takes years to learn a position.

HS
HotSauceCommittee's picture

I agree. A few practice highlights and loads of potential don't exactly get you on the field week 1, in a big game, especially as a freshman, at OSU.

HS
Youngbuck85's picture

A few questions for staff / anyone who might know about the receivers.... One is are Dixon and Clark actually healthy , and specifically do you see Clark getting time this year? And 2 is pretty much the same question about Jeff Greene... I know we've all been dying to see him step up. Will he ever catch another ball at OSU or is his window closed?

HS
Squirrel Master's picture

that really doesn't mean anything though. I saw some of AJ Alexander in the videos and he isn't in the 2 deep either.

I think Greene will see the field, I just don't think he will be in the 2 deep. Above still doesn't include 3 other guys who would be above Greene.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

HS
MITCH-A-PALOOZA's picture

I was wondering the same thing about Greene.... with his body, seems like a natural replacement for NB opposite Mike. Was hoping he could (finally) be a breakout guy this year, but haven't read much about him/his progression this offseason

HS
BuckminsterFullback's picture

do you see Clark getting time this year

A day or two before Noah Brown broke his leg, the Columbus Dispatch asked Eli Apple which of the young receivers, besides Brown, had impressed in camp; Clark was his first mention.

HS

Really concerned about the center position. If Boren goes down we are looking at Brady Taylor. Taylor spent a lot of time recovering last year.and I have not heard much new about him. . . Perhaps no news is good news.

Youngbuck85's picture

The depth charts are pretty fluid and id say a decent amount is to reward players. Spencer and Thomas were listed as starters last year after Meyer said they "earned it" in a press conference, and id say it would be hard to say devin smith wasn't the starter 

MD

HS
toad1204's picture

Hopefully early enrolling helps.

The offseason is the longest season.

HS
BGSUBucksFan's picture

Depth charts are often deceiving.  If Boren were to actually go down, they may slide Price/Elflein over as they did against Bama when he went out for one play (TD run by EZE, for what it's worth).  That would likely put Knox at guard.

HS
iamcbs's picture

They moved Elflein to Center on that play, not Price...

HS

I stand corrected.  Thanks.

HS
ScarletAndGrayMatter's picture

I think it's more likely that Pat Elfein would move over to center and you would see Evan Lisle in at left guard. I would be much more concerned about Decker going down. I think that is where the biggest drop off is between the 1's and 2's as far as o-line goes.

Now if you will excuse me I am going to go pray for an hour asking God to please not let that happen.

injury to Boren: Elf to C, Farris to G, Jamarco to RT

injury to G: Farris to G, Jamarco to RT

Taylor will rep at center in blowouts with the second unit, but in reality he's probably the 4th option.

Knock on wood but we've seen three years of no OL starts missed due to injury. Let's hope for number 4.

HS
jonping67's picture

You would have to rip off Boren's leg to get him out of the game. And he would still be hopping on one leg asking the coaches to go back in.

HS
BuckminsterFullback's picture

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

HS
bakerjon's picture

My understanding has been that Jamarco Jones is the 6th man in, regardless of position. There would be a  shuffle of the other 4 to fit him into the line (e.g. Farris to Guard, Elflein to Center) much like we did with Farris last year.

Pretty anticlimactic...Prince the only true frosh on the two deep completely on merit as Ward is the possible 4th CB in part because of Lattimore's injury. Farris, Conley, McMillian and Hubbard/Slade were pencilled in back in the spring and nothing changed. Call that one of those good problems.

Ball is a natural choice to assist the KR as that role was filled by Rod Smith and Evan Spencer past year. I expect Marshall to resume PR duties once he returns and maybe push Samuel back to RB. 

I'd put more money on one of Hill/Gibson red shirting than the duo having 10+ catches between them in '15.

Some thoughts:

- Glad to see James Clark re-emerge on a depth chart. Every time his name has been mentioned the past 2 years it's always been a "he's got a LONG ways to go before he contributes here" kind of thing, and I loved his HS film.

- K.J. Hill at H-back is interesting as previously mentioned, but I was also surprised to see Parris Campbell at WR, as I was always under the impression he's been at H-back the past 2 seasons. Excited to see him play. 

- Glad to see Warren Ball with some kind of role on this team, even though it appears to just be the blocking back on KR. 

- Really looking forward to seeing what Braxton and Samuel do at H and PR.

It's funny people worried about Some of the true freshman not being listed in the two deep, we have 3-6 games this year that all our back-ups will be having plenty of playing time in blowouts. We have Hawaii, Northern Illinois & Western Michigan after this "Serious" V-tech game, Which i'm sure we'll open it up plenty on Offense and get lots of reps on Defense to get ready for big ten. Yeah Indiana maybe undefeated due to lack of schedule but them and Maryland aren't special so could be 5 in a row with special teams they get plenty of looks.

Surprised Cam Williams is the #2 MLB. He has shown in the past that he struggles. Thought Conner might get that spot

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

I wasn't sure if they'd put Braxton at kick return. That's awesome. He must have shown some amazing skills there.

Would be more awesome if you'd point me to the Depth Chart that shows he's at KICK return..Or did you mean, Punt?

Going through the depth chart I was just wishing that someone would play WLB. It's all good. No jne is worried with our crew of LBs.

This depth chart is like an episode of Maury. Dont worry about the dna test with all these "or"s Hokies. Just assume they are all your co-daddies.

I live by the golden rule. You don't cross my Shit-line, I don't cross yours.

Can't explain how pumped I am to have 3 pure speed merchants rolling in opposite of Thomas. McLaurin, Clark, and Dixon can all FLY. I have a hard time believing any team in the country can single cover what we are going to roll out next Monday. You may be able to lock down one guy... But not 3 rotating and staying fresh. Seeing Clark rise seemingly out of the ashes here is awesome. He was one of my favorite recruiting stories in that class, suffered a nasty injury... And looks to be regaining form! O-H!!!

I hope Warren Ball returns a kickoff for a touchdown.  I've always been rooting for that guy lol

im with you Goalscorer! I feel like our fellow buckeye fans are assuming this kid cant play because he hasn't seen significant playing time. he's had stars in front of him and Warren Ball would start on half of the big ten teams this year. Please let him get a chance to return one!

I can't wait to see Braxton get his hands on the ball as kick returner!

Go Bucks!

What about this battle at kicker? I don't know if I see Sean Nuernberger keeping his spot

I apparently really care about kickers. Left over from the Vest days I guess!

so much talent there is no clear starter at so many positions.

Holy shit I can't wait for VTs first punt. I hope they're stupid enough to give Braxton a chance to return at least one

From my observations of all the practices that I attended and positional meetings that I sat in, this seems fairly accurate.

Take note at how much bigger the right side of the line gets for the 2nd team,starting at the center, 2-4 inches taller and heavier,left side stays the same or is just slightly smaller.
