CB: Shaun Wade, Ohio State

The Buckeyes were holding their breath that they wouldn't lose both Jeff Okudah and Wade to the NFL draft. So when Wade elected to return for his redshirt junior season, it was a huge relief for the Ohio State defensive staff. The 6-1, 195-pound Wade has the size and versatility to play several different spots in the secondary and will now get a chance to be the Buckeyes' lockdown corner after finishing second to Okudah last season with eight pass breakups.


G: Wyatt Davis, Ohio State

From the time he was pressed into a starting role as a redshirt freshman during the Buckeyes' stretch run in 2018, Davis has been a huge piece of the Ohio State offense. He returns for his third season after earning first-team All-America honors a year ago as the Buckeyes' right guard. He'll do so with two other talented underclassmen up front who decided to return to school, center Josh Myers and tackle Thayer Munford, which ought to make returning Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields mighty happy.


You could very easily make a case for Fields as well, but given that he and Lawrence are going to be battling all season for the #1 spot I don't think there's a wrong choice at the moment.
