Dwayne Haskins and Joe Burrow, in some order, are the favorites to start at quarterback when Ohio State opens against Oregon State.

That's not a slight to redshirt freshman Tate Martell. A former four-star prospect, Martell is a unique blend of talent in the Buckeye quarterback room.

Martell, speaking to media before Ohio State's pro day kicked off in earnest at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, said "it's already been confirmed" to him that special packages will ensure he sees the field regardless of winning the starting job or not.

From Eleven Warriors staff writer Kevin Harrish:

Martell has a history of brash statements. This isn't to say he's suffering from delusions of grandeur. Rather, that it's a long haul between March and September. Offensive plans at this time of year are notoriously fluid, and Urban Meyer knows how to keep green-eared players engaged. 

Quarterbacks coach Ryan Day offered analysis on Martell's strengths, via 97.1 The Fan producer Mike Young:

A special package featuring Martell, if it comes to fruition, would certainly offer intrigue.
