Ohio State's 2020 football team will take the field for its first spring practice of the year in just a few days, but first, 11 former Buckeyes will participate in this week's NFL Scouting Combine.

That's where our focus is turned in this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays, as we preview what we'll see from the former Buckeyes in Indianapolis this week and from the current Buckeyes at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center starting next week.

The first half of this week's show is all about the upcoming spring practice season. What are the position battles that will play out over the next two months, what are the areas we'll be watching most closely this spring and what are the areas you should not read too much into this spring? We discuss all of that in our final spring preview before Ohio State's first football practice of 2020 on Monday.

After that, we segue into the combine and discuss which former Buckeyes could help their NFL draft stocks most with their performances in Indianapolis and which Ohio State draft prospects we believe deserve more attention.

Finally, we discuss the latest developments for Ohio State men's basketball after they bounced back from an 85-76 loss to Iowa with a 79-72 win over Maryland. Can the Buckeyes' play against the Terrapins lead them to sustainable success in March, and how could potential missed time for Kyle Young affect Ohio State down the stretch? Our conversation on those topics wrap up this week's episode.
