Cornerback is one of Ohio State's biggest positions of uncertainty going into the 2020 season.

Shaun Wade is back, but he's changing roles by moving from slot cornerback to outside cornerback. Sevyn Banks, Cameron Brown, Marcus Williamson and Tyreke Johnson all have potential, but they're unproven, and outside of Wade being locked in as a starter, we still don't know what the rest of the lineup will look like in Kerry Coombs' secondary. 

So we begin this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays by continuing our State of the Position series and discuss our expectations and concerns for Ohio State's cornerbacks, and just how important their success could be to the rest of the team. 

In anticipation of our upcoming draft for this year's Ohio State football team, we take a look back at our draft from last year (plus, a quick look back at our basketball draft) and consider who we drafted appropriately and who we overvalued (spoiler alert: Brendon White) and undervalued (Pete Werner and DaVon Hamilton, among others) going into last season. 

Picking up where we left off last week, we continue our Three Things We Think series with some of our burning thoughts from the past week, including why the Elite 11 should reconsider how it crowns its MVP, whether we should be talking more about Kyle McCord as Ohio State's potential starting quarterback in 2021 and why Jordan Fuller was underappreciated last season.

Finally, we answer a smorgasbord of listener questions including what we see as the potential for the 2020-21 Ohio State basketball team, which other coaches in the Big Ten we believe would be most successful as Ohio State's head coach and who would leave early for the NFL even if there's no football season this fall.
