With Big Ten Media Days and preseason camp on the horizon, it's time for our annual Ohio State football team draft for Real Pod Wednesdays.

As we did last year, Colin and Dan went back and forth selecting players from Ohio State's 2021 roster to build dueling 22-man rosters – 11 players on offense and 11 players on defense – with the objective of building a lineup that would beat the co-host's lineup in a head-to-head game right now.

Listen into this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays to hear us make all 44 of our picks, analyze why we made those picks and react to each other's selections as the draft unfolded. You can also check out the full rosters at this link, where you can also vote for which one of our teams would win the game.

In the final five minutes of this week's episode, we also talk about the Ohio State men's basketball team's addition of Cedric Russell and what his role could be in the Buckeyes' backcourt this year.
