I like what I see enough to be excited. You don't get experience until you have it and thankfully, OSU is rich at very key spots-OL, LB, and most of all QB. I also feel drastically better about the worst case option of Fields going down with the talent coming in (I won't speak that voodoo into existence but injuries happen).
LB play is going to be crucial for the defense but I think this DL can be better than the sum of its parts (even though it has some really sweet parts). The secondary worries me right now, at present, as I think Wade will be a lock down but a second and third CB need to emerge. I'm both over the moon and terrified of Josh Proctor at safety. I think he can be a star but I think he'll have some aggravating moments mixed in there, where as Fuller was just solid and steady as they came. I think Proctor has the ability to make and miss plays that change games. Let's hope for more of the former and less of the latter.
As for WR....Oh man. The thought of a pissed off Olave and budding Wilson is awesome to think about while the insane crop of young guns gets their legs underneath them.
I like the idea of OSU's best run blockers returning, Davis may be a first round pick before its all said and done. Really excited to see who emerges at the other tackle spot, assuming they don't slide Mumford inside?
Unit wise, I feel like the offense has its stars-Fields and Olave are established and I think Wilson is the next big thing. Defensively they need impact players. Wade is the likely option but a corner can sometimes affect games by just not allowing things to happen (meaning he can't make plays if he isn't thrown at). We have been spoiled by elite DE after elite DE after elite DE so I think that guy has to emerge too-we are all looking at Zach for this as he has the pedigree and did flash.
A lot of words here to say that I'm thrilled about some spots, excited about some spots, nervous about some spots, and terrified of a few.
I still trust Day and company to keep this machine moving.
