Munford and Runyan are both second-year starters, actually. And to the original comment, Munford was mentioned within the story as a candidate I considered – it's tough to pick just two, and I tried to avoid simply defaulting to Ohio State players unless I truly felt they were the strongest candidate.
A case could definitely be made for that. Personally, I think defensive tackle is one of the toughest positions to rank on the entire team – hence why none were drafted in the top 22 picks – I think it's genuinely possible that any of the top six defensive tackles could be one of the Buckeyes' best defensive tackles this year. Works out well for Larry Johnson, because he'll be able to rotate and play them all regularly, but makes it tough to say that any one is definitively better than another.
Only reason Togiai went undrafted (and I think Colin would agree) is he plays the same position as Robert Landers and Davon Hamilton. He stood out to me as one of the first players I'd want to add to my team if we were drafting backups, because he'd probably be the starting nose tackle right now for most college football teams, but because he's still the third-string nose tackle for Ohio State this year, it was going to be tough for him to get drafted here.

I wasn't trying to suggest that all of them should be captains. Just running through all the potential candidates.
Guiton was a captain in 2013, and there have been a few other examples of non-starters as captains too, such as Joe Burger in 2016.
