While Columbus deals with the aftermath of Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressell's departures, there is still plenty of talent for the Buckeyes. Fullback Zach Boren shined some light on some players who have been impressing this off-season, mentioning quarterback Taylor Graham and running back Carlos Hyde. Braxton Miller is the star of the show, but Graham has Boren saying "he can throw the ball. He's very smart. Usually I'll have to yell out stuff when we're back in the backfield, but Taylor took control" while praising Hyde with "He's huge but he's the fastest of them all. You don't really realize how fast he is until he gets out in the open."
Even without DeVier Posey, Daniel Herron and others for the first five games of the season, the Buckeyes do have plenty of depth. The question is whether or not they have a signal caller who can lead them through the new Big Ten.
