Ohio State Football: Post-Spring Projected Two-Deep

We’ve done a couple of these already, but now that we have the entire samples size of spring, including the Spring Game, we now have some more feedback from the coaches, play on the field, and observations to go by.

Spring is officially over, and here’s the latest on what we project the starting two-deep to be before all the true freshman that decided to stick around for prom enter the fray in the fall.

Quarterback

1. DWayne Haskins, Jr.
3. Tate Martell*

Here’s the deal. Both Dwayne Haskins and Joe Burrow have done nothing to lose the job, but haven’t done enough to win the job outright. I know the coaching staff is still meandering on who the starter will be, but it’s not like that’s going to become suddenly crystal clear after not doing so throughout the entire spring.

I still think when it’s all said and done, Haskins will be the guy because he has the most experience and has shown what he can do in a big game setting. The coaches won’t give Joe Burrow the stone cold lock of being the starter and he’ll transfer. That leaves a very capable Tate Martell as the backup.

Running Back

1. J.K. Dobbins
2. Mike Weber

We’ve seen nothing to change what we’ve known since the beginning — both Dobbins and Weber will get plenty of touches. But like last year, Dobbins is just a wee-bit more explosive and will elbow his way onto the fi.

But don’t for one moment sleep on Weber. He’s still as talented as almost anyone else in the Big Ten and will rip off some big ones this year as well.
