2. Buckeyes Can Stuff The Box

In the most recent depth chard, the linebackers remain the same with Joshua Perry at weak outside linebacker, Raekwon McMillan in at middle linebacker, and Darron Lee at strong outside linebacker.

Speed and smarts is what makes this crew so good, and they’ll need to be in coverage, and in filling in the gaps to stop the nation’s leading rusher, Jordan Howard. He racked up 168 yards last week against Wake Forest–garnering Big Ten Player of the Week recognition, but Wake Forest isn’t Ohio State.

McMillan came to Ohio State as a five-star recruit, and he showed why last week, tallying 16 total tackles. Lee is regarded as a future first-round NFL Draft pick.

Up front the Buckeyes have that Joey Bosa guy, along with Adolphus Washington, who is quickly becoming a top NFL prospect.

Washingon had that big interception for a touchdown in Week 3, and will play a key role in stopping the run.
