Silver Bullets Podcast — 2021 Ohio State Sleepers

Before the Ohio State football program paused all activities due to COVID-19 concerns on Tuesday morning, Chip Minnich and I convened to record a new episode of the Silver Bullets Podcast. So, while you won’t hear anything on this week’s show related to the pause in activity, you will hear us discuss every position group on the Buckeye offense and defense (and a brief mention of some key special teams roles as well).

A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the Buckeyes on the offensive line and how that group projects heading into the 2021 season, but we felt like there are other Buckeye Scoop shows (that drop more often) are doing a good job of previewing the various positions. So instead of continuing on with that theme, this week, we’re picking our sleepers from each group — guys who we think will flash in 2021. This could take many forms. It could be a surprising starter, a key backup, or just someone who will make an unexpected impact in some way. These are the guys we’re not sleeping on as the 2021 season approaches. Some have been in the program a few years and others are just getting started.

The first half of the show is a position-by-position look at the guys who we think will flash on offense and we tackle the defense (figuratively speaking) after the break. Let us know who you think we missed on and which ones you think we got right. We’ll circle back at the end of the 2021 season and see how close we came to nailing it.

If you’ve got something you’d like to ask us in our mailbag section, hit us up
on Twitter at @Mike36fan and @ChipMinnich and answers will be provided on the next episode.

Enjoy this week’s show. Thanks for listening.
