Ohio State football: San Diego State depth chart

Week 2 has arrived and the Buckeyes get ready to host the San Diego State Aztecs on Saturday afternoon. We give you a deeper look into the depth chart itself.

Bradley Roby returns to the fray for the Buckeyes.

Once again, the offensive lineup doesn't change all that much. Kenny Guiton continues to backup Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller.

Last week Guiton was put into action when Miller went down with a cramp and led the Buckeyes to a scoring drive, proving once again Guiton may be one of the best backup quarterbacks in the country. For running backs, Jordan Hall is listed at the top of the depth chart once more after turning in an impressive performance last week against the Bulls. Carlos Hyde is still serving his suspension, and the backup to Hall is listed as Bri'onte Dunn OR Warren Ball, just like last week. We didn't get to see Dunn in the Buffalo game, but Ball had a few carries. Rod Smith isn't listed on the depth chart, but is expected to play against the Aztecs, coming off of his one-game suspension.

The receivers remain the same from week one, with Philly Brown OR Devin Smith starting at "X", Chris Fields at the H, and Evan Spencer at the Z. Jeff Heuerman remains the starter at tight end though much like last week both he and Nick Vannett will see plenty of playing time.

Amongst the changes across the board this week, Pat Elflein is now the backup at left guard behind Andrew Norwell, while Chase Farris, following his move to the defensive line, is no longer the backup. On the defense, Rashad Frazier is still listed as the OR backup, despite him having missed the Buffalo game due to injury. Formerly suspended preseason All-America candidate Bradley Roby is now the OR starter with Armani Reeves and Urban Meyer made it clear during the Big Ten Coaches Call that Roby will have to play his way in practice into a starting role.

The other changes were largely cosmetic. Gareon Conley is now the third string at the top cornerback spot with Cam Burrows being demoted off the depth chart; Conley had been the backup in Roby's absence. Corey Brown of the Pittsburgh variety is the OR starter with C.J. Barnett, who missed last week's game due to injury, and Conley is now the top backup at the other cornerback spot, bumping Eli Apple off the depth chart altogether.

Here are this week's depth charts as a whole:
