The Big Ten just released the conference's preseason players to watch list, and it included two Buckeyes who have made it on several other position watch lists, running back Ezekiel Elliott and defensive end Joey Bosa.

Also named from the East Division to the preseason players to watch list were Penn State defensive lineman Anthony Zettel, as well as Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook and DE Shilique Clahoun.

The players to watch from the West Division were Wisconsin running back Corey Clement and safety Michael Caputo, Iowa defensive lineman Drew Ott, Northwestern wideout Justin Jackson, and Nebraska defensive lineman Maliek Collins and wide receiver De'Mornay Pierson-El.

The list includes the defending Big Ten Nagurski-Woodson Defensive Player and Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year (Bosa), as well as the 2013 Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year (Calhoun). Bosa, Calhoun and Zettel were all first-team All-Big Ten honorees last year, and Caputo, Collins, Cook and Ott received second-team honors.
