On today’s episode, I chat with Land-Grant Holy Land co-managing editor Gene Ross about the biggest news of the week: which Buckeyes are heading to the NFL and which Buckeyes are coming back for another year in Columbus.

We look at how Chris Olave’s return impacts the wide receiver room and what him being back can tell us about C.J. Stroud and Jack Miller’s — and Kyle McCord’s for that matter — potential to lead the 2021 Buckeyes back to the College Football Playoff.

We also discuss the potential for true-freshman Jack Sawyer to make an impact on the defensive line this fall, while also breaking down what we think the linebacker and defensive back rotations will look like.

Finally, we do a quick run around the draft potential for the Buckeyes now headed to the NFL. Where will players like Justin Fields, Shaun Wade, Tommy Togiai, and Trey Sermon end up at the next level?
