MEYER LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD PLAYMAKERS THIS OFFSEASON

COLUMBUS — While the competition at quarterback seems to be the pressing issue when evaluating the 2015 Ohio State football team, it is certainly not the only item on the agenda.

Finding play-makers to replace departing stars like Devin Smith, Evan Spencer and Jeff Heuerman is perhaps the most important task this offseason in Columbus.

Sure, the Buckeyes definitely aren't void of play-making talent. They still have the best running back in the country residing on their roster in Ezekiel Elliott. They still have two top NFL prospects junior wide receiver Michael Thomas and junior tight end Nick Vannett, and up-and-coming wideout Corey Smith. And they still have the all-around explosiveness on the edges with receivers Jalin Marshall and Dontre Wilson.
