26. Ohio State threw for 26 touchdowns in 2016. 19 of those touchdown passes were thrown to players who are no longer with the team, meaning returning Buckeyes only accounted for 7 of those touchdowns. The receiving corp has been lackluster these past couple years, and this year’s group needs to step up in a big way. The Buckeyes will look to get production from Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin, KJ Hill, Binjimen Victor, Austin Mack and Johnnie Dixon. All 6 had game experience last year, the most of which coming from Hill, Campbell and McLaurin, all of whom caught double-digit passes last season. With an extra year of experience under their belts and a new offensive coordinator in the mix, there’s good reason to believe that the Buckeyes will have one of the most potent passing attacks in the country. Especially if they can established the deep threat that’s been absent since Devin Smith left.
