Buckeyes have work to do on hurry-up offense
Simon, who led the team in sacks last year with seven, likes the pace of this spring’s practices.
“I would say practices are a little more enthusiastic, a lot more fast tempo,” he said. “It’s good for us, that’s what we need. It’s making guys think on their feet and think fast. That’s how games are played, so it’s getting us prepared.”
Mike Vrabel, a former Ohio State and NFL player now in his second year on staff, is coaching the defensive line this year after handling linebackers last season.
What does he expect most from the players?
“We’re going to play physical, we’re going to play square and we’re going to play with violent hands,” he said. “We do those three things, we’ll be graded positively. If we’re able to go from point A to point B as fast as we can, and compete for the length of a play, we’re going to have a good D-line.”
Meyer is succinct about how the lines have played so far during workouts.
“We have a first-string offensive line that is adequate. Obviously they have to be better than adequate. But they’re getting better. The backups are not. We’ve got a problem,” he said. “On the defensive line, I’m seeing we’re developing a little bit of depth and some good players. John Simon is just playing lights out right now.”
