Hello everybody, and welcome back to the Mid-American page. Last week I got to travel to Columbus with my gorgeous girlfriend to watch my team, THE Ohio State Buckeyes, spring game. Many people are aware that in the past Ohio State has definitely had their picks at Quarterbacks. Well this year, I believe will be the hardest. This year, the Buckeyes have three QBs who look and have proved that they are ready to go.
Yes, I got to meet THE Tate Martell and I’m still stoked about it. However, that’s not the point here. Martell started for Team Scarlet and made plays all games that left you wondering why he wasn’t playing last year. Martell has elite athleticism and a pretty good arm that would be perfect in the Ohio State system. Martell seems to struggle with decision making and that may hurt late in a big game. Martell is ready to go and I would be perfect for the offense.
This guy should have, honestly, started last year over J.T. This kid is not the typical QB you would see in an Ohio State system. Haskins is a pro-style QB who reminds me of a more mobile Cardale Jones. Haskins has the most arm talent than any QB going in the draft this year and will make one NFL team extremely happy. I truly do not see any risk with him other than system issues with him. We have seen Haskins in big game situations…. and well you can ask how that team up north how good he is in crunch time 😉
An Ohio State fan favorite, former Mr. Football in Ohio, Joe Burrow. Burrow was a highly recruited dual-threat QB that most have forgotten about. Well, he reminded everybody who he was in the spring game. Burrow showed the leadership and that he can make any throw on the field. Burrow reminds me of J.T Barret (before he sucked). What adds to this battle is if Burrow doesn’t start, we may lose him. Burrow has been there for three years and feels that he is more than ready.
Who Would I Pick?
It is truly a shame that there isn’t a way to combine all three of them and make the best QB the world has ever seen. While I love Martell brings to the table, I do not think the maturity is there yet despite him making severest strides forward. Burrow, Ohio loves you and we want you to stay, but I do not think your threats make your skills look more appealing. With all that be said, I think your starter come September 1st will be Dwayne Haskins. Haskins has proven time and time again he is ready. He is cool and calm collected as they come. If he does well this year, best believe he will in next years draft.
What do you all think? Who do you think should take the reins of this explosive Ohio State offense? Let us know down in the comments! Always, thank you for tuning in on this fine Friday. Stay tuned for more fresh daily content from myself and the rest of the Mid-American crew!
