Ohio State Football: Joey Bosa projected to be Big Ten sack leader in 2014

There’s no doubt that the Ohio State football team will have one of the best defensive lines in the country coming up this season, however as with any unit, there is usually one player that stands apart from the rest. For the Buckeyes, that young man on the defensive line is defensive end Joey Bosa.

In 2013, his first year on the field, Bosa was all over the place, registering 44 total tackles including 13.5 for loss with 7.5 sacks.

That last number there, the sacks, is where folks expect him to shine the most, and that includes ESPN Big Ten expert Brian Bennett.

When asked recently who he believes will lead the conference in sacks this season, he pointed out Bosa immediately.

But I’m going with the guy who might have the highest ceiling of all. That’s Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa. He had 7.5 sacks as a true freshman, which is a pretty remarkable achievement. Bosa was good all year, but he really impressed me in the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson when he basically played on one leg because of an ankle injury. He is a freakish athlete with a nonstop motor and a desire to be the best. Those qualities virtually assure we’re looking at a future superstar.

No one, especially Ohio State fans, is going to argue with the sentiments of Bennett above, and for the Buckeyes’ sake, we all hope that he is right.
