2. TreVeyon Henderson

When TreVeyon Henderson was a freshman, he was a beast. He ran for 1,248 yards and 15 touchdowns while also adding 312 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns. He was a weapon that the Buckeyes loved using in multiple situations all over the field.

Then Henderson got hurt in 2022 and was in and out of the lineup. Last season, he got hurt again, spraining his ankle. He decided to come back this season to have a full healthy senior season. After rushing for 926 yards and 11 touchdowns, he's ready to explode.

With Chip Kelly calling the plays, expect the Ohio State football team to get more creative in how they run the ball. Some of the rush plays that Ryan Day called were stale. The offensive line wasn't getting enough push up front to make any holes happen for the running backs. That was the issue last year.

Henderson made some plays happen out of nothing last season. The offensive line is still a concern this season but the addition of Seth McLaughlin should help. The hope is that Kelly can get Justin Frye to perform better since he used to be Frye's boss at UCLA when they ran the ball well.

Having a mobile quarterback helps Henderson too. There could be an element of read option that the Buckeyes haven't had since Justin Fields. Some misdirection could help Henderson get some bigger holes to run through.

The final person this list is a guy who shares the backfield with Henderson.
