The Ohio State Buckeyes are gearing up for the 2013 season with high expectations.

Their offensive line, eventhough they lost Reid Fragel to the NFL, is as sturdy as it has been in awhile with four starters returning and sophomore Taylor Decker looking to make an impact at right tackle.

At 6’7, 315-pounds, Decker is hulking and very powerful. The Vandalia-Butler High School grad played in all 12 games last season for Ohio State.

Taylor is seeking to replace the beforementioned Fragel, an NFL Draft pick in the 7th round by the Cincinnati Bengals.

The other members of the offensive line include senior Jack Mewhort at left tackle, senior Andrew Norwell at left guard, senior Corey Linsley at center and Sr. Marcus Hall at right guard.

Going into the 2012 season, the Buckeyes offensive line was considered its weakest line as the line underachieved under former line coach Jim Bollman. But the unit came together under the tutelage of Ed Warriner and finished the season as the best in the Big Ten.
