Terrelle Pryor running Ohio State's offense against the first-team defense

Ohio State runs a two-minute drill during practice

You can see Terrelle Pryor complete two passes to No. 5 Taurian Washington and one short dumpoff to No. 3 Brandon Saine during this two-minute drill that featured Ohio State's No. 1 offense against the No.1 defense today.

Let's run down who we saw on the Buckeyes' first team and second team during the second practice of the preseason.

The first team offense

QB - Terrelle Pryor
TB - Dan Herron (But Brandon Saine worked in there as well.)
FB - Adam Homan
WR - Dane Sanzenbacher
WR - Taurian Washington
WR - Lamaar Thomas (This position was complicated by the continued absence of Ray Small and the minor ding to DeVier Posey. Jim Tressel said Posey has been taking only partial reps while dealing with a small injury, it sounded like it might be a hamstring, and he was out there working on his own in some drills for much of practice.)
TE - Jake Ballard
LT - Mike Adams and Andy Miller splitting time
LG - Justin Boren
C - Mike Brewster
RG - Bryant Browning
RT - J.B. Shugarts

The first team defense

DE - Thaddeus Gibson
DT - Dexter Larimore
DT - Doug Worthington
DE - Cameron Heyward (There were times when Heyward was lined up inside with Worthington outside when his foursome was on the field. Also, when the Buckeyes were in their nickel defense for the two-minute drill in the video, Nathan Williams was on the field at defensive end, joined by Gibson, Heyward and Worthington. I think that's a nice alignment on passing downs for the Buckeyes.)
SLB - Austin Spitler
MLB - Brian Rolle
WLB - Ross Homan (When the Buckeyes went nickel, it was Homan and Spitler who stayed on the field as the two linebackers most of the time.)
CB - Chimdi Chekwa
CB - Devon Torrence and Andre Amos splitting time
S - Anderson Russell
S- Kurt Coleman
Star - Jermale Hines (This is the nickelback spot, which is really a starting job on this defense. In the nickel defense in the video, Hines was in there with Homan and Spitler.)

hatin all year round i see...

dont worry pryor is SICKKKK!

he ran a 4.33

4.33 40 is significantly faster than any quarterback has run for the electronic clocks at the NFL Combine in the last four years, including Pat White (who turned in an official 4.55 in February at 197 pounds), and in fact more than a full tenth of a second faster than any running back or cornerback ran at this year's combine.

Terrelle Pryor is listed at 235 pounds... at least 225 if u ask me.
