Jack Sawyer appeared in all 13 games for Ohio State as a true freshman in 2021. Now, the former 5-star prospect looks to improve and post a breakout performance in 2022.

In the past, Ohio State has had a long lineage of elite pass rushers with Chase Young and Nick and Joey Bosa as recent contributors. Unfortunately, no player coming off the edge had a standout performance in 2021.

Fortunately, PFF analyst Anthony Treash believes Sawyer could change that narrative this season.

Sawyer did have 3 sacks and 3 TFL as a true freshman but will need to improve on that production if he is to blossom into a leader on the defense. Already Sawyer appears to be on track for a potential starting job in 2022 as a true sophomore.

We’ll see if he can make a big Year 2 jump in Columbus. Ohio State gets started Sept. 3 vs. Notre Dame.
