    JAXON SMITH-NJIGBA, WR
    Being a star player often goes a long way toward being selected as a captain, and outside of Stroud, there’s no bigger star on the Buckeyes than Smith-Njigba. And now that Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson are in the NFL, Ohio State is counting on JSN to be a leader of the receiver room right alongside Babb.

    “Jaxon’s a guy that needs to be a leader,” Mickey Marotti said in May. “A leader has to be felt, a leader has to be heard, a leader has to be seen every day, all the time.”

    Marotti said he was “busting his chops” with that challenge to Smith-Njigba, but the fact that Smith-Njigba was selected to be one of Ohio State’s Big Ten Media Days representatives suggests Smith-Njigba has responded to that challenge.

    He might be more of a leader by example than a demonstrative vocal leader, but so was Chris Olave, and Olave was a captain last year. And Smith-Njigba’s fellow receivers have seen him become more of a leader this offseason, with Harrison describing Smith-Njigba this spring as “motivated more than anybody here, probably.”
