Depth at a couple of positions is a key issue as Meyer assesses 1st few days of fall camp

Urban Meyer likes the players he has at Ohio State.

He just wishes he had more of them in spots.

Speaking after the third practice of camp on Tuesday, the second-year coach of the Buckeyes says his biggest concerns about his 2013 team are a lack of quality depth at linebacker and on the offensive line.

Based on a very small sampling of live workouts, Meyer says he's pleased with what he's seen from a few freshmen, some other previously unproven players and especially quarterback Braxton Miller.

Meyer called the current practices "candy" compared to more grueling two-a-days coming next week.

The Buckeyes opened camp Sunday and will slowly change the focus from drills and learning the playbook to concentrating on the opener Aug. 31 against Buffalo.
