Hackenberg has had it easy when it comes to opposing defenses, but now he’ll be trying to hit his targets while they’re being covered by All-Americans and future All-Americans.

Doran Grant and Armani Reeves also have been big playmakers for the Buckeyes secondary, leaving Hackenberg little room for error.
