Terrelle Pryor would definitely be in the top two of this list if he was able to play an entire season. However, he will be forced to miss five games due to the suspension for violating NCAA regulations. However, his impact will still be huge because he will be back for the conference games on Ohio State's schedule.
He has the game experience (including big games) and the knowledge of the offensive schemes of Jim Tressel and Jim Bollman. In 2011-2012, he vastly improved his passing game (65 percent in passing percentage) and threw for almost 2,800 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Pryor was also able to run for 754 yards and four more scores. Because he wanted to develop into more of a pocket passer, Pryor only resorted to running with the ball as the last option. His decision-making can be debatable at times, but he seems to produce more positive outcomes than mistakes.
As far as experience, he has led Ohio State to at least a share of the Big Ten title three times. He also has the ability to lead in big games with close losses to Wisconsin (both '08 and '10) and Texas while winning big games against Oregon, Arkansas, Iowa and being undefeated against Michigan.
The issues for Pryor are that he needs to improve passing efficiency and his decision-making. In addition, missing five games obviously impacts his potential contribution for Ohio State in 2011-2012. How Ohio State will react without him, in the first five games, can't be entirely predicted, but missing an integral piece such as Pryor will definitely be significant.
Overall, Terrelle Pryor should lead Ohio State to win the Leaders division and appear in the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis.
