Lande shared his highly anticipated preseason list on Tuesday morning's "BTN Football & Beyond."

To no surprise, Ohio State all-world defensive end Joey Bosa tops the list. Heck, Bosa comes in at No. 1 on his top prospects overall.

It's easy to see why so many experts predict Ohio State to defend its national title after one look at this list; the Buckeyes occupy four of the top 5 spots.

The lone non-Ohio State player in the top 5? That's Michigan State defensive end Shilique Calhoun.
