Todd Boeckman (born June 8, 1984), is a quarterback who is currently a Free Agent . He was recruited in 2002, but red-shirted and grey-shirted, extending his stay with OSU for two more seasons. His age (24) makes him currently one of the oldest players in college football. After Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith graduated after the 2006 season, Boeckman beat out fellow quarterbacks Rob Schoenhoft and Antonio Henton for the starting job. In 2007, he passed for 2,375 yards and 25 TD's and was named first team Big Ten. He also led the Buckeyes to the BCS National Championship Game on January 7th, 2008. He threw for 208 yards, 2 touchdowns , and 2 interceptions as the Buckeyes fell to Louisiana State 38-24.

Boeckman entered the 2008 season as a 6th year Senior . He was named the starter for the 2008 season, however after losing 35 to 3 in the 2008 USC game, lost the starting job to Terrelle Pryor.

Boeckman was invited to tryout for the Cincinnati Bengals during their rookie mini camp, which concluded on May 3rd, 2009. Boeckman was among the tryout players not offered a free agent contract. Although Boeckman had a good workout with the Bengals, head coach Marvin Lewis stated that there were already four other quarterbacks on the roster, making it more difficult for Boeckman to land a contract.
