    Can anyone tell me what where the major starters on O line and what year of school they are in.

    Also, I know that Freshman played on O line, but does anyone know who and how much.

    What were the rotations like.


    The one part of this team I didnt pay attention too was the O line, but I noticed in the ARK game we had a true Freshman out there. He got beat a good bit, but from the little I know about O lines, it is rare to have a young O line do really good. I could be wrong though...

    Also, how does our O line stack up for next year...

    For that matter, how about a center who can actually center the ball to where the ball has to go, WHEN the ball is supposed to go to the quarterback?:dis:

    I think that was Chris Faulk. I'm not real familiar with our line either but I know it's our most critical area of need outside our QB.

    Our center, P.J.Lonergan, is a soph. T Bob is a Jr. and I'm sure he's not going to be drafted.

    We lose Joseph Barksdale (OT) but return Alex Hurst- soph
    OG Josh Dworaczyk returns and RS Fr. Josh Williford and Will Blackwell (Jr.) also return.

    Williford has a lot of upside:
    We'll also return a TE who's a great receiver- Deangelo Peterson who is aJr. Chase Clement is behind him and is a soph.

    Our WR's will be back except for Toliver but I really think Randle is our best one and he's only a soph. If he's not our best I felt like JJ was more comfortable throwing to him cause he went to him a lot in clutch situations.

    At RB, Ridley and Ford...whew!

    Much talent and some OC should have a ball with what we return.

    Unfair. Lonergan has only had that one high snap all year. Jefferson just wasn't paying attention on the other one.

    I agree and thought that was a bit harsh too.

    So it would be a good assumption that Collins and White will see some good PT next year right?

    I don't care if they play Donald freakin' Duck next year, as long as it gets better at pass-blocking.

    True, but I think that the common trend among O lines is that the younger they are, the more likely they will struggle...


    Or at least, I thought it was rare for a young O line to stand out as one of the best in a conferenceā€¦ In the SEC no lessā€¦

    The offensive line is the least likely position for a freshman to play. You usually have to get smarter, bigger, and stronger for a couple of years to play OL in the SEC.
