Is Mitch Hyatt the best CU Olineman of all time?

I've been watching Tiger football for 35 years and he's the best I can ever remember.I believe he has given up only a handful of sacks in his 3 years?


the Bostic boys were awesome.***

Really doubt it. He's good, but I've mostly seen him

projected as a ~3rd round pick.


Plenty of mocks have him in the first round***

Which Clemson o linemen has been drafted in the first or second rounds? If he went in the 3rd he would be the highest drafted o linemen that I can remember

And to answer the OP, yes he is. I agree with u 100%


Modern day (last 20yrs), I'd say he's 1 or 2

Hyatt was better younger, but by the end of his career Brandon Thomas was IMO the best modern day lineman we've had.

Thomas was a good one indeed

Joe Bostic was the best I've seen. I go back to the early 70's. There were surely some great ones way back.

Mitch is a great tackle, if I had to cast a vote for the best lineman I would vote for Lou "Big Momma" Cordileone. Played both ways and was a force to be reckoned with.

Lou Cordileone was spectacular. Not many on here have a clue

about who he was. Played in late 50s and early 60s. He was from NY or New Jersey as I recall.

Lou hailed from Jersey City.

Very good ... not NFL great ... not a run blocker ...

Can be beat on edge with speed and power. A very talented college player.

He wins WAY more than he loses. Don’t make

Brad Fisher, James Farr, Tony Berryhill, Brian Clark, Lee Nanney

Jeff Bostic, Joe Bostic

They set the standard.

Harry O, Wayne Mass

Agreed. I’d love to know the home addresses of the bozos that have listed him as second team tackle. He will have to put 10-15 pounds on to excel at the next level but he has every tool on the checklist otherwise. Love me some Mitch Hyatt!


One of the absolute best, for sure.

Hard to say who is THE best.

Dalton Freeman was pretty dang good too .

Isaiah Battle... Best display of a right uppercut and side-step to ever put on a Clemson uniform.


Two words, make that three

Joe Freakin’ Bostic


Re: Is Mitch Hyatt the best CU Olineman of all time?


Posted: Dec 12, 2017 10:27 PM
 

Harry Olszewski was the best.

Respectfully, as great as Harry was, you just cannot compare offensive linemen from 1966 to 2017.

Harry was 5’10”, maybe 240lb. He’d have a hard time playing any position on the field in today’s game. We have just advanced far too much in training, genetics, nutrition, strength and all facets... just wouldn’t be fair to put Harry and Mitch side-by-side. Every era has had its greats, and a select few could transcend decades (the Fridge in his prime, Bo Jackson, etc.), but I’m not buying this one. Lol


Bostic brothers were GREAT? AND heard of Stacy Long?***

I would have to agree with many of the other posters, the Bostic Brothers

Joe - 10 years in the NFL

Jeff - 3 time super bowl champ, also added to the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame.

Not that Hyatt isn't a great player and hopefully he will have a long successful nfl career, just not sure about best ever.


I would have to say the Bostic boys were better. Back in

those days, we were going to run it, we knew we were going to run it, the opposing team knew we were going to run it, and those boys cleared the way anyway. Hard to compare different eras anyway, but I would give the nod to them.
