Of the playoff teams i think i would rate them 2015 > 2018 > 2017 > 2016. I might be overrating the 2015 group a little, but that was a good group.

The best o-lineman in 15 was either MacClain or Hyatt. The fact that Hyatt was in consideration and is now 3 years more experienced gives a huge bump to the possibility that this year's line is better.

I also think we could be a little more balanced on the line this year. Many of the guys in 15 and 16 were either good pass blockers or good run blockers. I think more guys this year can do both well.

In all honesty it's hard to find a final place for this year's line until they show it on the big stage like the other 3 got to do.


No question this is the better O-line...

of the last several years...
Guillermo, Crowder, Morris, and Hearn, McClain were pretty good, without a doubt... but this years squad has size, strength and experience:

Tremayne Anchrum (672snaps), Justin Falcinelli (673 snaps), Mitch Hyatt (739 snaps), John Simpson (snaps 730),

Gage Cervenka (467snaps), Sean Pollard (441), Cade Stewart (254)

Add to them our third stringers... Jackson Carman (195), Matt Bockhorst (161), Zach Giella (114), Blake Vinson (77),

I think it's why we run the ball so much better than over the past several years. Ellington and Gallman were great backs but Etienne, Lyn-J, and Feaster, Choice, Dexter, and Wilkins have had plenty of room to run.

Hope you are right.

Our O line got bent over the table by Bama in the Big Easy back on January 1st.

We had all veterans then.

I sure as #### hope so... Bryant had no time to operate last year. TL gets the ball out quicker and more accurate so it should help this group look better.


No it's not

Our pass pro has been pretty atrocious at times, but since Lawrence is a better passer than Kelly Brant the line has been getting a lot of help so they 'look' better. Last year our line looked like #### because teams were loading the line because of Kelly Brant.

1 or 2 sacks in the last 5 games along with being top 10 in rushing as well as total O says our OL has been really really good.
