ESPN ranks SEC's OLs
 
Team Rankings

Huge props. I'm hoping we see this on the field this year.

Have to mention how crucial it is to have Mike Matulis back healthy. If Corey Robinson improves even a little bit, our line should destroy people. Speed rushers might be their only kryptonite.

That LSU line is going to be nasty.

aTm being ranked that high scares me too. Gosh I hope their QB play sucks.

A&M will play a true freshman vs SC, plus their line didn't really impress me last year. Johnny made a lot of plays on scrambles

We average out at 11 on O when you average all the rankings together.

I really think our offense will be better than that.

What does SC's average to be? Has to be up pretty high?

QB was what 6?
RB 3?
WR 6?
OL 1

That would be 4th if I am right.

Look at Georgia...wow. Don't think I've ever seen them that low. If true, with a new QB, that could get interesting.

Between 2012 and 2013 we went from 82nd in the nation in rushing (3.7 yards per carry with 1,800 total rushing yards) to 32nd in the nation (4.8 yards per carry with 2,580 rushing yards). And sacks dropped from 38 to 23. If our OL play shows half the improvement this year as it did last our offense will be hard to stop.

Your most important personnel group in college is the line. You don't have it weighted right, South Carolina used to be better at WR and had no line, we sucked.

Thank you Coach Elliot, great job and I hope to see the labor of your work on the field this year blowing SEC defenses up! With blocking Davis is going to be unstoppable and with time Thompson is going to pick people apart with the weapons we have....If Whammy can get the D right we will be dangerous come fall!

I agree.

And this is where statistics will fool you.

According to Phil Steele's blog, we are 8th in the SEC and 78th nationally in "% of Yards Returning" with only 58.61% returning.

Production returning with in the SEC:
1. Arkansas - 84.10%
2. Miss St. - 80.01%
3. Auburn - 78.89%
4. Tennessee - 75.41%
5. Ole Miss - 69.85%
6. Kentucky - 61.86%
7. Florida - 58.75%
8. South Carolina - 58.61%
9. Alabama - 57.75%
10. Georgia - 48.64%
11. Missouri - 34.40%
12. Vanderbilt - 32.46%
13. A&M - 24.00%
14. LSU - 18.04%


When you first hear that stat you're like "oh crap" but IMO, I would rather have inexperience at the skill positions than the OLine

Just FYI, Clemson is #121 w/ 26.84%

That may be true, but A&M is loaded on offense, particularly at the skill positions. If we don't get a pass rush, we're in for a long night.

Well we had a good line last year and weren't there in skill talent.

We sucked then too!

Lowe got this right, 4 starting OL and 9 of the 10 on the 2 Deep are returning. Throw in the Top 3 TE's returning from last year and we have a lot of depth.

Robinson is going to eat Myles Garrett alive all game long. 240 lb freshman vs a 320+ lb senior who's started 22 games. He might beat Robinson once or twice with speed but I have a feeling Robinson has been told all offseason that that's what he struggles with and has been working on it. At least I hope he's been working on his feet and pass protecting.

Got to have a QB to consistently get those weapons the ball. They will be starting a true freshman or a sophomore with 22 pass attempts and ZERO SEC experience. I foresee inconsistency for them offensively in that ball game. Our DB's have to cover well though because even an old man can hit a wide open receiver most of the time.

Remember they didn't even have a spring game, they just did a live scrimmage in which the sophomore was suspended for.

I hope this is sarcasm on your part. If not, where is your high opinion of your team coming from? Remember going 3-9 2 years ago? Just because Malzahn's offense is so hard to stop doesn't actually mean your team is that great. Ya'll lucked out of 3 losses last year.

If you'd remember 2 years ago Auburn tried to transition to a pro-style offense with spread personnel, and it went horribly. Auburn's always had the talent. What does lucking out of losses have to do with the O-line? Stay on topic.

Auburn had the #1 O-line last year. They lost the #2 draft pick. His replacement, Shon Coleman got plenty of playing time last season. 2 very good guards and the odds on favorite to win the Remmington Award at center.
