    Thanks Deadlift.Ben Jones is a Monster, and Clint Boling should have been 2nd or 3rd team as he's quite an athlete.

    The reason I put Boling as an HM is because I'm waiting see how he performs at his new position of Left Tackle.

    He definitely has the athleticism for it, but I want to see where his instincts are at.

    Seniors' Jeff Linkenbach (CINCINNATI) and Kyle Calloway (IOWA) are two more OT's to watch.

    Michigan's O-line looked very good against Western Michigan. We'll see if that continues as the schedule toughens.

    USC Center, Kris O'Dowd, who didn't start (or play) against San Jose, might start against Ohio State.

    LSU Center, T-Bob Hebert, looks like a real special athlete. He's carrying on the proud tradition of LSU centers.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Texas versus Wyoming this week.

    Clint Boling named SEC OL of the week following the UGA vs. SC game. Boling graded out at 94% in Saturday's game and was credited with 10 knockdown blocks.[​IMG]

    Colorado Buffaloes' Right Tackle - Bryce Givens' - is a true athlete. He's a freshman.

    His technique, and knowing who he's supposed to block, will surely improve with more experience. He appears to be a legit 6-6 and a lean 270-280 pounds.

    He seriously reminds me of Jon Stinchcomb. Those are big shoes, I know.

    On Monday, Skip Bayless called Alabama's O-Line "DOMINANT"... In my view, Michael Johnson and Barrett Jones are their best linemen.


    LG - Michael Johnson http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-Michael-Johnson-30524


    OC - William Vlachos http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/vlachos_william00.html


    RG - Barrett Jones http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/jones_barrett00.html

    RT - Drew Davis http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/davis_drew00.html

    Right now, the depth-chart looks alright. (Senior) Michael Johnson's 2 back-ups are now White (J.M. Boswell & Anthony Steen).

    Drew Davis' back-up is Tyler Love (http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/love_tyler00.html), and then there's a rotund sumo at 3rd string.

    Barrett Jones' back-up is black, but Barrett will be fine if he can stay healthy.
