This unit will no doubt be the linchpin to our 10 plus win season in 2014. Watching Taylor Lewan on NFL Network inspired me to gander at our O Line situation for next season.
Here is what I project. What do you guys think?

Most of these fellas will have 2 years in the program and should be physically ready to compete at a Big Ten level. The issue should NOT be run blocking. I forsee issues in Pass Pro particularly with two new tackles. This is not good for Gardner who doesn't show the most patience in the pocket. This could potentially lead to so ill advised scrambles or just plain leave us susceptible to stout D lines....unfortunately along the lines of what MSU and Ohio will be rolling out. Given the loss of Butt, it appears MAJOR work needs to be put in by this group come August to regain our BiG title form. It can be done...but it will be an uphill battle. This is a very green bunch....albeit it a very talented one. Go BLue!!!
