Oregon Football: What You Need to Know About the Ducks' Offensive Line in 2012
Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The upcoming college football season will see the Oregon Ducks fielding a new quarterback and a sorta new starting running back. Gone from last year's Rose Bowl-winning offense are also Mr. Clutch, tight end David Paulson (to the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers), and sure-handed Lavasier Tuinei (to the Seattle Seahawks.)

With new starters at these key offensive positions, an experienced O-line will be more important than ever. Lost to graduation was starting tackle Darrion Weems, who was picked up and released by the Minnesota Vikings before eventually finding his way onto the New England Patriots. Weems' buddy on the line, fellow senior Mark Asper, is also gone to the NFL, having been selected by the Buffalo Bills in the sixth round.

But even with the loss of such big talents as Weems and Asper, this year's offensive line—while not intact—has experienced players and a very promising newcomer. So, take a deep breath, Duck fans: the O-line looks pretty darn good.
