Moe Elewonibi was the 1989 Outland trophy winner, an award given to the most outstanding interior lineman in college football. Elewonibi was also a consensus All American and All-WAC first team that year.
John Tait made the All-WAC first team in back-to-back years (1997 and 1998). In the NFL, Tait played in 148 games and started 139 of them.
As a center, Bart Oates protected quarterback Jim McMahon during the early 1980's. As a senior, he was second-team All-American behind Nebraska's two-time Outland Trophy winner Dave Rimington. He was later voted to the WAC All-Decade Team in the 1980s. Oates won three Super Bowls in the NFL.
Evan Pilgrim started at guard his sophomore and junior seasons, before being halted by an ankle injury. In 1993, he was on the Honorable Mention All-WAC team, and in 1994, he was a second-team All-American and a first-team All-WAC player.
Matt Reynolds finished his career at BYU in December, and is one of the greatest tackles the Cougars have ever seen. A four-year starter, he was on the Outland Trophy Watch List, was a Lombardi Award Candidate, and a Lowe's Senior Class Award Nominee. Although he did not win any of those awards, Reynolds was a member of the Phil Steele All-Independent First Team, Yahoo! Sports All-Independent Team, and the FBS All-Independent Team. He is a current member of the Carolina Panthers in the NFL.
