If you watch the Boise State offensive line closely you will be impressed with how much they do.
From pulling, run blocking, pass blocking, down field blocking and all sorts of different blocking schemes that require timing and strength, it is safe to say that this is not your grandfather's offensive line.
Offensive Line Grades
Brenel Myers had a solid day at right tackle, and Spencer Gerke looked great at right guard. Both of these guys were all over the field making blocks and doing their job.
Matt Paradis did a good job again at center. He was consistent and continues to impress in the fact that not a single snap all season has gone somewhere it shouldn't have.
Grade for Brenel Myers: A-
Grade for Spencer Gerke: A-
Grade for Matt Paradis: A-
Joe Kellogg is going to get a little bit of attention in the film room.
"Why?" you might ask.
Well, if you saw the game then you watched as Joe Kellogg plowed his helmet into the chest of a defender laying on the ground. The problem is that it was after the play.
He was called for a penalty, and it negated a nice run by D.J. Harper. However, the rest of the day Kellogg played lights out.
Grade for Joe Kellogg: B+
Charles Leno Jr. had the best game of any of the offensive lineman. Not only did he do his job, but he did it well.
Several times during the game you could see Leno running down field and making nice blocks. However, it was his touchdown saving tackle that gave him extra credit.
When Joe Southwick threw his only interception of the day, it was Leno who tackled the defender and possibly saved a Wyoming touchdown. By the way, it was an open field tackle.
Grade for Charles Leno Jr.: A+
