Cornelius Lucas, Kansas State
Lucas thrived in his first true season as a starter, protecting Collin Klein's blindside at left tackle. Earning first-team All-Big 12 honors and helping the team rush for nearly 200 yards a game, Lucas has earned his stripes in one short season.
The Kansas State lineman stands in at 6'8", 330 pounds, and was a big reason the Wildcats only allowed 14 sacks last season.
Cyril Richardson, Baylor
Baylor has a few holes to fill on the offensive line, but things could've been much worse if Cyril Richardson decided to leave early for the NFL draft. Richardson was one of the best interior linemen in the country last season and will be the rock up front for the Bears this year.
Richardson is reliable in both run and pass protection and could find himself selected in the first-round of the 2014 draft if he continues to perform at a high level.
Gabe Ikard, Oklahoma
Gabe Ikard is a two-time All-Big 12 selection and this may be the year he finally wins the Rimington Trophy as the best center in college football. There are few centers you will find that are better in pass protection than Ikard. He has great footwork and has started a majority of the games for the Sooners over the last two seasons.
As long as Ikard can remain healthy, he should have no problem being named one of the best linemen in the Big 12 for the third straight season.
Trey Hopkins, Texas
Trey Hopkins has been that versatile player for Texas over the years and has been productive. He has played left guard, right tackle and then switched back to left guard last season. He has been a solid player even with all of the position changes over the years.
Hopkins was a second-team All-Big 12 selection last season and has started the last 29 games for the Longhorns.
Daryl Williams, Oklahoma
Daryl Williams was one of the many Sooners that was bitten by the injury bug, as he missed time due to a sprained MCL. Back and ready to go this season, Williams will prove to be one of the best tackles in the country. Williams has great athleticism and plays the game with an aggression that allows for him to finish blocks.
Williams will be extremely valuable to a unit that just couldn't stay healthy at all last year.
