David Yankey, Stanford Cardinal
Stanford has produced some quality offensive linemen over the years, and Yankey is the next guy to have stepped to the plate.
The team captain was a part of a Stanford offensive line that allowed only 15 sacks in 13 games. He also opened running lanes that led to 210 rushing yards per game.
Don't be surprised if Yankey leaves school a year early to go pro.
Jake Matthews, Texas A&M Aggies
Matthews replaced former Aggie Luke Joeckel to protect Johnny Manziel's blindside. He did his job fairly well. Texas A&M only allowed 20 sacks in 12 games, and a lot of those were due to Manziel holding onto the ball a little too long.
Matthews consistently kept the pressure off of last year's Heisman winner and even has NFL scouts drooling over his ability.
Hroniss Grasu, Oregon Ducks
Ask who is the brain behind Oregon's explosive offense, and you'll probably get several different answers. Unfortunately, center Hroniss Grasu's name may never pop up.
Once again, he was the leader of Oregon's offense line and helped the Ducks lead the Pac-12 with 278 rushing yards per game. The team was also solid in pass protection, allowing only 16 sacks in 12 games.
Luckily, Grasu has announced that he'll return to school for one more season.
Cyril Richardson, Baylor Bears
Ever wonder how Baylor is able to produce off-the-wall numbers offensively? Well, you try to get past a guy who stands in at 6'5" and weighs 340 pounds.
Richardson was the go-to guy on Baylor's offensive line, as a lot of the runs went to his side. The result was an average of 264 rushing yards per game, which led the Big 12.
Richardson is a big boy who should continue to climb up NFL draft boards.
Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State Bulldogs
Mississippi State allowed 22 sacks in 12 games this season. It's an average of almost two per game, but Jackson didn't allow a single sack all year.
Jackson was flawless all season, and he was even good enough to take home the Conley Trophy, which is awarded to the best football player in Mississippi. He may not be the flashy name you were expecting, but he was just as effective as any other lineman in college football.
