I will have to give the offensive line a low grade due to injuries and the fact that they are unproven.
The starting lineup will more than likely look like this: left tackle Carl Gaskins, left guard Alan Pelc, center Jonathan Cooper, right guard Travis Bond, and right tackle Mike Ingersoll.
There is a good mixture of upper-classmen and lower-classmen on the line, but Gaskins and Pelc have been injured keeping them out of Spring Practice. These two must get better just so that the line can be slightly above average.
The only way they can get above a C- level is for the depth to improve. The key players who can provide depth are sophomore Brennan Williams and junior Cam Holland along with true freshmen James Hurst and T.J. Leifheit who is also injured. Leifheit’s injury will definitely push him back in the depth chart for the time being.
Reports are that Hurst looks good earlier which would be huge news for this line, and ultimately for T.J. Yates and the whole team.
Due to injuries and no previous success, I cannot rate this line above a C-.
